What Things Influence Top Speed?

There are all kinds of things that can affect the top speed of a Coleman go kart. Terrain, horsepower and rider weight are a few of the factors that we are going to hit on today. It’s also really important to acknowledge that often times when you read an article or watch a YouTube video about the top speed of a Coleman go kart, it is not stock. There have been modifications made that have increased the top speed. All of the information that we provide to you today assumes a “stock” go kart.


Terrain can have a pretty significant impact on top speed. Riding in dirt, gravel or sand can and most likely will lower your top speed. Smoother, flatter surfaces will definitely allow you to hit a higher top speed. If you’re driving up a hill, and depending on the grade of the hill, you could see a pretty substantial decline in the top speed here as well.

Rider Weight

The weight of the rider also affects your top speed (and yes we know that this is a no brainer). A heavier rider may not hit the top speeds listed upon but a lighter rider may go a lot faster than those top speeds.

Weight of Go Kart

The weight of your go kart can vary quite a bit depending on which model you choose. Heavier go karts are going to require more horsepower to hit the same top speed as some of the lighter models.


If you go back up to our comparison chart, you’ll see that horsepower goes up as the go kart gets heavier. Some people make the mistake of assuming that more horsepower means a higher top speed and that is not always the case.
