    Once you’ve made your own kart, try driving it around the world.

    omfg, they should call that website “How to efficiently remove your neighborhood progeny from the gene pool!” There should be some rob zombie playing in the background. All those general designs look like one-way tickets to the emergency room, except for that last metal one… No less so because the engine output shaft isnt connected to anything.

    (insert banjo music here)

    Go carts and kids inevitably crash into things… that one kid is SO gonna get nailed by that 2×4 steering column support in the nads. And I can practically already SEE the bloodstains on the blade of that rusty hand truck!

    Thats awesome, too bad I cant encourage the runts on my block to build stuff like that, I’d totally set up my video camera.
