They both do well at driving it so im sure it wont be long before they get crazy on it . Zach all ready took his old man thru the mud big time .

Damn thing is really stable . It would take a crazy move to roll it .

I figure its safer then the quad i was letting him drive .

My kids got one just like it but red . Watch the front spindle area (they rip off) I re welded it and all the bolt together roll bar joints to withstand the Baja 500 . :)
Another neat trick I did was put rear shocks on it off a old dirt bike and then mounted all 4 stock shocks on the front . This cart will get my fat A$$ and one kid going about 25 - 30 mph over bumps .

Another note ...if your in the mud do not look back to see the rooster tail as the back tire is directly in line with your face and the spray is thick.

Can't wait until my boy is old enough for something like this... then he can go out and get whiplash just like his old man (fooling around at the mounds...)
