I think it was cool, but there was simply not a lot of updates, pictures, and details. You can have the coolest build in the world, but if you don't know how to tell the story no one will know!
Keep buildin' Trevor!

Congratulations JTSD ! LOL... you know this was a close one, squeaking by with a one vote margin and BTW... I voted for three other people.

Thanks to all the other builders for the sportsmanship and lively posts during the past couple of weeks. It was an exciting finish. See y'all in 2020 !

I had NO idea I would win the Build Off when I joined DIYGK in January 2019!
I just wanted to get my kart running!
Congrats on winning the build off!!!!!

It shows that no matter what your age is, you can still do amazing things. Keep it up

Congratulations @JTSpeedDemon, that rocks. As you mention, lots of updates really help. I learned long ago while attempting to document an ADV motorcycle trip that the journey was what I lived for and if I got a few pics/vids along the way, that was good enough for me. I really respect the time and effort others go through to document their journey, it is a lot of extra work.

Now, onto kart mods........

Yeah, thanks for the encouragement everyone! And kudos ESPECIALLY to gegcorp2012! That was a close one!

It just reoccurred to me that JTSD is only one letter away from PTSD.......

I need to get some more glamor shots of the Hothead today!
