Default Build Off VOTING - Vote now!

OK folks, VOTING IS OPEN!



It's that time again! Everyone has put down the welder for a minute, and it's time to see who had the coolest build of the last year!

Each year we encourage all members to enter our "build-off competition" in which members log how their progress is coming on their build, and if they finish during the calendar year, they are in the running for "Build of the Year"! We've had some great builds documented over the years and this year is no exception! What a list of great builds!

THANK YOU again to all the folks that help out newbies here on DIYGK. Karting is a fun hobby, and I'm glad when I see someone 'catch the bug' and get excited about building! That person may be next year's build off champ! Who knows!

This should be a list of everyone's qualified entries. If I have added a disqualifying (or missed a qualifying entry) please let me know ASAP.

We had a lot of great entries, so rather than only getting ONE vote, you can vote for your TOP 3 choices.

Take your time on voting. The poll is open for the next TWO weeks. Check out the build logs and see what looks good to you. Results will be released after voting is over!

Voting Guidelines:
Vote for the best build, in your opinion. We like to award points for several categories, including, but not limited to:

Overall design
Difficulty of the build
Uniqueness
Construction quality
Paint
Awesomeness factor

In short, it's a subjective vote, and you get to vote! Weigh the options before voting!

The WINNER will receive full bragging rights! (and a T-shirt if we have your size!).

ENTRANTS: IF YOU CAN EDIT YOUR ENTRY OR POST A 'FINAL' UPDATE ON YOUR BUILD IT HELPS PEOPLE IN THE VOTING

AND NOW, IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER:


Check them out, take you time, mull it over, and give a vote to your "TOP 3" Builds!

I have a really hard time picking... especially because i know how much mental work and physical effort and the arguments and frustration each builder had to work thru from the world or from his or her spouses to accomplish their personal set goals to finish a never finished build

For that WE ARE ALL WINNERS !...... except me .... *because my wife just corrected me*

CONGRATULATIONS ! GOOD JOB TO ALL THAT KEEP THIS HOBBY ALIVE
and THANKS TO THE PEOPLE THAT MAKE THIS SITE POSSIBLE
