Not Your Grandpa's Golf Cart

Most of us have driven a golf cart at one time or another; either on the golf course, around the campground, or in your uncle's back yard.

I don't think that I am alone in saying that it is not much of an exhilarating experience. They top out at about 12 miles per hour, struggle up hills, and have tacky upholstery.

But not these bad boys. Apparently the newest trend in off-road motor sports is tricked out golf carts.

Check out the video, courtesy of the Wall Street Journal:


Yet another fun, pointless, motorized toy to sink grotesque amounts of money into.

The electric powered models use 96 Volt batteries instead of the original 36V unit, and the gas powered ones can borrow engines from snowmobiles and motorcycles.

Yowza.
