Getting Started with Go CartingWritten by Mitch Johnson
Modern American children have long favored thrill of recreationally riding go carts as a pastime. The reason for long running popularity can largely be attributed to adults acceptance of go carting for kids because they witnessed safety of it, as long as proper precautions are taken. Children as young as six-years-old are able to drive certain go carts safely when recommendations provided by go cart manufacturers are followed. Helmets and goggles are a must for kids or anyone, even professional racers.
If you are looking to quench your child’s desire for a set of go cart wheels, you should first know what type and engine size is suitable for young kids. Go carts designed for children have special features to better accommodate them, providing more safety in addition to a smaller engine size. These models of go carts are typically recommended for use of children ages six through eleven.
Kids under eleven should not ride a go cart unless it is those that are specifically marked for their age range. These junior series of go carts are perfect beginner wheels for anyone, however they are sized small for kids, and those of you much older than recommended age will have a problem with that.
These carts are useful for beginners because they offer extra safety measures, such as padded brush bars, and smaller engine horsepower. A small engine helps a new go cart driver keep control, whereas larger horsepower could get out of control in hands of a child or amateur. The go carts designed for kid use usually do, and should if they don’t, have horsepower at or below four.
