At a glance you can see that the Cougar is safer than a quad. It's a cool looking little car that will turn some heads.
The extended wheel travel of the Cougar makes a nice smooth ride even in the rough. Until you drive it you will not understand the value of putting the engine on the frame instead of on the rear suspension.
The wide stance of the Cougar is a by product of the longer wheel travel. The result is a kart that feels like it's on rails. Your kid will be able to carve the burms, and run the rough in a stable steel platform designed to do just that.
The reliability of the industrial engine will make for hours of fun. The Cougar can be operated by multiple drivers for extended periods.
The new Cougar has been reconfigured for ease of fabrication. The results are better than I expected. When designing for function, it is some times a surprise to get such an awesome form. With the aggressive posture of the Cougar Kid's Kart, it looks fast even before it's finished.
Longer shocks add to the look of the kart while creating a firmer ride.
The frame is tall enough to use a variety of seats and it also allows for an older driver. Your kid could use this car for many years.
