Forget that roll bar monstrosity you're constructing and just get a helmet and maybe some chest, knees and elbow padding ('karting armor') instead. Will the missus agree though?

I think the common acronym for the wife is SWMBO...

She Who Must Be Obeyed. Sheesh, guess it's a regional colloquialism--everywhere but White Settlement, Texas!

I do not believe in that nonsense. Eph 5:22.

The kart stopped on one of these turns so I figured it was either out of gas or starving for oil and that it cut off. I hopped off and with one hand on the rear bumper I started it like I usually do... Except I didn't realize the throttle had not returned all the way.

Bwaaaaaaaaahhhhhh went the cart and I had to hang on because the **** thing was pointing first at the neighbors new van and then at their house.... And my daughters asking me "are you ok dad?", and I'm like ... "Uh yeah I'm fine- no problem"... Meanwhile I'm leaving patches of skin all over the road cause it's doing donuts and dragging me behind it.

I ran the cart into a tree and quickly hit the kill switch... (mental note it might be good to have an extra one mounted on the back of the cart).

Anyhoo the real moral of the story is that generic brand disinfectant lidocaine spray for scrapes that supposed to numb everything- really doesn't work at all. It should be labeled "Canned Hate" cuz that's what it feels like when you spray it on fresh road rash. There's some vile chemist out there secretly giggling himself to sleep thinking about all the idiots like me who believed the lies printed on the label.

Oh no, something similar happens with my old kart. I started it and it took off like that! Ran into the trailer = bent spindles, anyways
