I'm surprise this one made it past the lawyers.

Fark that. I'm not spending $400 for all the headaches that thing would cause.

Also max weight is 140, so I'm guessing most Farkers are out

You're falling out of that thing.  Need elbow pads, wrist guards...THINK OF THE CHILDREN

That does look fun. Killer sound system.

Where are the speakers?
 
2013-07-10 10:53:58 AM
Meh.  I'd rather have my douchebag neighbors buy these for their snowflakes than the mini low-rider motorbikes.  At least with this thing they are already in the tuck position when the inevitable spill happens.

Lawyers are already adding a special link to their web sites for "Injured While Riding Razor Crazy Cart"

That does look fun, but I don't ever want to see one in my neighborhood.  I'm all for my kids riding motocross, using lawn darts, skateboards, jumping off the roof with an umbrella to see if it works like a parachute, and every other dangerous thing I did as a kid.  But I hate all of these products made by Razor that allow kids to go superfast while being 1 foot off the ground.  And it's not because of the potential of broken bones or scrapes or bruises - all of that builds character.  My problem with these things is that I can't count the number of times I've almost run over a kid on one of those little motorcycles because they go racing between cars and don't pay any attention to their surroundings.  Anybody really believe that the only place this thing would get used is on a closed course?  At least when my kids are on their dirt bikes they are visible, wear appropriate safety gear, and don't have a chance in hell of a car hitting them.

Like the Big Wheel's hand break to lock one wheel to make spin outs easier, that hand brake is going to cause premature tire wear. Given the wheels are made out if licorice, look forward to another $400 scooter every 3 months.

/still have the scars on my knees and ankles from the great Big Wheel crash of 1973

I want four of them before they get sued out of existence.

That's smart thinking, right there. Also get extra tires.

I dunno, looks like they might use the same wheels as their scooters - could be a modular replacement like skateboard wheels are.  Speed wheels, grip wheels, street wheels, ramp wheels etc.

I like the cut from :34-:38 with the quarter pipe & launch ramp.  Some really good ideas in that shot!

Looks like serious fun, though.

The kid in the video is a legend at the local skate park, where he does backflips over concrete on a $1,000 kick-scooter.  Scary and amazing

/I'm sure his father is a Razor dealer.
 
2013-07-10 12:38:11 PM
Deceptive video. It is electric, very quite, and has a top speed of 10mph.
 
2013-07-10 12:51:36 PM
Dear God, that "singing" sucked.
 
2013-07-10 01:02:24 PM
So how well do the bodies hold up when they are used as bumper cars?

You know kids are going to crash into each other on purpose..

Ive got about 25 to drop, I just dont know from where. According to the video I need both my legs and arms.

My 8 yr old has their electric go-kart and loves it.  He would go nuts for this thing!

Still neat. I suspect any kids in this neighborhood on one wouldn't last out the day. I'm on one of those 25 mph raceways. Teens hit the pedal when they come around the corner and may or may not stop at the blind intersection at the other end of the street. Only three fatalities in two years, though. No need for speed-bumps, none at all.

So it's basically this for lazy kids:

Go get some exercise!  You want to go faster?  Pedal harder!

You'll see them (or knockoff's) on ebay in a year or so for less that a hundred.

How to properly ride a Big Wheel:

1. Borrow one from your neighbor's yard
2. Remove the seat back. Discard.
3. Climb the tallest, steepest hill available. Jumps optional but preferred.
4. Stand, (do not sit) on the seat.
5. Do NOT brake under any circumstances.
6. Repeat until Big Wheel is inop, or until called in for dinner.
7. Place remains of Big Wheel back in your neighbor's yard.

That's actually a much better video. The first video, since the camera moved all around, led me to think this think was probably a dog in real life and needed the camera movement and the sound to make it seem fun.

I want to get drunk and drive to work on the beltway on one.

Pheh, another razor product with a motor in it.  Whatever happened to kids riding bicycles and generating their own power?  I never even had a power wheels as a kid, probably why my calves are like rocks.

How long does the battery last before you have to shut it down for a day to recharge?
