Hey guys I am new to this forum but not to fabrication.
I am in So Cal and have been in a shop class for 3 years now and 4 next year! But anyways for our final project my teacher does go karts (gravity not so great ones). so following in my brothers foot steps I had to make some bigger more awesome looking design and final product.
I'm guessing you are in High School. I like that you can work on projects in school like this. I think you will really benefit from some of the guys and gals on this forum as they have a wealth of information and some very technical write ups.
Nice start being young. Learn GOOD habits from GOOD teachers and never stop learning or asking.
