How to play the go kart mod?

Once you have installed the go kart mod, you can play it in single-player or multiplayer mode. You can choose from 8 karts and 12 tracks in the vehicle and track selection menus. You can also customize your kart settings, such as tyre compound, fuel load, gear ratio, brake balance, etc. in the garage menu. Here are some tips and tricks to enjoy the go kart mod:

  • Karts are very sensitive to steering input, so use a low steering sensitivity setting in your controller options.

  • Karts have very little downforce, so be careful with braking and cornering. Use trail braking and throttle modulation to balance your kart.

  • Karts have different engine characteristics, so learn how to use them effectively. For example, shifter karts have a clutch pedal and a sequential gearbox that you can use to shift gears manually.

  • Karts have different tyre compounds that affect their grip and wear. Soft tyres have more grip but wear faster, while hard tyres have less grip but last longer. Choose your tyre compound according to your driving style and track conditions.

  • Karting tracks are very tight and twisty, so practice your lines and overtaking skills. Use the kerbs and apexes to optimize your lap times.
