Crazy Cart Shift
The Razor Crazy Cart Shift is a go-kart that lets you race around a track while remaining upright. You control the cart via a remote control, just like a regular kart. But unlike a standard kart, the Crazy Cart Shift uses electric motors to give you full 360 degrees of rotation. So you don’t have to worry about getting stuck in corners.
The electric go-kart is designed to be driven in everything but a straight line. This thing looks awesome. And it’s got a handbrake you can yank to throw the cart back. But it’s a little hard to operate.
The Shift is a lot smarter and safer than your average go-kart. It comes with a range of features that make it ideal for kids aged 4 to 12.
For one thing, it’s got a built-in braking system that stops the cart instantly if you let go of the pedals. There are also lights on the front and sides of the cart that flash when you’re approaching obstacles.
There’s also a handy camera mounted above the steering wheel, which lets you see where you’re going and what hazards might lie ahead.
And there’s a whole host of safety features designed to keep children safe, including a rear bumper and a headlight that flashes when you approach another vehicle.

In fact, the Shift is so good at keeping kids safe that it won’t allow anyone under 6ft 3ins to ride it.
The Shift is a carbon fiber bike designed for those who want performance without compromise. And boy does it deliver.
With a top speed of just over 80mph, it’s no featherweight, tipping some 15kg more than the recommended 54kg maximum rider weights. But it doesn’t feel sluggish at all, thanks to a twin-cylinder electric motor mounted low and close to the ground, delivering instant torque and putting out up to 250Nm of peak torque.
That makes the Shift a real handful, especially when combined with its ultra-sensitive six-speed Shimano Alfine gearbox. You can switch between gears with the press of a button, but even better is how quickly it shifts, making it easy to keep pace with traffic.
And while it’s great fun to ride around town, it’s equally good for longer journeys. With a range of up to 50 miles per charge, it’s perfect for commuting, and the battery takes just three hours to fully recharge.
But what really sets it apart is how well it handles rough terrain. Its suspension delivers a smooth, controlled ride, even on potholed roads, and the extra stability helps make the Shift ideal for riding trails and dirt tracks.

To start, you simply press a button on the remote to activate the motor, and then steer left or right by pressing buttons on the controller. To accelerate, you push up on the throttle. And to brake, you pull down on the throttle.
Buttons on the controller allow you to adjust the speed in each direction, and there are three different settings for acceleration and braking. There’s also a “no power” mode where the cart doesn’t move at all.
I tested the Crazy Cart Shift with my eight-year-old son, and he got pretty excited when we pulled off some crazy stunts. He loved trying to hit the wall and slide around the track. We didn’t try racing against another person, though, because the cart isn’t really meant for that.
The Crazy Cart Shift retails for $250, and it’s available online and at retailers such as Amazon, Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, and GameStop.
