Default power wheels 4 wheeler

k, im lookin for a power wheels atv for my son.

ive looked at the raptor but it gets bad reviews, and its blue.
http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...30910868102498

ive got my eye on this one, its got the right color scheme( red and black, which goes with my car,truck,and both quads), its cheaper, and it gets good reviews.

Wow, I was planning on buying the Raptor for my son in about a year but after that maybe not. I would say check out the site www.modifiedpowerwheels.com and look to see what they say. Those guys push their power wheels to the limits and will know which one will last and which one will not.

I went with the Raptor blue one. It's cheaply make, but they are all. He has learned how to strear and hold on, turn. So now he can now ride his lt50 by himself! There is another model out that is more like a quad. It goes faster than the power wheels. It made by Razor.

Dude some advice on the power wheels.. dont do it. The thing with those things is that kids learn that they can be going full speed and just turn the handlebars all the way and nothing will happen.. My little cousin rode powerwheels all the time and when he finally got to ride my little 50 2 stroke he flipped it on his first turn.. They teach all the wrong things, you would be better off with a used 50cc atv.

Hope he didn't get hurt to bad.... The parents should have adjusted the throttle so he couldn't go full until he learned how to ride. I don't think they teach all the wrong things though.....

It's between the raptor power wheels and this:

Wal Mart has this Rhino in the store for $100 cheaper than this site. Our little one will be two at christmas. His brother has a mini quad already.

He didnt get hurt at all and the throttle was adjusted haha.. powerwheels are either go or stop.. there is not inbetween, he could get the boy a real quad so he could learn properly, plastic wheels are too unforgiving and wont teach the boy how to lean into his turns or regulate the gas, but i guess he is just a kid, he will like it either way i imagine Just dont buy anything chinese or korean.

my son will be 3 april 21, dont know if he would be ready for a 50...dont know if he'd even be strong enough to turn it.

the 50 is recommended for age 6+, but i was thinking around 50mo+(beyond 4th b-day) would be appropriate(supervised porperly).

My son has the Raptor one. We have had it for a couple years and it has held up well.
