Many current Fomula 1 drivers went through KF2 and KF1 kart competitions. Unlike ordinary karts, these high end machines have water cooled engines and the radiators really seem to fit the karts very well.
About this creation
The steering wheel is fully functional. One can also pump the break and gass pedals (they are rugged enough) and the wheels spin :-).
The brake disk on the rear axle can be moved inboard, I am beginning to suspect that it actually looks better this way but do not feel like reworking the instructions.
The model is also easy to modify into an air cooled engine kart.

Nice work getting steering on it as well :-)

Great looking kart - with working steering?
Took me a week before I hit on a reliable arrangement that did not look overly complicated. Almost gave up at one point.

Nice to see there is still life in older sets.
Well it's my only Lego set so I want to get as much mileage as possible from it :-). I still have a few more ideas in my sketch book but too little time, so I might be reminding people of 7347 well into 2020's. The more I work with it, the more I feel that it really scores high on "MOCability".
