Nick soon learnt how to handle his electric go kartOur kids electric go kart was originally developed with a four year old in mind and we feel the final product suits four to nine year olds just fine. Driving the go kart is easy and even four year olds master it almost instantly. It’s not too fast or powerful making it much safer for junior drivers (see our FAQ sheet).

Our kids electric go kart is based on a wooden chassis  A GA Projects electric go kart nears completion


An important design criteria in all our projects is ease of construction and our kids electric go kart is no exception. The chassis is made of wood and we power our go kart with a couple of modified second hand windscreen wiper motors. Electrical systems are simple and require no soldering. We even bundle a free copy of our ‘Understanding Electricity and Basic Electronics’ ebook to help those constructors who do not like working with electrics.

Answers to our most frequently asked questions



Our go karts are electrically powered wooden chassis units designed to be great fun for kids yet cheap and easy to build. Second hand windscreen wiper motors are used to drive the kart and all other parts are readily available from good hardware stores and automotive part suppliers. Our karts can run at 12 or 18 volts the pros and cons of which are discussed within the Construction Manual. A braking system is not required, as wiper motors will not turn once the power is switched off. We employ casters for the front wheels as this simplifies mounting and steering them. This manual only supposes that the constructor has basic handyman skills. We hope the lucky recipient of the go-kart will have as much fun as our kids did (and still do) once it is completed.

How it works - Engines waste considerable amounts of fuel (e.g. when idling, coasting or braking). By using your engines charging system to break down water into highly combustable hydrogen and oxygen much of this wasted energy can be recovered. OHH gas can then be reintroduced to the inlet duct via a PCV type valve. Similar to regenerative braking only more efficient. It works on diesel engines too !!!
