A kid in the neighborhood has one, prolly not the pro version. Its cool, quick for a kid, wish they would make something faster for adults. Prolly won't see that 23mph top speed for an adult, my ninebot scooter top speed of 19mph is tough to get from 15-19mph takes a bit for me at 200lbs.

I might be able to hit the 23. I'm about 70 lbs lighter than you

The company I work for had an auction last year and I bought 2 of these - one for about $730 and one for $530. Yes, they were both the Pro version and I have a picture of them in my living room to prove it. When they arrived in the gigantic boxes, I realized they were just too big to keep in our NYC apartment with no local place to use them so I sold them on Craigslist for $1250 each to some very happy people. I did really want to try them out but knew that if I removed them from the box, the value would go down significantly.

Yeah it peaked my interest asI had a son but the kid is a tard so 🤷 maybe I could play with it. I see a local shop sells them, Renntech, so I went over and Holy shit...your kid better be a budding Max or Lewis to justify $75k carts..

As a kid i also thought a cart would be cool.
But to be honest: Where would you drive the cart? Driving it on the streets is freaking dangerous, because nobody can see you Also at least in germany illegal i think

And a cart track is expensive...

seems really cool... but let's say you hit 20 MPH on it, that seems really slow for a go cart... especially for a vehicle that is so low to the ground... those city scooters can sometimes do 20 MPH and that feels way different

I'll find out this week. If I don't like it, I'll return it.

I'm sure someone has made them faster. Anyone here know about modding it?

20mph only feels slow until you need to brake/steer or hit something. Then it gets serious real fast. Riding this stuff on the street is nuts, even with a helmet and full suit (and who's going to be a dork wearing a helmet in their neighborhood). Save it for the cart park.

What's that old saying? Something like "What's the best trait a kid can have if he wants to be a racecar driver?...a ballistically rich dad."

For what that cost you could pick up a used racing kart that goes twice as fast.

Bought 2 of them over a year ago and still running strong. went through 2 rear tires and just installed new front ones. one of them was from my 4 year and he loves it, he's good at driving it too. I bought a trailer to transport to this big park that we have where everyone is on electric scooters, we def turn heads when we bring out the gokarts. LOL. How you liking yours so far?

20 MPH is VERY Slow for a GO Kart... there are 80 MPH shifter carts around.. like i said above, 20 MPH on a scooter that you stand on is very fast because the wheels are tiny and you have no stability... on a low to the ground go cart with 4 wheels... its an utter waste of money... and judging by this gentlemen's story, its a complete waste of $... i have a hybrid bicycle i can easily do 20 MPH on with my own 2 feet.
