Get a top kart or kids kart .They are smaller than the normal karts.It will have a comer 50cc motor.It is a great starter kart.We raced karts on and off for about 20 yrs.If your driver has never driven anything, then tie a rope on the back of it and walk or run behind until they are comfortable driving.Make sure they have all the safety gear.and I suggest a rib protector.Just take it slow.And Always remember that it is supposed to be fun.Check out www.4cycle.com it is great!! Have fun and hope this helps.

I have a prooven winning 99 Twister Offset that would be perfect for him. I'd spend the summer with him out somewhere other then a track driving it. It will need a motor, clutch but it'll have wheels, tires, seat.
I'd take $750 for it. The main thing is getting him comfortable in it. Putt Putt is a good class to start in since it is run almost anywhere. The bad thing about the Kid karts is that once your ready to move up you don't have a choice but to sell it.

Give me a jingle if your interested
