Razor Ground Force Electric Go-Kart

Suitable for riders ages 8 and older, the sleek silver-and-black Ground Force go-kart attains a maximum speed of 12 miles per hour, making it the perfect kart for zipping around flat trails or a cul de sac. The Ground Force's quiet variable-speed, chain-driven motor is powered by two 12-volt batteries, which deliver approximately 45 minutes of drive time per charge. The molded aluminum wheels and solid 4-1/2-inch tires, meanwhile, help the Ground Force run smoothly wherever it goes. And operation is a breeze thanks to the hand-controlled accelerator and hand brake. Other details include a durable steel frame, a shoulder seat belt, and a flag.
The Ground Force, which measures 41 by 16 by 29 inches (W x H x D), supports drivers weighing up to 140 pounds and is backed by a 90-day warranty. Some assembly is required, though the tools are included. The Ground Force is designed for controlled environments free of potential traffic hazards and not on public streets.

Customer feedback:

1. I must say though, that I (a 40 year old man who weighs 165 pounds) LOVE this thing...It was fast, nimble and my neighbors got used to seeing me drive around the neighborhood. But, ahem, where was I? Oh yes, back to the kids. My 6 and 9 year old daughters love this car since it is significantly faster than their old Power Wheel car. I was even able to take my 6 year old out with it when I went roller blading and she was able to keep up with me and then some (we went out for about an hour (so figure we went about 8-10 miles since we weren't going the full hour.
That being said, it is way too fast for my 4 year old...and even my 6 year old who knows how to drive was doing a series of figure 8's in the street at max speed and loving it...when she lost control and ran full speed into the curb...she was NOT a happy camper, although she wasn't seriously hurt. The car does sit low if a child were to run under an SUV...there is a very real chance the child could be seriously hurt though because their face would smack into the PLEASE be mindful.

2. You will need a fairly large smooth area (like a parking lot) for your kid to use this go-kart. It doesn't take bumps well being so low to the ground. The kart is small, so can fit in minivans/SUVs/wagons for transport.
Assembly is simple for those who are mechanically inclined, made challenging only by the poor manual (more on that below). You put the steering wheel on (it requires a plastic inset on top and bottom and to make sure the bottom bolt is very tight) and put the seat on (may require taping down the wires under the seat). Add the flag and you are done.
