Calling all wheel freaks, go-kart aficionados, bike builders, skateboard modders, soapbox specialists, trailer tinkerers, and vehicle hackers! Wanna get published in MAKE magazine? Here’s your chance! We’ve just extended the deadline for our Karts and Wheels contest by a week. The new deadline is Friday, January 24th, which gives you two extra weekends to get in your entry.

The theme for the upcoming MAKE Volume 26 is “Karts and Wheels,” and we know you’ve got some great builds that fit the bill. Go-karts, electric bikes and scooters, biodiesel buggies, powered skateboards, self-balancing whatsits, illegal soapbox derby cars, taco trikes, high-tech chariots — if it’s got wheels and carries a person, we want to see it.

The rules are simple:

1. Come up with a cool, original go-kart or alt wheels project fitting the Volume 26 theme.
2. Document your build step-by-step with clear instructions and photos, then share it on Make: Projects.
3. Send an email to wheels@makeprojects.com with a link to your Make: Projects entry when you’re done. Easy!

The editors of MAKE will then pick the best project, polish it up, and publish it in MAKE Volume 26. Entries will be judged on the quality of the documentation as well as the originality/coolness of the project.

Show us what you make!
