I am looking for a gokart and i have really been looking at the all new 2008 Tomberlin Crossfire 150. I dont know if it is a good gokart or not. It is only $1799 at Sams Club and it is a great price for a 150cc. I need some advice if it is worth it and if there is any defaults to it. My dad thinks the swing arm will hit the frame but why would they design it like that. So if anyone knows anything about these karts i would love to hear what u think?

For the money you can't beat it. I had an '07 and it treated me well.
The only bad things about it were the shocks (too stiff) and the so called electric choke never really worked right but if you search enough around here you'll see it is a common thing.
I had an electrical issue with mine and I contacted Tomberlin directly because Sams doesn't do any service and they were very helpfull and quick about getting me the parts I needed to fix it.
I believe there are a few reviews on the Crossfire 150R. Do a search in the reviews section.

Right now I'm buggyless. I've got a '01 EZ-GO golf cart -w- a lift kit and some 22" trail wolf tires I take trail riding. It has a rear seat so I can take the wife and kids.

I'm eventually going to get another buggy but I need to save up some cash first. Meanwhile I'm really researching all different buggys. I'm leaning toward the Phoenix 300 or the Joyner 250.
That is unless someone comes out -w- a 450 that's 60" wide :twisted:

The Crossfire 150r is a great buggy and a great price. LOTS of reviews and tips here. As furball posted the shocks are stiff--bone jarring stiff. There are several inexpensive upgrades to fix that. Drive it lots & wear out those tires so you can get some bigger ones for it. All 150 buggies can benefit from a larger set of tires to gain some ground clearance. Personally I like the proportions of 22x10" in the rear and 20x7" in the front and the stock gearing will handle it.

The swingarm will not hit the frame but some owners have had the fuel tank petcock hit the black box on the swingarm. Easy fix--raise the tank on spacers with longer bolts.

Don't wait too long to decide. My Sam's Club only gets the Crossfires in at Xmas time.
