    Made by a company called Twisted Fabrications.
    I bought it used so I got a good price. This one tops out at 43mph with an adult (200lbs) on it, I clocked it with my motorcycle this afternoon.
    I'm working on a governer to keep the speed around 20-25mph, maybe when she's older we'll let her open it up.

    That looks really cool! Excellent gift for a young child :party:
    My dad was looking at getting the Yamaha Rhino but it's undecided yet.

    ditto....I'm 22 and I still don't have one. :lol: However, I've been thinking about getting one and a little trailer to put it on. There's a couple places around me that I could run it in, and I think I'd have a blast with it. :party:

    May I inquire as to how much you paid for it? I've been looking and everyone seems to want between 1K and 2K for one that can do 45mph or so....trying to find a good deal

    There is a practical side to this... Just think how good she will be able to drive when she gets older.... I hope there is no cell phone holder in that......:lol:

    I gave $800, it's a little over a year old but in like new condition. The kid I bought it from got it for Xmas in 2006 then got his drivers license 3 months later, the go cart sat in the garage after that it has 5.5hrs on the engine timer.
    I watched craigslist for a few months and passed on others in the same price range that were "used a little more".
    And no there's no cell phone holder in it, but ironically her dad who works for AT&T bought her a phone for her birthday. All I could do was shake my head.
    I think my daughters more jealous than mad, doesnt matter I bought it because she kept telling me I couldnt buy a Power Wheels electric cart for the kid. And I didnt buy her a Power Wheels, I bought her something much faster.

    You got anymore room in your family for another grandchild? You must be the coolest grandpa ever! What are you going to get her when see truns 16?

    But I sure agree with getting kids into outdoor motorsports young. Makes then better drivers. In Newfoundland, where I am from, they just banned anyone under the age of 13 from even riding on an atv. Let alone drive one. There going to be a lot of hurt kids in a few years.
