Just getting into karting, buying stuff locally but wanted to get some ideas of good online shops who have big stock and ship fast, preferably near west coast.
Acceleration Karting, Comet Kart Sales, Fastech, Point Karting are several of the places I use.
Depends on what your after…
Have used Comet, Franklin, Fastech and Acceleration. I’m in the Midwest. But don’t ignore your local shop because one day, something won’t fit/work right or you’ve screwed something up and you’re going to need help.
Support your local shop first but sometimes you have to head online and even online you have to shop around for options. I have had good luck with these:
Depending on what your looking for you may find stuff in non kart place too. Metric hardware, oil products and racewear are some examples.
Only place ive ever seen sales on arai helmets and other products is Acceleration karting
PSL Karting has had sales on Arai helmets as well.
I like mondokart.com, but it is in Italy.
Has anyone used www.saferacer.com? They seem to have quite a good selection, and they’re pretty responsive to questions.
Pretty sure I’ve ordered from them once. Was fine.
They are a great option and they have great response in any question i have .
I’m with Ron on this one, they all sell simular stuff but not everything is the same quality wise. Depends what your after.
I use TS Racing, Comet, Acceleration Karting, Point Karting.
Another thing to consider is shipping. If I need something fast I go with the company closest to me, which is TS Racing as I usually get my shipment in 48 hours. However, TS Racing has some of the most expensive shipping, so for small (cheap items) I don’t use them, cause there is no point in buying a six dollar item just to pay 15 in shipping.
So the short answer to your question is, “It depends."
Another vote for SafeRacer. They are very helpful / know what they’re talking about if you call them. They also tend to have pretty good sales a couple of times a year on different gear if you can be patient and/or opportunistic.
