Neuroti-Kart: Home-made electric go-kart
Now for an exciting way for electrical engineers the world over to annoy their neighbours on a quiet Sunday morning. After extensive tinkering in his shed, ‘wires99′ created Neuroti-Kart, the home-made electric go-kart. His design goals were to make something ‘electric powered, quiet, fast, capable of doing donuts in my street’. With the video found at design engineer bible TechEBlog, the Neuroti-Kart (the name PsychoKart was taken) is made from an advanced electric DC motor, with four 12V car batteries and a frame constructed from home gas pipes. We assume ‘wires99′ is now starving and sitting in a freezing cold house, but hey, at least he’s got a cool go-kart.
