    I used to have one.....got it when I was 11 or 12. Had a 10hp honda motor, and like 27" tall basically bogger knockoffs on the back. Had a locker, that thing would FLYYYYYY (literally sometimes lol), had way too much fun. Then I sold it and bought my truck haha.

    11hp total, it should go at least 40 right? I dont need something extremly powerful, just something decently fast.

    I found some kits to buid you own, that would be an awesome project?

    Looks like it may be fun, but that cage is worthless. Hit it right and it will collapse.

    If you want a real offroad go-kart, get a Honda Odessy. (sp?) Some of the most fun I've ever had.

    Can't get much of a quad for $800 these days, even used. Seems like a decent deal to me from the pics, but who knows for sure. Im use to pretty high prices for stuff like that, everyone wants that kinda thing for the dunes here so its always pricey.

    A homebrew like that, its really hard to tell the quality of the work/material/etc from pics on the net. Go look at it, then decide.
