Drakart has been building super fast side by side’s for longer than the big OEMs have. Their most popular model the Scorpion is powered by a Hyabusa engine with 212 horsepower. While their latest release is a little more tame and can be driven by adults, we see it aimed at the up and coming youth drivers out there. Called the Racer 500, this mini buggy is built with the same quality and technology as the larger machine.

It’s powered by a 500cc, air-cooled four stroke,  engine mated to a CVT transmission and a 2WD drivetrain. An electric starter and 22hp will be available stock but you can bet mods will become available as the popularity of this machine catches on. 

For suspension, it uses proven dual A-arms up front and proper 5-link, trailing arms out back allowing for a full 14” of wheel travel at all four corners. The shocks will feature Eibach springs and the brakes have Wildwood components stopping all four corners. Simpson seats are standard.

Overall it measures 56-inches wide and 60” tall with a 74-inch wheelbase. The chassis is constructed with 1.5” .090 mild steel tubing. The rack and pinion steering has a billet aluminum case with hardened gears. 

The price is $9,900 and best of all it’s built right here in the U.S. Contact Drakart to order at (760) 713-1936 and tell them we sent ya. See more at www.drakart.com.
