Just read the comic at the bottom... That'll explain.
About this creation
After racing a go-kart for the first time at Laguna Seca Raceway, I was inspired to replicate it in LEGO®'s. This is one of my best MOCs, being proportional to figs, extremely detailed, and filled with interesting techniques. It is based more off of a fun-fair kart than a professional kart, having a bumper running around the perimeter. To see how to "steal" a go-kart, scroll to the bottom of the page. Please review, and thanks for looking!
The go-kart with a fig.
Side view. Try to look for some of detail, like the engine, the side bumpers, and the number 2.
Back view. This shot makes it look most like a fun-fair kart: being a flat, wide surface of gnarly engine details, with a little person sticking out of it.
Engine detail. Notice the exhaust pipe and the gas nozzle.
One of the most distinguishable features of a go-kart: the air intake.
Here is the short comic I made illustrating my go-karting experience at Laguna Seca. If you can't see the text too well, go ahead and click on the comic to blow it up.
As you'll see...
I forgot to pay! With the booth operator cramming endless information and safety gear into my face, and the mere pleasure of driving the fine machine, it was too much — just too much for me to have any room for remembering about paying! But don't get me wrong; I had all intentions of paying. I'm not some carnival booth robber. I hope you enjoyed both the MOC and the comic!
Your kart is really nice and I especially like the detail of the engine. I made a Go-Kart but it is much more basic than yours, take a look if you like. How many bricks did you use cause I used 17 to mass produce it.

be the way, nice collection of cars, i attempted to make a nice mini-fig scale car, but failed every time, how do you do it?
Well, I have a "secret recipe" for making the main body that I apply to all my 4-wides. Then, I tweak the hood, lights, rims, and other such details to make it look like a specific car. Here's a hint: I use the same chassis for every 4-wide. I'm thinking about posting a "4-wide minifig cars guide," to share my method.
hey, i am going down to portland next week, i might drive by the Portland Intl. Raceway, i can try to snap a pic with my phone and put it on mocpages (my homepage). be the way, nice collection of cars, i attempted to make a nice mini-fig scale car, but failed every time, how do you do it?
Very nice work, on both the MOC and the comic, as the guys already mentioned; too detailed for the scale, which is good.. fantastic, my only little point that the seat seems a bit high, need to be one plate lower, but this's nothing in front of this great work... keep building >>> peace.. Firas
