The Technology

Our karts are designed especially for rental as they are modern, durably designed, reliable, handle easily and have lower maintenance costs than petrol karts. An Rush kart does not simply contain an electric engine (powered by batteries with an electric engine controller) instead of an internal combustion engine.

Our karts use the latest brushless AC technology, engine 48-volt with a maximum power of 12 kW, with a controller from 60 A to 400 A fed by 4 batteries of the latest generation (approved for electric competition karts). We use gel sealed batteries that are maintenance free. Frame Our unique frame is made of 35 mm steel tubes with adequate reinforcements, FIA approved with welding certification. The disk brakes are self-ventilating and the chain drive transmission is completely covered by the body of the kart constructed in resin with a multi-axle mat for security. We set up the ideal speed depending on the organization, the track length, the grip and the design.

Speed

All our karts are programmed with 3 forward speeds, a reverse, a stop and a slow. Safe and easy to control, each kart is pre-equipped for the installation of a full radio control. The high technology of our system allows us to change the speed (pre-programmed speed 1, 2 and 3) to slow or stop each kart, or all of them. But first we start you out at a novice speed level. Then the better you race the faster your kart will allow your speed to increase. If you hit the barriers, or other karts your kart will slow down. We allow you to race at your ability. We will not just hand over top speed; YOU must prove that you can handle the awesome power.
