Matt Denton has built a real-life LEGO go-kart that you can actually drive, and unlike his first creation, this one has an electronic differential. As you might have guessed, none of these pieces are from official LEGO sets, but rather Matt used a 3D printer to fabricate them. The long beams that make up the frame of the vehicle weren’t too difficult to print, but the axle piece for the steering column had to be printed in two parts due to their length.
To create a functional LEGO go-kart, Matt needed to really analyze how weight and friction would be distributed. So, he decided to use perpendicular axle connectors that boast proper bearings, including near-hidden metal parts and fasteners to ensure the integrity of the plastic. Let’s face it, this little machine isn’t fast, but just cruising around the neighborhood in something that look as cool as this will most certainly make most people look twice.
