No experience with that, though it's essentially powered by a leafblower engine. Might be a bit noisy but should be fun for him to ride around on.

How old is he? if he's 9 then yah probably have fun. If he's 30 then maybe bigger would be better. My nephew is 23 and i dont think i would get that for him. At least not for $600+

But for most of us here we take old karts and rebuild or completly build from scratch. So 600 could allow us to build a really nice go kart.

I oppose this purchase. Too much $ for something that will be rapidly outgrown.

Hmmm...such interesting things coming out of China these days...



I'd be interested in its top speed....I am betting it is pretty slow.

first crosscheck prices:
http://www.bestscooterbuysstore.com/...c-gas-go-kart/
or
https://www.urbanscootshop.com/SandM...k-10_black.htm

the kart's model number is GS-003F made by Yongkang Mototec Technology co,.Ltd
search around, you will find cheaper offerings for it.
