    So after having my 9 year old put this thing through it's paces, I wanted to give it a review. So far there's nothing negative to say. Came exactly as described and was easy to assemble. Even started up on the first pull. He hasn't managed to break anything yet and that's saying something. Very glad I bought this. Also, I'm 6' tall and I could climb in there and ride him around the yard to show him what it would do.

    P.S. the shipping crating was a nice little bonus of light gauge steel angle and box tube that can be reused for all sorts of stuff if you can weld.

    We have had this Go Kart for about a year, Just to clear a few things up nothing has had to be replaced, Only thing I’ve done to it is proper maintenance on oil and filling it up with diesel 😂 joking obviously gas. This go kart has BALLS, There is a throttle screw that you can adjust I just yoinked it out so it can go it’s fullest speed/rpm, There is another way to make it faster to which I DO NOT recommend basically taking out the governor which I have not done and don’t plan to. My brother is 130 pounds and he was ripping in the snow, I am 6’2 250 pounds and I even rip in the snow! Not recommended but we attached a rope and attached a plastic sled to the back and it pulled me and my brother! The max weight capacity is 400 it says. Me and my brother are close to that and it handled just fine in SNOW, Also I am really impressed on how good it is on ice it actually has pretty good grip you know if you had some ice in your backyard you shouldn’t have to worry to much. Overall very impressed also for delivery I was lucky, The delivery guys where able to bring the big box all the way back to my shed (this is when it was warm out and no snow) I heard many complain about them dropping it off right in the front but I guess it depends on what type of delivery guys you get. I have had one problem in the past that is now fixed, The Torque Converter has come apart on me somehow randomly one day it went into pieces but I was able to find all the parts off the ground and reassemble it with nothing broken. JUST A TIP: Make sure you occasionally check to make sure all your bolts and stuff are tight (especially when you first assemble it) I believe that is what caused my torque converter to come loose. One more thing careful leaving it running the go kart started moving slowly on its own by its self occasionally I’m going to look into that could just be the throttle getting stuck cause of cold weather nothing major though. Hope this review helped but yes it is pretty overpriced but I still bought it. One more thing if you read this far, We have flipped the go kart 😂 kids being kids you know. We had helmets on but where not buckled and the roll cage held up to me and my brother. There was no damage and no injuries so when the go kart comes in make sure you install the roll cage correctly and you will be safer than ever!

    Very easy to assemble. Took about an hour and a half to two hours taking my time with it. Having a 2nd person definitely makes a few tasks much easier. Added some inexpensive flashing bicycle lights on the back for some added visibility and safety. Have had this for about 3 months and havent had any issues with it, but then again we arent being to hard on it. My daughter is 10 and fits in it perfectly. I'm 6 foot and getting into it with her is a bit of a squeeze, but its manageable. It's a bit smaller than I was expecting but it's still a blast to use. With the two of us in it I would say top speed is around 20mph.

    We have a gravel track, and run it hard! Even flipped it once (after wetting down the track) and it still runs like a champ! Turn the governor down for the grandkids. I would recommend this to anyone who wants some fun, that kids can enjoy also! We race cars normally and find this to be a fun outlet when not at the racetrack.

    The go-kart is shipped in a steel angle iron crate. Assembly is fast and easy. The hardest part is disassembling the crate. (Power driver is a must, in my opinion, with a 10 mm socket.) It comes with a tool kit of everything you'll need to put it together and maintain it. Assembly takes about 2 hours, including all the tube padding. I have a problem with the parking brake not working, but I'm pretty sure it's just an adjustment to the spring mechanism, I have to push the locking pin in to get it to work. Assembly is only the rear wheels and the cage, basicly, and all the padding.
    Only basic skills needed to assembly. Added only about 2 oz. of oil and it was full. (oil cap and dipstick are very hard to get to, on the rear of the motor, behind the seat back.) Started on first pull.
    My 10 year old granddaughter simply loves it. So far it seams to be a safe, well made kart. ( Don't forget helmets)

    Bought these in September of 2018 and probably have only 5-10 hours on them, so they have been lightly used. We only use them on our property, which is 1.4 acres of large hills, grass, and dirt. So when they are used, it's not just flat lands they are being driven on. I read other unfavorable reviews on how these fell apart after 8 hours of use and I am cringing. So far so good for me. I would be upset if that happened, with the money spent on these "toys".

    I just did it's first oil change and changed out the sparkplugs, which I learned on line. There's actually a YouTube video on how you assemble these out of the box, so it wasn't that hard. There are also videos on line on how to perform some simple maintenance, which is very helpful. I believe a little maintenance goes a long way and has worked for me.

