Make your own go kart

Step 10: New Test Video

For ages I have been trying to find somewhere to drive this go kart, and finaly we found this field. It had a wheat crop in it which has just been gathered, and the owner let us drive this go kart on it! This video was a speed run, to see what it's top speed was. We attached a sat nav to it to get a precise speed and it measured 21 mph. I think that's pretty good considering that when it was a moped, it did 45 mph, and all that weight has been added. My mate Jack was holding the camera. It's quite bad quality as it was done on a phone.

At the end of the run I decided to do a hand brake turn, that worked suprisingly well!! Unfortunately you can barely see it on the video due to the poor quality.
