Having built my new CNC machine and thought I had better make something fun with it. I had been asking around for anyone with a Kettler type pedal car and I was offered one for free from a friend !

So I've drawn up the CAD, and we are off again on another video series. I need to get this one done quickly though, ideally before the summer, so my young daughter can get the most out of it.

There are some electrics involved later in the project so there may be questions . . . .

Funnily enough I was talking to a friend about maybe doing that and he showed my the cheap blipper modules on eBay where you can remotely control a set of relays. These could cut power if required and have a 200 m ? range

Iím gearing this to go at a fast jog so hopefully I can keep up, plus there will be an ignition key and isolator on the kart.
