What kind of a car is ‘Akiba Kart’?

1
The body of the kart is red. Although it is a mini car, each kart has a valid license plate.
2
The maximum speed is 60km/h. If there is no set speed limit, the legal speed is also 60km/h.

Just like a normal car, the pedal under your right foot are the accelerators and the pedal under your left foot are your brakes.

The gear is on your left side. F (Forwards), N (Neutral), R (Reverse/Backwards). The karts operate on automatic gears.
