Check out my new go-kart

Long story short, we ended up trading our one month old jetta in for this go-kart

It has paddle shifters, dsg transmission, launch control, apr chip, etc...It's not too bad for being what it is...Here are some quick pictures I took:

Those GTi's can haul balls with very little mods too. Very good choice dude. I have yet to hear of anyone that has had a problem with the MK6. Check out metrodubs.com if you feel like getting in on some local VW action.

Thanks. We're happy with the choice too. The Jetta was just not for us

This little thing does have a little kick. I was kind of impressed when I first drove it. It drives like a go-kart Oh, the stock exhaust sounds sporty too

Ewelina has been bugging me since the minute we got the car to take her to Bandimere

Alfred, so give us some more details... Is this one brand new? I see you mentioned it has the APR flash? Any idea what flash is on it? Stage 1, 2, etc.?

I bet it's a little rocket ship.

The GTI was really what I wanted to get before the Jetta. Ewelina didn't want to spend the extra $4000 at the time...but, now we ended up paying a little more O well, at least I don't have to look at the Jetta everyday.

It only has a stage 1 apr flash. I plan on doing a stage 3 upgrade (but that requires a lot) in the future. The stage 1 gives about 60 hp gain though accoding to apr.

The car is not rocket fast but it's plenty for Ewelina

So you told her to get the GTI before the Jetta and she declined because she didn't want to pay the $4K? Now you have some ammo for when you find your Porsche.

Yeah, she didn't want to spend the extra $4000 for a GTI. About the Porsche, if I come across a good deal, I'd buy it even without her permission
