I'm in the midst of my wiring my garage for 220v power. It's been an adventure. Ended up rewiring the whole stinking garage rather than just add a couple of 220 plugs. Stinking projects.

AWD kart?

Anyone ever made/heard/dreamed of a awd kart? I think at some point in the future a bike or sled engine would be fun to put the power to all 4 wheels.
