Introduction: Lego Go-cart

This is a small go-cart i made out of lego. Its great to give as little presents for christmas or a birthday.

Step 1: Parts

you will need:

1 2x1 90 degree thinger
1 seat
2 2x1 wedges
1 steering wheel
4 small tires
1 4x1 flat
1 2x2 wedge
1 small chassis
your favorite lego man

Step 2: Wheels and Chassis

put all four wheels on the chassis (duh)

Step 3: Steering and Seat

put the steering wheel infront of the seat (duh)

Step 4: Aerodynamics

Put the two wedges beside the seat, and one infront of the steering wheel.

Step 5: Spoiler Application

put the thinger, (i dont know the name of it), not imediatly behind the seat but one more. Put the flat 2x1 on it, and tilt slightly.

Step 6: Done

Now be creative, make another and race them, make a jump, make a stop-motion video (please post if you do). thanks for your time.

You spell the word "stuff" like you haven't been in school... :D But seriously, some Lego projects are rather elaborate..

If you didn't base it off of Mario Cart 64 this looks almost exactly the same it's awesome! :) I might build.

nice cart ;) but the 90 degrees should be 45 degrees :P

author
bumpus (author)altaria19932008-02-01

it goes to 90 degrees but we position it at 45 or 50 degrees

Really cool Instructable. If I can get the pieces for the bottom part (wheels and stuff) I'm going to try this. Awesome job! +1 rating. (added to favorites)

bumpus (author)GorillazMiko2008-01-31

author
GorillazMiko (author)bumpus2008-01-31

I can't figure out what that piece is called.

author
bumpus (author)GorillazMiko2008-01-31

try, small chassis that might work. its an older piece so it could be harder to find

author
GorillazMiko (author)bumpus2008-01-31

Tried it earlier. Didn't work.
