    A bit long of a wheel base for my taste but it came out pretty nice and looks like it does well in the dunes!
    Looks like they just kept the whole Quad drivetrain.
    If the front arms were built like a Taz Car Arms, then the front wheels can be pushed a bit Back keeping a shorter Wheel base to Wheel width Ratio.

    Mmmmmm, let me try again.

    What the Heck!!! I just watched it last night but now it says unavailable also on my end.
    Oh well sorry about that.

    I'll post some pics of kids buggies later that I have in my archives to make up for it.

    It played fine for me. Maybe it was offline for a bit.

    The first half of the video, where they show off the buggy, was a little to frenetic to get any detail, but it looks like they took the back half of an ATV and attached it to a two-seater frame. That's why it looks kinda long. It seems to work well, however.

    Oh Yah, it works for me now also.

    Wait! I think it works on desktop but not on Mobile. I tried looking it up again on my mobile and it doesn't work. Must have desktop only settings on the video.

    Yes it looks like a fairly simplistic way of mounting the Quad chassis and engine to a built mini front rail.
    It does look like it keeps up pretty well. Like, I said if the wheels were set back a bit and maybe spacers or extended wider axle in the rear, it would make for a fairly nice budget Kids Buggy.

    What kind of Travel numbers do Quads generally pull?
    I think my goal for a kids buggy would be minimum of 10" front and back. Im not sure a direct Quad bolt on can pull 10"

    I'm really anxious to get started on a kids kart! I think because it's a quicker turn around and a lot of the high speed aspects and clearances can be over looked a bit due to power to weight ratio.
    But maybe I'm anxious because I want it to not only fit the kids, but me also!!!!

    I think the only thing I'm debating on is a 2 seater or single. 2 seater may have a tilt if 1 larger kid or adult is riding. But I'm thinking of going with Max Airs to keep it on the budget end, so I can always bump up the psi on the heavy side.

    I also like Martins Kid buggy Bench seat. I've been thinking of a way to be able to shift the steering wheel from center for single seater to side for double seater with the pull of a pin. But that would require more steering joints, and maybe steering wheel throttle and brake controls.

    Okay I got to see it on the desktop. Nice job and it looks like fun.

    I am brain storming a very small buggy for 4-8 year olds. Like to go electric. What do you have in your archives for me rgvkid?

    Im not too Familiar on Electric, but I remembered thinking this one was pretty cool! If you click on the Uploaders name, I think he has a few more videos. It aint a K-1 Indoor Electric Racing Kart, But I wouldn't mind having one if I were 4 years old!

    I've seen a few other Tricked out Power wheels also. There starting to push the limits on those things.

    I know they are making some crazy leaps in the compact electric motor technology. You might want to look into the MotoredBicycling forum. They have some electric bikes that get up to 80MPH!!!!

    The Blue rhino is sweet! Kids dad must be a rock crawler? That suspension is done really nice. Sway bars? Kids showing some serious restraint by not trying to double that hill in the back yard!

    There is a vid on YT somewhere of a little girls kart built by her dad that is done really well. The rear suspension is a really simple three link and he front looks like the tazcar style arms. I cant find it but the girls name is in the title.

    Great pic of the girls with googles on in that first buggy.

    Holy crap look at the left rear@ 1:32 on the "Electric Go kart" video. It might be time ditch the home depot wheels before he ends up under a parked car.

    The last one sounds pretty good. Its a weird build for sure but it sounds great. Proper tires...well on the rear anyway.
