Nothing can be more exciting for an 8-15 years old kid that riding his very own car. And if they can take it to a racing level, things get a little more exciting. And what can be more pleasing for you than watching your kid on the top of happiness?
So, to us parents, a Go Kart is a way to put a smile on our kid’s face. But as a concerned parent, you’ll of course not jump right away on any random model. And that’s what this article is about.
In this Trailmaster Go Kart Review, we’ve listed six of the best Go Karts.
But first thing first, Go Cart is something that exactly sounds like its name. It’s a cart with one seat that is powered by either electricity or gas. And both of the types (electric motor and gas engine) doesn’t have any kind of serious transmission in them. Although some of the models use torque converter for reducing the gear.
A Glimpse of Trailmaster- the Brand
As you already know, this discussion today is going to be centered around all of the most popular go karts from Trailmaster, the brand. When it comes to producing premium grade go-karts and go kart parts for both kids and adults, Trailmaster is a prolific one. The brand has yet launched a series of karts since the date, and each of them had been able to stand out from one or another viewpoint.
You shouldn’t be confused with any other brands that have ‘Trail Master’ or some variation of the name. Ttailmaster itself is a brand that stands on its own ground.
However, today’s discussion is going to list and review 6 of the brand’s best Go Karts. We’ve kept some kid’s Go Karts, some XRX and Mini-XRX and some other models too. So, if you have a primary impression of the brand, you’re surely going to find a right fit of Go Cart from this Trailmaster Go Kart review.

TRAILMASTER XRX-R MID-SIZE 200cc KIDS GO KART Review
What Do We Like Most?
Our favorite award goes to the TRAILMASTER XRX-R MID-SIZE 200cc KIDS GO KART of today’s Trailmaster go kart review. With this mid-ranged kart on home, the family adventure becomes something that’d never happened before. If you want to make sure that your kid gets in a safe hand as long he/she’s craving for a go kart, this would be the best choice available.
The best thing we loved about this model is, being a mid-range model (in terms of both money and size), it goes up to 30 mph. Also, the set of safety features including hydraulic brakes, dual seats, cargo racks everything seems to be perfectly built for kids.
We have an entire discussion on each of its features. Keep reading.
Let’s appreciate how Trail master had been able to put a 200cc engine with pull start back up and reverse electric start in this model. The kids will find it easy to start and stop with just a couple of training sessions. Also, the engine also brings on a full form suspension. So, no harsh rides anymore.
Moving forward, the second most important of parents (first, sometimes) is the safety guide. The metal body is made in an extremely agronomic way to withstand the ups and downs of the road or terrain. Although it doesn’t have any side doors or so, but very few of the karts actually come with that. The Tubular steel frame features a cage of full upper coverage, side rails, and belly pan. So as long as your kid pulls up the seat belt, he’s under full protection.
The TRAILMASTER XRX-R MID-SIZE 200cc KIDS GO KART is a right model for kids of 8 to 14 years of kids. As we said before, it can go till a speed limit of 30 mph. But don’t be afraid if your kid dares to touch the highest limit. Because the model comes with a brake built of hydraulic discs. So, whenever he wants, he can pull the brake up and stay away from risky collisions. All you need to train is, how to pull the brake.
It’s made to be sitting for kids of 8 to 145 years of kids. And the 10.2 inches high seat is another proof to that.
- 31 inches- 37 inches back to seat to pedal.
- 30 mph of maximum speed.
- Heavy duty body with strong tubular steel.
- 200cc engine with electric start.
- 10..2 inches of maximum seat height.
- Cargo rack with upper roll cage.
- Enclosed belly pan and side rails.
- Hydraulic disk brakes.
- No side doors for further protection.

In this part of the review, we’ve made our mind to place something that’s made to be heavy duty, comes with an engine with high performance and high efficiency, and scorer in all sort of performance factors. Luckily, we’ve got Trailmaster 300cc XRX in hand.
The best impression of this Go Kart is created by a number of factors. First of all, the 300cc engine with a liquid air cooler came to be a very efficient one.
