Hello,

  My idea is to construct a kart and I already saw some motors that would probably allow me to do so.
  However, they are usually very expensive..
  While I was searching, I found this motor that has a very high torque but at the same time it's cheap, comparing to the other motors (DC) I saw. Am I missing something? is it because, despite having such an high-torque, it's a  bit slow and more suitable to other applications..

  Thanks in advanced !

The way you have it in your schematic isn't the same as how you have it wired up!

Thanks LarryD ! It makes sense.
Would you advise me to use it ? This car/kart will have to be able to climb ramps with a considerable inclination.

Do you need to use a servo motor or will a DC gear motor do?

You have to come up with some numbers and design criteria:
Speed
Weight
Incline
Forward/Reverse/Steering
Amperage/Voltage you will be using
Remote control
etc.

You'll need to do the physics to answer that.... mass, slope (wth is "considerable"?), velocity, acceleration, wheel diameter and other gearing aspects, force, torque etc etc. Mechanics 101.....

Edit... Looks like LarryD and I are thinking along the same lines....
