The GoPed Trail Ripper Quad has a menacing name. And despite looking like a body-off, ride-on lawnmower, it delivers dirt-track thrills aplenty. At its throbbing heart lies a 46CC, single cylinder, two stroke, air-cooled engine. That means two things: 1) you don’t want to leave it sitting still while running for very long, and 2) you need to get some two-stroke oil, or the whole thing will seize and cost you about £250 for a new motor. Now we’ve got the rudimentary motor maintenance thing out of the way, lets get back to the business of fun. And there are few things more fun than throwing up big gobbets of dirt while sliding inexorably sideways towards a tree. Seriously, try it. You’ll like it.
