Tesla Roadster, eat your heart out.
If you’ve got that need for speed, but want to keep it off of the city streets, then this custom-built electric go-kart might be right up your alley. With a little tinkering, the electric devil may be capable of speeds as high as 178km/h (110mph). In its current state with its current (low) gearing, however, it tops out at a mere 60km/h (36mph).
In the first video, you’ll get a quick run-through some of the components that went into creating this little pocket-sized racer, and then in the second video, you’ll see them take the go-kart to an empty parking lot, tearing around the corners, and even putting in a little bit of drift for style points. Kudos.
