Anyone had a carterbro kart?

Anyone ever used one of carter brothers karts to beat around on? Thinking of picking one up for the wife and 3 yr old to beat around in on the more level ground here in the dez while I'm playing around on the TC with my daughter on her 50...like the Talon FX1502R....Would get a quad, but legally I don't think the 3 yr old can ride on it with her, and he has no concept of brakes right at the moment so riding a 50 by himself is a bit in the distance.

I've never tried one, but it sure looks like it could be lots of fun! Be certain to report back how you like it. (You know you're gonna get one )

I'm just kind of concerned with it only having a 150cc engine in a 500 lb vehicle....It's going to be just goofing around but I still want it to be able to go through some dirt..lol

You could fit a 600RR powerplant in it if it is down on power.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Re: Anyone had a carterbro kart?

Hmm, 12.5hp in a 600# package equates to about 22mph by my thinking. Do you really want your wife and 3 year old going much faster then that in something that looks more suited to have the flying walenda's handing from it then 'beating around' anywhere?

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.
