    Default 3 Seater Gokart Build for the Kids

    Hi

    Check out my daughter's rock crawling skills. I built this during the lock down and still not 100% finished. I made it so that as they get older I can move and change the seat as they grow and put in a bigger engine but much later on. For now there is a 50cc chain saw with a 64:1 ratio box, should keep them out of trouble unlike me.
    I'm thinking of putting on a DC motor with reverse so they can ride in the yard, I read on the forum you can use a wiper motor.

    Thats really cool.
    Not sure a wiper motor would have enough power to move a gokart with 3 kids in it though...

    Very very nice and nice to see thereís a father still doing this kind of thing. Just let the kids wear helmets. I was working for a air ambulance and got a callout to fetch a kid who rolled his at slow speed but he ended up underneath with severe head injuries.
