    The Radio Flyer appears to have impressive detail, and surprisingly shiny as well, just like a real paint job.

    Which ones real? Look, it even has that slightly larger gap between the hood and the nose cone. And the seam under the side view mirrors. Only real miss I see is the inner edge of the hood creases. Anyway, fun new game -- occasionally substituting Radio Flyer images for real Model S's and seeing how long it takes for people to notice. :)

    I really wanted one of these but then I saw the Actev Arrow Smart Kart and got one of those instead. Definitely cool!!

    I'm assuming that because it's so low when you go to level out, it would probably scrape/damage the under carriage or you would get stuck midway going up/down a hill.

    Damn you! My boys saw this thread and of course now it's me want, me want, me want !

    Regarding the disclaimer, it probably has no brakes?

    It does have brakes. It actually has collision avoidance (and it goes 20mph so I'd hope it has brakes!)

    Turns out i live close to their headquarters and a friend of mine had kids who will be helping product test it

    Thanks for nothing! I had finally convinced not to get the Radio Flyer Tesla and then you go and post this! :)

    Seriously, we need FACTS! Where is Motorweek???

    0-6 times in both setting 1 & Ludicrous!
    132 feet times (1/10 of a quarter mile)!
    Does battery size matter?
    Will they get a refresh?
    Will there be a hard top option?

    :D

    Lol. Actually no! I seriously was reading this thread yesterday. Went to a play date. Texted the other dad a link to the cart. Then he was like, oh, my kids are supposed to test some go cart next week or something. He suspected it was the same cart. Then later last night he texted me that indeed it's the same company.

    Total coincidence.
