Durable, quality self-assembly kit which was a lot of fun for my son and I to build together. As an aside, he also had the Coveralls which he is not at all keen to take off at the moment as he describes them as 'super comfortable'! The instructions are OK but it take take us a while to get started as we um'ed and ah'ed a little bit over the first stage. To be fair, this was probably due to my lack of DIY skills more than anything else but once we had cracked it, it was really straight forward. We did have one issue over the fitting of the axles but a quick email/call to Wulstan sorted us out very quickly and we were able to compete the cart and give it a test run that day. The next stage in the father/son story will be to design and implement a braking system for the cart which is probably due more to my paranoia that anything else. I just did not want to see the cart pick up speed down a hill without any means of stopping other than hitting something at the bottom! The pictures on the Facebook page show the extent of previous customer's imaginations when it comes to design so we will have a close look at them and work out what we wish to do. I think he wants to put an engine on it next... Noooooooooo!!...not without brakes anyway!
All in all, great fun. Great service from Wulstan and Muddy Knees and just brilliant to support a local Worcester-based small business.
Completely brilliant. The parts are extremely robust and all the timber is great quality. Even though the kart is really solid, the chunky wheels make it easy to pull and it rolls and steers nicely. I'd say construction is definitely a joint child and adult project for anyone under 13/14 y-o because the quality of the timber makes it hard work, but that's part of the fun. Can't recommend it highly enough - will give years of fun as it is, but lots of opportunity to personalize it too.
Great fun building together. The instructions are sufficient to enable a kart to be built, but it doesn't go into too much detail, so you end up with a kart that is yours. Goes very well - accommodates both me and my son at the same time! We're looking to pimp the ride with mud guards and seat ( I got covered in mud down our muddy lane when sitting on the kart!)
Brilliant kit, just over four hours of happy measuring and building. Really sturdy axles and off-road wheels, perfect for most terrains, from grassy hills to flint and chalk tracks. My eleven year old son said "give it five stars!" Highly recommended, we bought two kits and are about to start the second with the younger son. Great company service, Wulstan really helpful and super to deal with. Thanks!
My twin 9 year old grandsons helped with the assembly.This was a straight forward job with clear instructions. The Go Kart is sturdy and has pneumatic tyres. My grandsons have had a great time riding on it and also enjoyed helping with the construction. I highly recommend this product.
A great piece of kit, so simple to put together. My 12 year old daughter and I thought it was like 'big Lego'. Will provide the whole family hours of fun and not a computer or smartphone in sight for a while. Bliss! Practically no waste either as the packaging is the go-kart. A very clever idea.
