razor crazy cart review

The Razor Crazy Cart line of kid rideables took toy stores by storm for years. There's no denying that kids go crazy over these ride-on toys because of its play play pattern is ten times more fun compared to the dated car toys on the market.

If you're a parent that wants to get a Razor Crazy Cart ride-on toy for your little one but still hesitant about it, then you've come to the right place.

Allow me to fully review the Razor Crazy Cart line in this article so that you'll see if the Crazy Cart line is worth the money you'll spend. Let's just say you're kids are going to LOVE you! Without further ado, continue reading down below.

Razor Crazy Cart Shift

Razor Crazy Cart Shift - Red
The Shift model features a simplified drift system that automatically engages rear end drifts so that drivers can keep both hands on the wheel at all times while focusing on steering and throttle control.

Standout Features

  • Simplified drift system
  • Entry level "Low" speed setting great for younger kids
  • Features a "High" setting which will allow older kids to enjoy as well.
  • Chain free drive system

Thoughts:

The Crazy Cart "Shift" is our top pick because it's amazingly versatile in that is works with younger and older kids alike. It is also the cheapest version in the Crazy Cart line up. If you are on a budget this is the choice for you!

Razor Crazy Cart 360 Spinning Drift

Razor Crazy Cart Electric 360 Spinning Drifting Kids Ride On Outdoor Go Cart
The Cart that started it all the 360 Spinning Drift is the original Razor Crazy Crazy Cart. It features a drift Bar which allows drivers to completely control their drifts, spins, and cornering!

Standout Features

  • Very powerful! Reaching top speeds of 12 miles per hour.
  • As safe as it can be. Features an adjustable seat belt and visibility flag.
  • Real throttle response.
  • Solid battery life lasts up to 40 minutes with continuous use.

Thoughts:

The 360 Spinning drift is our favorite model in the Crazy Cart series but the almost $500 price tag can be unbearable to certain families. If money wasn't a factor THIS is the tone one. This cart can even handle adults!

Razor Crazy Cart DLX

Razor Crazy Cart DLX
Multi-directional drive system allows the crazy cart to drive forward, reverse, sideways diagonally, and everything in between. All in all the DLX is an overbuilt version of the 360 without the ability to do 360 degree spins 🙁 and for that reason it is our least favorite. Although, it is a great option because not having those spins saves you $100 on the bottom line.

Standout Features

  • Reasonably priced!
  • Multi-directional driving
  • "Brodie" steering knob, think fork lift style
  • Go Cart mode allows for standard driving without spinning or drifting.

Thoughts:

While still packing more than enough entertainment value, the DLX Crazy Cart is last on our list because it isn't AS fun as the other options. That doesn't mean your kids won't enjoy it. We believe Razor created this model to squeeze right in between the other models price wise. What I do really like about the DLX is the "standard" drive mode. Sometimes spinning around and drifting gets old but just having a cool go cart around the house never will.

A Cart for Everyone

As expected from a brand like Razor, the build quality of their Crazy Cart products is top-notch. Although the pricier ones have a special treatment, of course, with added bells and whistles such as steel frames and more durable tires, and the like.

But even if you opt for the affordable ones, its build quality is still acceptable and will surely last for long. But if you have the cash to buy the costlier ones for its added features and more robust material choice, then go for it.

Build Quality

The design of Razor's Crazy Cart line looks identical to the bigger cart's for adults. After all, it's still a "cart" but only made for kids. Different Crazy Kart's come with different color options to choose from.

If your kid wants something that looks modern, then a black Crazy Cart is just what he/she needs. But being colorful and vibey is your kid's cup of tea, then there are other colors too such as red, blue, and white. Each variant also has design additions too.

The shift comes with a flag on the back, the XL has a higher chair that fits shorter kids, the DXL has safety mini rails on the side, and so on.


Speed and Other Features

Razor's Crazy Cart products have different motor speeds and features depending on the price. The most affordable one, simply called the "Crazy Cart", has a maximum speed of 12mph, which is already speedy enough for casual rides.

While the XL variant has a maximum speed of 14mph if your kid loves to be daring along the streets. Just make sure to let them wear safety gear and watch over them every time they go for a ride.

Features also vary depending on the product. The Shift variant, for example, has a longer battery life because of its smaller motor which consumes less power. The normal and XL variant, however, has bigger motors which consumes more battery life.

As you can see, each product has its own pros and cons. Smaller motor is equal to longer battery life but lesser speed. Bigger motors have higher speeds but also a short battery life.

Pricing


From affordable to costly variants, there's always a Razor Crazy Cart for everyone. Choosing the right cart for your kid depends on your budget and the features your little one wants.

The affordable base variant is already enough, at least for me. It already got good enough speed and features, but a bit lacking in build quality.

If you want to prioritize safety, get the "Shift" variant because of its smaller motor that has a maximum speed of 8mph, and of course, long battery life and affordable price tag.

But if durability is your cup of tea, the DLX variant has a steel frame and high-impact tires that will surely stand the test of time. However, the price of the DLX variant will surely take a toll in your wallet.
