,Age: 11-13 Inspiration: Broken down Power Wheels car Purpose: Fun Significance: This is the most fun project I have built to date. I also somewhat learned how to weld during this project.
The Go Kart was a project my dad and I embarked on after my Power Wheels car could no longer fit me. At 11 years old I was excited to drive and this was my perfect opportunity. Unfortunately due to other projects the Go Kart didn't move for about 2 years, but when it did my neighbor and I spent days racing in the summer heat. This Go Kart was a bumpy ride and could probably be heard from miles away, but it was fun to drive. Unfortunately, I was only able to drive it in my court and the adjacent one to it, but it still provided hours of amusement and was an excellent platform for testing other projects like auto ignition bottle rockets.
