I would have considered this if my kids didn't already have a 12V Power Wheels Dune Racer. Looks like fun and can go faster.

That statement could apply to 80% of the threads on here. That's a lot of downvotes!
Buying things you don't need is what RFD is all about.

I thought RFD was for people which don’t necessarily have the big money spending full pop; but OP with video shows definitely he has everything and yet goes to Costco....

Thanks OP.

We already own a hoverboard and we missed out on the sale for the SmartKart 3 Pro (hoverkart) from Showcase. It sold out quick for $69.99 from $149.99.

Our second option was the Hyper Gogo GK02 electric go kart kit from Amazon.ca but $599.99 was a bit much.

The Ninebot electric go kart kit was a definite no as we don't own a Ninebot S. Cost about $2,000+ from an Ontario reseller.

I saw the radio flyer go kart at our local Costco in Richmond, BC yesterday on Friday. Now thinking how to convince my wife to buy it.

You’ll never find a straight answer to this. Too many variables. Weight of kid, speed they drive at. Uphill? Downhill? Constant driving vs stop and go

Roughly, most electric ride ons for kids last about 30minutes +/- 15minutes

I picked up a used power wheels Jeep and the battery ended up being a dud. Saw some DIYs for swapping out to an 18v lithium tool battery, I use the Ryobi 9Ah battery. Gives the Jeep a nice speed boost by 50%. Battery lasts longer and stays fast through out, also charges faster.

Good choice on the battery. Ryobi is one (if only) that has low voltage shutoff built into the battery itself vs. the tool. I have heard of people permanently ruining their tool batteries draining them in power wheels.

It’s way too slow, for the same price get a e-scooter, faster and less space in the garage.
