Maybe when you're a few fingers and toes more than 12, you might understand.

That might be just your speed as-is. Use that instead of your wooden gravity-powered contraption. We'd all be relieved if you did.

You know, like rip the heads off GI Joe's as soon as they come out of the package?
Spread all the limbs over the entire yard, and things like that?

You're starting to remind me of a kid I used to know years ago.

...For the life of me I can't remember his name. This wasn't you was it???
That kid was personified as the character "Sid" in Toy Story.

Kinda looks like him, but more like spindles.

Ok, now I really stripped the shaft- in a good way. I sat down, thought, and LIGHTBULB! I took the original stripped bolt and stripped shaft and stripped it all the way through. Now I'm in business.

In other words you cross threaded the bolt in. Hopefully your clutch is in place and secured by the stripped bolt and a washer?

It's like you can see it very clearly Randy.
In other words... YES!

Just be glad a tree or fence post didn't magically appear going almost 40! Don't need to have to have you scrapped off the ground with a shovel.

He's got one of those magic karts.
He won't need roads where he's going.

It broke this morning again just so much self-misalignment and scraping. I'm tired of working on this thing...

You're only 12. You haven't had near enough time on this big blue spinning marble to tire of ANYTHING.

It's your toy, you broke it, NOW GO FIX IT!!!

It's not the end of the world. Stuff happens, life goes on, dust it off and get back on the saddle. Could be worse, could have to build up from scratch, which is even more difficult, but more rewarding.

I bought a jackshaft off eBay and it came in the mail today, so I guess you could say that I made some progress, put the chain ona and stuff. Now I'm just waiting on a torque converter snap ring.

He could destroy an anvil.

If he was my kid............
I would get a new toy and rip it apart immediately... That's where I got a good mechanical education from... Seeing how things work. Mom was cool with it . I got what I wanted to do research on ... After school sometimes I'd go to the restaurant she was a hash slinger at, get a few dollars of her tips go across the street to TG&Y and find my next victim... Tear it to bits in the restaurant
