Our go karts are finally back from MIT!! Hilarity ensued when we found various nuts and bolts dropping out of the crates and we attempted to figure out where everything came from.

Charles has kindly shipped all his spare parts from the 2.00summer go kart course so we can continue to work on our EVs without having to order and ship extra stuff to SUTD.

It was a mild let down that our go karts arrived after both the Learning Carnival and the visit by the Solar Car team from Eindhoven – Learning Carnival was something that was organized from 16th-18th of Oct so that we could share with each other what we’ve all done over the summer. For us, a large part of it was the go kart experience that we had in MIT, and so we decided to try to build another go kart in < 4 weeks, so that we had something to show everyone else.

To me, Go Karts and Homemade-Motorized-Things-That-Move are important to everyone (especially engineers) not only because they’re hilarious and utter fun, but because it gives everyone an opportunity to build.

Now that we have our go karts, parts and supplies, and more importantly go-kart knowledge, an annual SUTD Grand Prix might actually become reality. Muahaha.
