Father and Son Go Kart Project
Father and Son (Daughter) Go Kart Project
Those weekends are precious to us
fathers. We have so many things to do. Rake the yard, clean
out the gutters, get the Christmas lights up and then down, burn
the leaves, cut down some old tree…gasp, pant gasp…oh yeah.. and fix
the lawn mower to boot.
After the weekend is finished we are
just plain tired, exhausted and spent.
A little reflection in front of the
fire place, or watching the foot ball game we realize that Jonny, Lisa
and their friends were having a blast playing in the tree house,
pretending there were dragons in the leaf piles and the fire pit.
The realization comes, “How many
weekends am I going to spend ignoring my son and daughter? Isn’t
there something I can do to make us really be a family; one that works
together, that plays together?”
Most of us bond by providing things
for our kids. But that really is not a bonding experience, but
more a give them what they want experience.
The object of having children is to
have them be well rounded contributors to civilization. We want
our children to be intelligent problem solvers. Ones that won’t
balk in the face of challenge, that will eat up problems for breakfast,
and talk about solutions over lunch and have the answer by dinner.
How can we as parents get them to
that point and not spend exorbitant sums of money?
How can we teach them problem solving
skills at home in the following areas:
Internal Combustion Engines
Sewing and Upholstery
Metal Fabrication Techniques
Answer: Home-made Go Kart
Everybody’s eyes light up when the
name “go cart” is mentioned. There is just something
exciting about gokarts. It must be the freedom, or the
exhilaration when driving it, either way your heart starts pumping,
your palms start sweating, and the whole idea becomes captivating.
The hidden benefits of the go kart is
that it makes an instant bond to kids and parents.
The trouble is that most of us know
nothing about go karts. The amount we know and we are undone by
how much we don’t know.
For example, how would I go about
setting up a drive system for a go kart that weighs 400 pounds with
people in it, and matching it up to a 5 horsepower motor?
-What clutch would I use?
-What kind of steering system should I
-How do you set up the go kart so that
it steers well and doesn’t just go straight?
-How do I build a go kart for under
These questions and more keep popping
up, and that go kart idea seems to just fade in the distance…..
