We’re always looking up creative ways people use plastics in their home projects and one application we stumbled on was the “PVC Karts”. These are “Go Kart” type vehicles, usually with an electrical or pedal motor, that are made out of a frame of PVC piping. The elaborate designs these inventors can make out of what is essentially just pipe and joiners is awesome! What’s even better is that the DIY community involved in these karts seem so willing to share their information and designs. We found a Youtube video on one such kart that seems to rip along really quick and also a few websites we’ve found that seem to have useful information.

As always when we share information like this we have to put the disclaimer that we are not recommending or endorsing any of these applications. They could be unsafe, so always, do your own research and build at your own risk.
