Gas Vs. Electric Go Karts

Posted by: joe

Tagged in: Untagged 

I have been asked on a few occasions why Fastkart uses Gasoline Powered Go Karts for our indoor go kart operations instead of electric go karts.

Even though there is a great deal of interest in hybrid vehicles and a lot of big brother government force in the direction of electric cars, the fact is, electric go karts cannot do the same amount of work as efficiently as gasoline powered indoor gokarts can.

Electric go karts cost twice as much, weigh twice as much, spend 1.5 minutes on the charger for every minute they run on the track, are no faster than gasoline powered karts, and you need twice as many of them to do the same amount of work as gasoline powered go karts because of the charging requirements of electric karts.

Consider these facts before you write me off:
1. Most Electricty is made by burning Fossil Fuels
2. Rivers are Dammed to Create Electricity
3 Nuclear Reactors are used to Create Electricty
4 Lastly, the sun and wind are used to create a very small percentage of our power

Burning fossil fuel to make electricity is very inefficient.

Juvenile salmon are captured at dams and trucked to the ocean.  This alone costs us millions and millions a year.

Nuclear power plants create waste that is the deadliest substance known to man. Oh' yea, that waste lasts for 25,000 years and there is no safe place to store the waste.

We may get to a point where a lot of our energy come from the sun or fusion reactors but until that time comes gasoline is the most efficient way to operate a go kart track.

Besides, electric go karts are like kissing your sister, you can do it, but it's wrong.


Winners Motorsports is DEAD

If you were unfortunate enough to purchase a Winners Motorsports gift certificate, our sincere condolences.  Though, I would rather light a candle than curse the darkness .  Bring in your Winners Gift Certificate any weekday before 5pm and receive 50% off any race.  Since we are giving up quite a bit, this offer may not be combined with any other offer.

See you at the races!


We are approaching the one day every man in America has circled on his calendar. That one day full of love, laughter, maybe some tears......and Pennzoil.

Valentine's Day? Heck no. I'm talking Daytona 500, which just happens to be on February 14th this year. (Sorry honey!) For all of you who can't make the 2,800-mile road trip, there's no need to fret. Spokane's own Fastkart Speedway will let you put the pedal to the metal as if you were Jimmie Johnson (or Danica Patrick) on the Daytona racetrack.

Have you ever been on the same track as Antonio Banderas? How about Tom Petty? Take to the track at Fastkart - you'll burn rubber on the same track those two stars raced on when they were in Spokane. With a number of hairpin turns and a real checkered flag, you'll feel like you're racing in the Grand Prix.

I felt like Spokane's own Chad Little winning the Goody's 300 at Daytona as I drove past the checkered flag waving above me. And so what if the go-karts can only reach 35 miles per hour? For the size of track at Fastkart, that's an insanely high speed.

If you have kids who aren't big enough to see over the steering wheel in a normal car, they can pretend to be a racecar driver in the big arcade while you're on the real track passing your buddy and yelling, "Eat my dust!" You'd make Tom Sneva proud.

Fastkart is one of only three tracks of its kind in America (the other two are in Salt Lake City and Las Vegas). And maybe - just maybe - you'll enjoy the go-karts so much you'll want one of your own. Great, because Fastkart sells those as well. Hey, it beats anything you'd try and create yourself with a motor from your old lawnmower.

Make sure you pick your race times wisely - owner and operator Joe Miller said Fastkart is known to have long lines on Saturdays. And don't be afraid of accidentally bumping into another driver on the track. These go-karts are made to stay on their wheels - this isn't Monster Jam. Thank goodness!

Happy New Year

Posted by: joe

Tagged in: Untagged 

Welcome to  the New Year.

Thank you to everyone that came to Fastkart in 2009.  Even with the downturn in the economy, you, our customer, gave Fastkart another successful year.

If you have found yourself in the unfortunate position of looking for work or struggling with the same old job, this is the best time to reinvent yourself. Upgrade your education, increase your skills, work smarter not harder.

Our country has just come off one of the best runs in history where anyone could be successful with a relatively common skill set.  Todays job market requires that you distinguish yourself from the next person. 

The easiest way to distinguish yourself, do what you love, love what you do.  If you are not in the position to do what you love, love what you do then do the best job you can.  If you do the best job that you can at what your doing now, new opportunities will present themselves.

These words may seem empty from someone like me, the owner of a company.  I have been homeless, ate jelly sandwiches for weeks, rode the bus, drove beater cars and decided to change my life.

Good luck in 2010
