We've wanted to build a remote control go kart for years. Specifically, our friend Michael had the idea to build a RC go kart after Ike flipped the 670cc Lawn Mower. The goal was to create a remote control system that we could adapt to different projects so we could perform un manned top speed tests. In today's video, we build a remote control go kart with a built Tillotson 212cc engine producing around 15 horsepower. Wanting to test the go kart before the sun went down, we skipped a bunch of safety features and testing, and Ike volunteered to get on it to drive himself around his yard. Instead, the radio controlled go kart went full throttle, accelerating Ike to at least 35MPH in a gas station parking lot and crashing into a curb. We are extremely lucky that no one got hurt and nothing got damaged. From now on, we're adjusting the throttle cable so that max throttle on the remote = barely above idling, more safety features, and testing UN MANNED in a wide open field.
Thanks for Watching!
