Default 6.5HP Cooler Racer.

I wanted to share a few pictures of the Cooler Racer that me and the family built. Some people have said whats the purpose. There is no real purpose but I do know that my kids enjoyed building it and are so proud.

It's a little different alright. One of the handles under the steering wheel looks like the throttle. The other is for brakes? One picture shows something that looks like a rotor on the rear axle. How do you manage to steer and operate the handles at the same time?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

The handles are attached to the steering shaft so when you turn the handles turn with you. The rotor on the rear is for the brakes.

Nicely done. What's the purpose?? Who cares!! The kids had some good quality time with you and learned a lot in the process. That's all the purpose anyone needs.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

That's great. Anything that get's kids learning how to actually make something, as opposed to buying everything, is a good thing. I gotta say it looks fun too. My garden isn't big enough though

Very nicely done Robert. If you and your kids enjoyed it, that is all that matters. They should be proud. Maybe the rims could use some yellow paint, or maybe not.

A new version of the old go karts. Who needs a purpose, they were fun to drive then, and now. Nice job.
