Too funny!

Loved his "eeek" on the last run, before he had to reverse out of the grass.

Thanks! Yeah, I realized about the helmet thing after I put it all together. I was going to make him wear his bike helmet just for effect, but he would've balked anyway.

It was fun regardless, and now he's hooked! Thank goodness for savings accounts...

Awesome! Thanks for sharing. Did you get worried that he'd clip your e90 at the finish? It looks like he gets pretty close.

yes, the wife & I already discussed this and I intend on finding a local track. And, at some point we're gonna check out a Formula 1 race. Haven't decided which one yet... but we'll be there!

Nice u need to look into COMER kid karts...to get him started...they may go like 35-40 but the chassis are really adjustable to get him started and u to learn on how the karts work..
Then I would look into Rotax classes..I just did a race last weekend were there were 2 formula Bmw scouts out there looking and asking the officials who were the next best drivers out of the rotax program were..
theres always Formula 1 drivers coming out of karts as welll..
here is some websites to check out!
here is one the best kart sites out there for parts etc,,heres a link to a direct kart for your kid!
http://www.cometkartsales.com/store/...s/babykart.htm
heres our local club:
http://www.lakc.org/
heres the rotax thing:
http://rmaxchallenge.com/

let me know what u think man!!

Yeah, those electric e46 M3s are torque monsters at 0 rpm. Didn't he DNF one of the last runs?
