First I have to say: Crap you're a tall one! LOL, but you seem to fit nicely (seeing your leg position with the footbox side off)...

Congrats on the first go-cart, you'll have that smile on your face for days. When you looked both ways before crossing back into your driveway I thought for sure you were going to light 'em up! :yes:

Maybe the next video! :devil:

Dave,
It's a great feeling isn't it? I think the first go-cart was actually more exciting than finally graduating. But hey.....don't be afraid to get on it and scare the neighbors.

Thanks guys. It's an awesome feeling.

Rod, that little guys came running out of his house followed by his whole family. He has been watching the build since it started and as soon as he heard it start heart he knew exactly what it was! He came over and repeated over and over, "Mr Hodgkins built a race car! Mr Hodgkins build a race car!!" It was so precious. His whole family was quite excited and everyone had very broad smiles...

Mark I'm close to 6'6" and I was driving without a seat. The Kirkeys and seat belts will get bolted in today and then I'll try getting on the throttle a little bit!

:D
