I don't think we will show scores, but Robert will have to decide if we list the order that builds came in

Thanks again you guys, I'm blown away by the responses. I'm very new to Facebook, and last night at mid-night along with finding out about this, I also figured out that this site has a page there too. Tonight I will probably put some pictures of my kart on my FB page, I had refrained from doing it till after the results, and also because I had managed to keep this build a secret from my dad, and surprised him with it two weekends ago for the first time.

On another note...dwcopple, I went over your build again, and you are probably the essence of this site. A few here have called what I built unique, but the way you repurposed that old lawn mower was something to be proud of. You are probably two builds away from a. coming up with something truly unique b. honing some fabrication skills and some design experience that will make a huge difference. I know for a fact Desertduler and myself did not get the experience and the equipment/tools to do this stuff overnight....its taken years. I think you have the vision, and the basics to press on with more builds. I mean, you basically have yourself a one of a kind scooter on steroids....21mph....thats really quick in something like that, and no batteries to worry about going dead! And the practicality, size, potential ease of getting in and out of it are remarkable. Keep practicing that welding, read up on ackerman steering angles, chassis and structural design....who knows what could come of that. There is something though to what you did with that old mower frame to be really jazzed about.

Well if I indeed won a tee shirt then I would like to donate my shirt to slidewayz's grandson as he had a hand in building the winning kart, I would like to see a picture of the two with the Alumaflyer wearing their tee shirts. Moderators if you could do this for me I would really appreciate it as this little man will remember the time that he and his grandpa built the winning kart.

Congratulations Slide and Desert you both did a heck of a job! Desert that is a classy thing to do to give you're shirt to his grandson. Voting this year suked, with of all the quality builds it made the decision of who to vote for extremely difficult. Kudos to all the builders.
