    Great, but definitely not for kids under 8, June 7, 2006

    I had a Power Wheels toy for my girls when they were 2 and 4. Now that my son was turning 4, I didn’t want him driving around in a pink Barbie Jeep.

    I went and bought the Ground Force but it is significantly faster – the Power Wheels tops out at 5mph (but also allows you to lock the speed to a max of 2.5mph), whereas the Ground Force has a max speed of 12mph.

    I must say though, that I (a 40 year old man who weighs 165 pounds) LOVE this thing…It was fast, nimble and my neighbors got used to seeing me drive around the neighborhood. But, ahem, where was I? Oh yes, back to the kids.

    My 6 and 9 year old daughters love this car since it is significantly faster than their old Power Wheel car. I was even able to take my 6 year old out with it when I went roller blading and she was able to keep up with me and then some (we went out for about an hour (so figure we went about 8-10 miles since we weren’t going the full hour.

    That being said, it is way too fast for my 4 year old…and even my 6 year old who knows how to drive was doing a series of figure 8’s in the street at max speed and loving it…when she lost control and ran full speed into the curb…she was NOT a happy camper, although she wasn’t seriously hurt.

    The car does sit low though…so if a child were to run under an SUV…there is a very real chance the child could be seriously hurt though because their face would smack into the bumper…so PLEASE be mindful.

    I allowed our friend’s daughter who was 5 to drive the car in an very open field and she loved it…but ended up losing control as well and running into a play structure. She hurt hurt herself and broke the seatbelt because she panicked and went full speed into the structure…she wasn’t seriously hurt…but I have definitely re-thought my stance about letting ANY child under 8 or 9 drive the cart by themselves.

    Because there is no way to lock out the max speed…the children should be very carefully supervised. I do drive my 4 year old in my lap (and even drove him to pre-school one day in the morning (which he loved btw). Of course, I did look a bit stupid driving home in this go kart in the morning near the school…but my son was VERY excited! ;)

    Please please be careful with this car with young children.

    Outstanding FUN — need better manual, December 5, 2004

    This review is from: Razor Ground Force Electric Go-Kart (Sports)

    Our son received this for his 9th birthday and LOVES it. Unlike the review below, he had no problem acheiving 12+ mph.

    If you’re used to the Peg Perego electric toy ride-ons, this is very different. It’s very solid throughout, mostly metal with hard plastic. There aren’t any bells and whistles, just a variable speed forward throttle (no reverse) and brake, both of which work extremely well. This is a real go-kart: very low to the ground for tight cornering. The battery is built in, and with a very simple plug for charging — but the trade off is that you can’t stock multiple batteries for longer play time. Our son usually gets near the advertised 45 minutes of play time before recharges, and there is a nice indicator on the steering wheel warning of low charge.

    You will need a fairly large smooth area (like a parking lot) for your kid to use this go-kart. It doesn’t take bumps well being so low to the ground. The kart is small, so can fit in minivans/SUVs/wagons for transport.

    Assembly is simple for those who are mechanically inclined, made challenging only by the poor manual (more on that below). You put the steering wheel on (it requires a plastic inset on top and bottom and to make sure the bottom bolt is very tight) and put the seat on (may require taping down the wires under the seat). Add the flag and you are done.

    The one negative is that the provided manual is a joke, and Razor’s customer service tells me that a new one is being written. I suspect that the relative lack of availability of this model (at least one national retailer has discontinued it) is due to the poor manual quality. When I say “joke”, it is really LOL humorous. The mechanic who wrote it clearly was unhappy that any assembly was being left to the end user. It has comments like “use the provided tools only as a last resort” (they are actually fine) and a suggestion that you find a “real” mechanic to assemble it. It contains unhelpful advice, such as warning you the kart moves while in use, while not mentioning the need for plastic inserts with the steering wheel. The worst is that there is no discussion of the use of the product after assembly, such as what to do if the circuit breaker trips or how to maximize battery life (the customer service tells me that the battery should be used up before recharge, and that it should not be plugged in for more than 6 hours).

    So, if you feel uncomfortable with a poor manual, I suggest delaying purchase of this until is fixed. Otherwise, this toy is outstanding.
