For Christmas, Liam got his first gas powered Go-Kart. When I had my shop and Go-Ped racing team, Hookupz, we used to race Go Quads. They don’t make this model anymore, but it’s perfect for kids. The Super Go Quad is a 22.5cc direct drive go-kart. I like this model because it’s not chain drive. Chain always needs to be maintained. The direct spindle drive is perfect.
The first time Liam drove the go-kart, I disconnected the throttle which allowed him to drive at idle speed. It did not take but a few sessions up and down the airstrip at my Grandparents ranch before it was time to connect the throttle so he could control it himself.
I was very impressed at how quickly he caught on.
