Nice, I’d love that in big boy size to run around the neighborhood.

You kinda buried the lead with that Arduino bombshell in the video. Okay, back to making stuff…

Not dangerous enough to be an old timey go kart…
I recall my buddy’s ancient gokart that didn’t have any brakes; had an accelerator that would frequently stick wide open; and the only way to stop it was by pulling on a string connected to the sparkplug wire (or by crashing into something).

To begin with, I use the heck out of those plastic razor blades.
Also, I did see this in an auction catalog yesterday. It is not electric, but representative of a class of cars made for kids in the pre-war years. All I can say is that it must be nice…
