DONGFANG - BEST MADE LINE OF BUGGIES ON THE MARKET: We sell a lot of buggies and we have been dealing with buggies for two over decades. The Dongfang line of GY6 buggies are the top-of-the-line best made GY6 class buggy ever built. Why? See below and our article on what makes Dongfang different:
196cc engine with external torque converter
Automatic with Reverse
Though this kart has a 196cc engine it does not have a GY6 or newer style engine with the more efficient transmission system internal to the engine case. This vehicle has the traditional old style lawnmower style engine with an external torque converter, which is less efficient and more jerky. Though it is 196cc engine it produces less horsepower and speed than the GY6 150cc and perhaps even less than the modern 125cc newer engines. On the positive side, like your lawnmower this engine is not as susceptible to carburetor issues from ethanol does not have the i issues of the modern engine -- More BDX straight talk.
If you get this kart be sure to re-install the torque converter cover after replacing the belt. Over the years most people stop reinstalling the belt cover and long hair can get caught in the torque converter and literally rip a child's scalp off. Get this vehicle ONLY if you will be diligent about re-installing the torque converter cover. Even if your child does not have long hair what if one of their friends ride the go-kart while you are not around -- More BDX straight talk. This other option is to get a go-kart with the more modern engine where all of this is encased inside of the engine. Call if you have questions.