    As you can see in my pictures, I left the carrying baskets off the rear of the go-karts, as I thought them unnecessary and save on weight (not that it matters, these have a 400lb limit to them). Leaving of the baskets make refueling easier (tip: make sure you use fuel treated with stabilizer, so it won't gum up the carb).

    My boys are 10&8 and love these things. They always use their helmets (always kept on the seats) and seatbelts. The seatbelts, in my opinion, are weird. There are two shoulder straps that are buckled across the stomach region. Maybe I'm doing it wrong, which is totally possible. Either way, these 2 go-karts I purchased are flawless and am very happy.

    I did a ton of research before purchasing this Coleman go cart and I am glad I did. Did not want to spend a ton of money on some of the higher end models until I new how my son would take to it. He has rode power wheels in the past and this is his first "gas" powered cart. He absolutely loves it, he does extra chores so he can get more ridding time on the go cart. I was first going to get the Coleman one sitter or the mega motto one sitter but did some digging and many people where having a hard time getting parts for the mega motto so I turned my attention solely on Coleman, he loves the fact it has 2 seats so he can take a friend a ride, heck he even takes good old dad for a ride around the property and I weigh 200 pounds, this cart can easy handle the load capacity that they claim of 400 pounds for sure. It is built very weigh and I can not say enough about the great way they shipped it. The outer box was a little dinged up but that is to be expected as this is a very large and heavy item but the cart is enclosed in an angle iron cage that you have to disassemble first to get the cart out and start putting it together. Some reviewers frowned upon this but I like the fact that they did not go cheap on the packing material and nothing on our cart was damaged at all. The cart is well designed but there are a few things that are somewhat negative but does not nor should affect its over all rating. The oil fill/dip stick is in a pretty hard to reach area but with the right long funnel its not to bad, I also use a funnel putting gas in as the gas cap is right below the back rack, the funnel makes it much easier to put gas in. So far it handles very well, the seat belts are great, the roll cage seems very sturdy, On my sons birthday I think the grown ups had just as much fun ridding the cart and my 4-wheeler around as all the little ones did, and by the way if you are worried about your son fitting into this as some reviewers said it was some, the seat will go back and as long as you are not really tall you should be fine, it says for riders 13 plus but my son got this for his 6th birthday and let me tell you he drives it like a pro, I had to move the seat all the way up which makes it a little crapped for when he takes me for a ride and also put padding around the side and back for him but this way I wont be buying a new ride on every year and hopefully as long as we take care of it should last for several years to come, it does have a governor screw that you can adjust to make the cart go even faster and kits you can purchase on line to customize it but it is fast enough out of the grate as is right now for my son, he loves it and he always wears his helmet when he rides it along with the seat belt, it has a safety shut off button up front.
    Another cool feature of the 2 seat cart vs the one seat cart is the fact this one has shocks on the front and rear, does not seem like a big deal but driver one of these for several hours can get pretty bumpy on the ole back side so the shocks are great. Also like I mentioned early on my son his several power wheels which he has been ridding since before 2, we love them but good ole dad is constantly charging batteries, this thing runs on gas and let me tell you it will run for a long long time on a full tank. Get product and so glad we got this one, did find it cheaper a few places like sams club but got free shipping from Amazon and the guys put it right in my garage for me, Can't beat that. Thanks Amazon for another great birthday for my son

     I can't believe I bought a Go-Kart on Amazon. I had this in my cart for a long time and finally got the courage to order it. We love it. Assembly was easy (less than an hour) and we had it running. Last weekend we took it off road and it handled better than expected. I have driven it (170 lbs) with my daughter (60 lbs) and have had no issues. My daughter has also driven it and is doing great with it. This is her first powered vehicle and it's really easy to learn. The front is pretty light and the wheels lift up making steering tough in some terrain, but not a big issue. Transportation is easy. I rolled it up the ramps by hand into the back of a Ram 1500 for easy transport. Tailgate does not quite close with the short bed (1 inch too long), but not an issue. For the price and convenience, I would definitely recommend if you are ready for a first go-kart.

    This go kart is a blast. I'm 5'8" and I fit, albeit, it's a little cramp. Quality on the frame is so so. My go kart had a big paint chip missing by the passenger foot well. My brothers go kart had a lot of tiny scuff marks. So be prepared to have a frame that is going to have blemishes. As for the engine, it has plenty of power and the go kart can hit 30 mph on the street. It always starts on the first pull and is uses regular 10w30 oil and 91oct fuel. It doesnt come with lights or a battery, but you can always add those. Overall, this go kart is worth every penny.
