The Kart is a go-kart featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Kart is a small low-profile go-kart with a single seat. The vehicle is usually depicted with bare frame and a frontal bumper, but may also be available with additional matching side skirts and a small fairing over the steering wheel frame. Other features include its rear engine and small racing slicks.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Kart has average speed, good acceleration and good off-roading. It is compact and capable of making sharp turns, although it can oversteer. Its low profile and light weight makes ordinarily small obstacles more dangerous.

The Kart is classed as a car, like the Mower, so CJ does not fall out of his seat when the vehicle flips over, additionally, the player cannot shoot forward from the Kart, despite having a clear view of doing so. The Kart is also able to drive under other vehicles with high ground clearance such as the Tanker trailer and the Monster Truck.

The Kart is powered by a 2-stroke engine, judging by the engine size, which is apparently coupled to a 4-speed gearbox in a rear engine, rear wheel drive configuration. The engine sound is rather noisy because it is mounted open-air, like a motorcycle engine.

The Kart only spawns at specific areas in San Andreas after the mission "Cut Throat Business". These locations include:


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • The Kart plays the radio station Radio X by default when entered.
  • The Kart's handling is similar to the "Perfect Handling" cheat. Given its low engine power, its handling is not prone to be altered.
  • The Kart will lose its side bumpers if it is saved in a garage.
  • The vehicle was possibly supposed to return in Grand Theft Auto V, as an unused police scanner audio file mentions it.
  • CJ will become slightly smaller when sitting in the Kart.
