removing vinyl

Trying to remove the vinyl from a kart I picked up. It's the thin stuff and it's a pain to remove. Been picking away at it with a razor blade but is there any tricks that could speed up the process?

Heat it up first. Like with a heat gun or, very carefully, with a propane torch. That's how I do it on the work vans.

heat as everyone has mentioned, use a dead credit card to start a corner peel then peel up a bit til it feels hard, lil more heat while holding up on area you just lifted, til soft again, vontinue lifting. Rapid Remover from a sign shop or 3m adhesive remover. Finish off with a good wipe down of rubbing alcohol to base out / neutralize the acid and chems in the adhesive remover.
