That's awesome! I'd like to do that for my kids when they get a little older.

Defintely sounds like fun if they don’t get scared of driving it.

I know a shit ton about this. This is where I started racing around age 9 until 13-14 when we moved up speedway series cars. I'm just waiting on my little dude to turn 5 and we are going to be going wide open in this. I have a feeling we will be super competitive pending he is a good driver like his dad. We were super competitive and my dad is far from a car guy. I can't wait to do this with my son.

I just wonder how they can let some random no talent ass clown kid get behind the wheel of one of these cars that you can flip and roll. My son will drift like lightning McQueen if given the chance.

I reckon they screw down the throttle stops and have a remote shut off?!

I want to get there early because I just know some shit head parent (by that I mean kid) is going to ruin it for everybody by thinking his is kong in Mario kart.

I doubt I will get my kid into this as a hobby. No scholarship in that nonsense. :lol: We'll just continue to ride dirty.

So generally the training car is governed way down. They won't have remote shutoff but will have the kill switch mounted at the top of the cage so the track workers can turn it off.
