GOKART VS BUGGY
One of the first things a potential buyer needs to understand is the differences between a Gokart and a Buggy. Gokarts are generally smaller. They have smaller tires, smaller engines, and are designed for asphault. Some Gokarts with slightly larger tires can be driven on both asphault and dirt. Buggies, on the other hand, are larger, have larger engines and tires, and designed mainly for the dirt and trails. Some States have allowed buggies to be registered as street legal. Check with your State
  
GOKART VS RACE KART
Gokarts, sometimes called Fun Karts or Yard Karts in the past, are not designed for competitive racing, but rather, for use on private property like the back yard, neighborhood, parking lots or anywhere you can get away with it. Race Karts are lower to the ground and are designed for use asphault or dirt race tracks. People who do not wish to race can still choose a race kart as long as you can find a place to run it. Many office parking lots are abandoned on the weekends
