Watch this video featuring Todd Barricklow building his pedal-powered hot rod for the impending Death Defying Pedal Car Figure 8 Racing event at Bay Area Maker Faire in May. I especially appreciate his comment on the process of building and making, and the mistakes we make along the way:
Oh I did that wrong… Plus, I like to point out that it’s this whole process that is the fun part. It’s not ‘Oh I did it wrong and I have to do it over again.’ It’s ‘Oh I did it wrong and I get to do it again! I get to put this wheel on again!’
Right on Todd! I can’t wait to see this and other pedal-boxcar contraptions at Maker Faire. Enter your racer here to take part in this competition.
