FINALLY: Razor Making An XL Version Of Their Mario Kart Drifting Scooter

October 15, 2014

Remember Razor's Crazy Cart electric drifting fun cart that we were all excited about until we realized a good portion of us are all over the 140-lb weight capacity? And then they announced they were going to make a version for fuller-sized adults? Well this is the reveal video for the Razor Crazy Cart XL, a cart that was built around the frame of a 6'3", 250-pound rider, and been successfully tested on riders over 300-lbs. It retails for $800 and ships in December, which just moved it to the top of my Christmas list, right behind the skulls of my enemies to re-gift as ashtrays.

Keep going for the video, but skip to 3:00 if you just want to see the riding action.

Thanks to Edith, who works for Razor and should really figure out a way to get one of these things under my keister.

    I've always been a fan of gokarts and razor scooters. When can I get my hands on one of these?

    i thought he was saying "WOOOOO wooooo WOOOoo" for a sec.

  • MustacheHam

    That's a pretty amazing drive. :D

    I want one, badly, but I'm disappointed they didn't discuss top speed, battery run time, or charge time, which really are the important parts.

    The battery they show under the seat consists of 3 12V cells. Razor has another product that uses similar battery. I can't quite tell if the size is the same, but assuming it is, it's a 12Ah battery. Now, how long that lasts you will depend a lot on how you use it. But that 500W motor will peak at about 20A. (Power is typically rated at peak output, which is half way through speed range, where it draws about half of the peak current.) So it should last you at least 30 minutes under worst conditions. And you can probably make it last longer if you make good use of inertia and don't just lead-foot that throttle.

    That's the good news. The bad news is that the charger they have in the store right now is 1.5A. That's 9 hours of charging. They might be able to have a charger that's a little better, but there's a limit on how fast you can charge this kind of battery.

    In principle, you can swap out the battery they have there for a stack of Lithium Polymer batteries. That will give you longer run time, faster recharge time, and if you know what you're doing, a bit of a speed boost. But it'd be a bit of an electrical project to get everything right, and LiPo batteries aren't cheap.

    They talk about some of that at the youtube channel.

    Top Speed = 17mph, 36watt quick change batteries, designed for riders up to 6'3", 250 lb. (though apparently they have successfully tested it with drivers over 300lbs).
