A little info about us... our background and history.

Like most karts shops in the early 60's we started as a home based business in the family garage in West Seneca, New York.
In 1961 the shop was moved to the local kart track in Depew, New York.
Over the next two decades the shop was moved several times until 1978 when the current location in Elma, New York was purchased.
The shop has been expanded several times over the years with the addition of a on site test track which is now know as MXK HotShot Raceway.

We have been thru several name changes during our existence.
  • 1960-1968 Art's Karts ........( founder Art Lipp Sr. / Sons)
  • 1969-1975 Mr. X ..............( Art Lipp Jr. / Peter Lipp)
  • 1976-1980 Mr. X Kartsville ...( Peter Lipp )
  • 1981-1983 MXK Products .....( Peter Lipp / Partners )
  • 1984-Y2K MXK Racing ..........( Peter Lipp / Leah Lipp )

We have maintained a Web presence since 1995 when we introduced the internets first online gokart plans.
Without bragging we can say .... 'Been there.... Done that..!!'
We have been building winning chassis and product since the 60's and will continue into the New Millenium !!
