I'd be satisfied with that. I don't wanna $#!+ myself or die in a crash.

i would want to go faster

28 mph is slow about like cruising around slow when your running around on the roads

Your go kart needs to be able to hit at least 80 mph at half throtttle, then when you floor,it needs to be able to scoot sideways in the middle off the road.

I know it is not nearly possible, but it would be nice.

80MPH at half!? Nice until you come to an abrupt and FINAL stop.

FINAL = death btw.
