Shaq -- Go-Karting Into Retirement

6/6/2011 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shaq got a head start on his retirement -- the 7'1" NBA legend wedged himself into a tiny go-kart in Tennessee recently ... and sped around a BADASS race track with his girlfriend Hoopz.

It's just like that episode of "The Simpsons" where Nelson laughs at the tall guy in the tiny car -- not that we think Shaq looks ridiculous or anything ...

joey _ I love TMZ 'til ya piss me off!    

Yeah, it must be rough............And don't give me this crap that he worked hard for it. Most of us work our asses off no matter what, w/o perks because we were not as fortunate to have a natural talent for something we love. I don't want to hear a complaint uttered from his mouth! I was a single mom, who had 2 major surgeries in less than 6 months and could only split the 6 month disability up to cover part of each one and then go gack to work early. other than that< I'm not bitter! :)

Grow the EFF up and take care of your kids instead of going to amusement parks with Flava Flav's sloppy seconds.

parts for go kart    

Go Kart Kits make a great project if you are buying one to build ago kart to your own specs. If you are buying a
go-kart kit to savemoney then you are probably better off buying a complete ready to rungo kart as buying new cheap
go kart kits and the engine, clutch etc and payingshipping on all of them will work out about the same price if you
know where to shop.
