Default Hello everyone. Dad to 4 young boys

Always wanted a go kart when I was younger, but wasn't in the cards. Now I'm attempting to make up for my parents' mistake!

Just bought a Chinese-made kart from a neighbor who is moving. Make and model of the kart are unknown to me. Anyone out there recognize what this is?

I'm fairly handy, however I don't know where to start. Would like to get some more torque to get this up to speed a little quicker. Budget is ~$500 for upgrades. Any direction would be much appreciated.

Boys range in age from 6-11.

Runs just fine. Oil looked to be in good shape but I still changed it. Needs 4 new tires. It's a little difficult to switch to drive and reverse from neutral. It is sluggish and take a while to hit top speed- looking to upgrade to make it quicker out of the gate.

It’s a buggy/ATV, not a kart. It’s a distinction that needs to be made and reinforced.

I love asking this: how come the guy you bought it from doesn’t know what it is?
How come you didn’t ask him?
Do you often buy things you know so little about?


This subforum is just for introductions and to say hi. That being said, this is probably the least-liked or least visited subforum on the site. You’d get more traction and interest in the main Go Kart Discussion (I should say that’s where we lump together everything with 4 wheels).
