This Smart Go-Kart Will Teach Future Generations How To Drive Tastefully

I had a pedal kart, and now a karting membership, but I had none of the “in-between” toys like Power Wheels, minibikes or an ATV. It was a treat when I was able to try out a riding lawnmower, or go karting somewhere, so it’s with great envy that I present the Actev Motors Arrow—a 12 mph (20 km/h) child’s toy that can be controlled from a parent’s smartphone.

Designed for pre-teen drivers that have outgrown, say, a Power Wheels, the Arrow’s higher speed and parental controls seem to strike a good balance between being useful and too nanny-like. We live in an age of helicopter, er, helikarting parents who will be impressed by the accident avoidance features, notifications for inactivity and collisions, and geo-fencing.

I think it’s cool that kids (aged 5-9) will be able to change the sound of their electric karts, attach plastic drift rings to, well, drift, and install different body kits. The company says it’s working on “distance-sensing smart cones, laser tag sensors, and gaming apps”—I suspect it’s all fun and games until the kid from down the street tries a reverse-entry drift around the swimming pool.

I’m sure we all wish we lived in a world where every toddler was handed a 50 mph sand rail and where the neighbors didn’t report every single thing to the local constabulary, but having a quick electric kart sized to work in smaller spaces, like a cul-de-sac, seems to be a smart move for Actev Motors. The kart is available for pre-order now, with deliveries expected in early summer.

What do you think of the Arrow?

This Smart Go-Kart is really cool. I think all children will be delighted if they have a Kart that is absolutely safe for them. And since safety is very important these days, parents should take care of children not only in life but also on the Internet. That’s why I use https://www.mspy.com/kik-spy.html, and this application is the best I’ve used. So with this Smart Go-Kart and the mspy app, we can be sure of your child’s safety.

Wow, It is really great cart! I hope to buy one for my son. However, I would like to leave him alone in his “car”. So, I decided to download one of these smart applications for smartphones from https://bestparentalcontrolapps.com/how-to-spy-on-a-cell-phone-without-having-it/ it will give me a possibility to track his movements and I will know where is he.

Looks like we should make an adjustment to the rear wing, take out some downforce, and look for some more top end.

Starting at $1000? Yeah, no thanks. Razor Crazy Cart is cheaper, a LOT cheaper, and arguably more fun to teach control. It is made to show drift dynamics.

Just waiting until one bonkers parent puts in a mega electric motor and lets their kid become the maddest drifter on the street
