The go kart club operating under Department of Mechanical Engineering, FISAT is a club with a vision of revolutionizing the automobile industry. The main objective of this club is to prepare mechanical engineering students to participate in BAJA (Baja SAE is an intercollegiate design competition run by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)). The club was established in 2018 after a group of mechanical engineering aspirants created a fully functioning go kart named KARMA.The next stages planned by the students will bring about more advanced vehicles, fitted with superior technology.

Karma is an in house project which focused on producing an all terrain vehicle within a given short span and a shoe string budget. Karma 1.0 being a single seated cross-kart having a 98 cc 2 stroke single cylinder gasoline engine producing a maximum power of 7.8 ps@5600 rpm and a torque of 9.8 Nm @5000 rpm is the first successful creation under it.

The 2014-2018 batch of mechanical engineering students of FISAT have dedicated Karma 1.0 to subsequent batches to develop further by laying a platform for new lines of Cross-karts and go-karts.
