Driving to work in a crowded city sucks. Traffic sucks. Finding parking sucks. But with a fifth-scale replica of a Jaguar XK120 that’s small enough to squeeze inside an elevator, suddenly you’re not limited to just driving on roads, or finding parking in a busy garage.
Tearing through your town in a full-size replica of the tank-like Batmobile that Batman drives in the Arkham Knight game is sure to get you pulled over in no time. But a smaller go-kart version of that same Batmobile? Your local police might just ask to take it for a spin.
Every child should grow up with a little wooden red wagon, but Wishbone Design Studio has found a way to take the classic toy from being just a parent-powered pickup truck, to a gravity-powered go-kart that lets kids take the wheel as they careen down hills.
You can pretend it’s for your kids, but over on Make they’ve posted a step-by-step breakdown on how to build this adult-friendly wooden go-kart. It’s powered by nothing but a pair of 36-volt cordless drills, but surprisingly they’re more than powerful enough for even grownups to take a ride.
At one time it was best known for those compact folding scooters embraced by tweens a few years back, but nowadays Razor is making a new name for itself with electric ride-on toys that seem more exciting than getting your drivers license. If the Crazy Cart was any indication, Razor's new Power Rider Tricycle will be…
Mario Kart just might be the funnest video game in the entire world. Only the soulless can't find enjoyment in go kart racing with super fast Mushroom speed, red shells and Nintendo characters. So you can imagine the even more ridiculous levels of fun you can have if you turned Mario Kart into a real life race against…
Razor can be as proud as they want for making scooters cool again, but what the company will really go down in history for is this creation: a go-kart called the Crazy Cart that turns anyone at the wheel into a master drifter.
Power Wheels? Yeah right. The real upper-class twerps set their sights a little higher, and pester hedge-fund manager parents for something along this lines of this kids-only Porsche. "It's oooooonly $900. Pretty please?"
On the BBC show Top Gear, host Jeremy Clarkson showed off a car so damn tiny that it hurts to ride it. Or well, it looks pretty painful at least. Called the P45, the car is more like a go kart than a real car but it's cute in a ridiculous way. The helmet serves as a roof and windshield, the armor he wears while…
It may not drive very fast (yet!), but this awesome go-kart, which can hold a grown child and seemingly also an adult, is definitely cool. It's a veritable lego chariot!
13-year-old Brit Tim Parker was named the Fastest Kid in the World, earlier this month, at the Kent-based (and unfortunately named) HPV Championships—which, in this case, stands for Human Powered Vehicle.
Take a serious inventory of your financial situation right now, because you may just have to have this jet-engine powered custom-crafted go-kart.
Remember the Chibikart—that awesome, Mario-inspired go-kart built by MIT student Charles Guan? We loved it in an only-an-MIT-student-could-come-up-with-something-this-sweet sort of way. Luckily for us, Guan has just polished off the finishing touches on a newer, more accessible design that he says can be built even…
