Bottom Line Up Front:

The Razor Ground Force Go-Kart is a snappy machine for youngsters to zip around the cul de sac.

While other Razor products designed for 8+ yr olds can be safely used with even younger kids, you might want to exercise some caution with this one, though.

Because of its speed, it may get away from real youngsters. However, with proper supervision, this is a fun and affordable go kart.

Razor Ground Force Go Kart Review

There’s no doubt about what the Ground Force is: a road speedster go cart. With its solid 4.5 inch street tires, it’s really at home on pavement or hard packed, flat tracks. This machine is faster than some of the other entry-level Razor products designed for 8+ yr olds, like the Dune Buggy and E175 scooter. Those topped out around 10 mph, but the Ground Force can get up to 12 mph. It may not seem like much, but when you’re slung in 2 inches off the ground zipping along the neighborhood, it’s plenty!

Silver and black

One benefit of such a low riding design is that it’s quite hard to tip over, a good thing when you’re cornering or doing donuts. One downside of that, though, is the low profile makes it hard to see. It does come with a flag, but Razor understandably recommends this be kept to controlled environments free of traffic hazards and off public streets. Good advice with any motorized kids’ device, really, but especially with a go-kart.

 

Features of the Razor Ground Force:

  • Steel frame for durability and safety
  • Upgraded rear axle for increased maneuverability and enhanced steering
  • Molded aluminum wheels and solid 4.5 inch tires for a smooth ride
  • Quiet variable speed, chain driven motor
  • Easy to use handlebar throttle and brake
  • Shoulder seat belt and flag for operator safety
  • Up to 45 minutes or more of continuous use on a single charge
  • Powerful fun at speeds up to 12 mph

Other specifications:

  • Product Weight: 55 lbs
  • Assembled Product Dimensions: 41″ x 29″ x 16″
  • 24V (2 12V) sealed lead acid battery
  • Rechargeable UL approved battery and charger included
  • Small amount of assembly required; tools included

The Ground Force is a zippy street speedster (meaning that it’s not an off-road model, not that it should literally be used on public streets!), with plenty of pep and loads of excitement.

Things that are great about it:
  • Solid performance, reliable Razor quality
  • Speed and size to match younger/smaller riders
  • Fast and fun, but not too much for most riders
  • Very maneuverable and agile
  • Steel frame and shoulder harness seat belt for rider safety
  • Small enough to easily store and transport
Things that could be better:
  • Not a large go kart, kids may outgrow it relatively quickly
  • Has just enough speed that it may be too much for very young riders
  • Safety flag isn’t very high visibility, especially with low clearance design

One user liked it so much, he bought another

Mike M. found that his 11 yr old’s Ground Force was the hit of the neighborhood – so much so that he got another one for his other child…

I bought this item 4 weeks ago for my 11 year old, and he loves it, all his friends ride it ranging from 80lbs to 125lbs and they get good speed out of it. rated at 12 mph and it seems to do that. I rode it 210lbs, and it’s slower but still no problem.

it looks really small when you get it out of the box, but once you put your feet on the front rail, it’s not that small. Its very low to the ground, so you have to have the flag on. but you can’t turn it over, so much safer than the ATV’s. i bought a second one for our 6 year old last week, and it works great again.

Conclusion:

The Razor Ground Force Go Kart is an exciting electric go kart for riders 8 years old and up, with the possibility of use for younger riders if they’re ready and properly supervised. It may be too much for very young or inexperienced riders, but in a controlled, flat environment, this is a very fun low-riding package for a very affordable price.
