The Jeep Revolution BFR-3 Go-kart Is A Kid’s Dream

jeep-revolution-bfr-3-go-kart

Being the age I am, the kind of wheeled toys I had as a child never involved much more than a flimsy plastic trike with a big wheel up front; you know the ones, straight from the 80’s golden years. Man, what I wouldn’t have given to get my hands on the Jeep Revolution BFR-3 Go-kart.

The Jeep® Revolution BFR-3 is a sturdy go-kart with no fewer than three gears, back-pedal brake and a unique system that allows you to pedal both forwards and backwards! Thanks to the double ball bearings steering is extremely light, making you very manoeuvrable in every curve. The go-kart can be extended with a second seat, for instance, so your friend can join the ride. And if you do want to take a break, you can simply put it upright in the shed!

Optional equipment includes a sport steering wheel, heavy duty brake pads, a spare tire, and even a ‘board computer’. So not only is the BFR-3 already pretty badass, you can actually upgrade the darn thing? It’s awesome… but come to think of it, even if it would have exited in my childhood, I never would have driven one: it’s $1,000!

The DTV Shredder Is A Sick Off-Road Skateboard

ultimate-offroad-segway-alt-640x533

To call it a skateboard is really stretching the definition, but you are technically looking at a “vehicle” on which you’re meant to stand, and it does have what the makers are calling a “skateboard deck”, so we’re going with it. It’s called the DTV Shredder and is the most badass means of locomotion we’ve come across in recent memory. Sporting two massive tracks and a 4-stroke, 196cc, 14hp engine, the Shredder is capable of 25mph+ speeds in pretty much any terrain. Steering is accomplished through leaning left or right, giving the rider the sensation of carving turns that’s familiar to any skate or snowboarders. And the best part is that the company, BPG Werks, is developing a 48hp model that will be capable of traveling at 60mph+. It already has a working prototype that was brought to Travis Patrana’s house and ended up doing backflips, Can Cans and Madonnas by the end of the evening.

The regular DTV Shredder costs $2,599 and is available now.
