Hey dude. I enjoyed your vlog. 😂 😃 You most definitely need to put out more vids! The part at 1:19 is my favorite. You have to most definitely connect with the funny group Bad Friends. Their stuff hella are like David Dobrik mixed with a bit of PewDiePie. They're the dopest group on the planet and they straight up vlog in every vid!
Go check out their YouTube out and give him a like! 👉 #SurpriseBadFriends

I have watched GHPC since they first came on to you tube. and I have come to believe that they are the best builder's on you tube. but these videos giving Sam his start with a channel. and showing people how to build a power wheels kart. proves that they are the greatest of all hands down. bravo guy's.

looks good, there is an easier way to notch a tube with a grinder (for 90 degree joins), Justin Voss made a great video on it. Rotate the tube as shown in this video 90° and make a vertical cut 45° from the centre line of the tube

rthomp03 - 27 dager siden
It would probably be helpful to explain castor, camber, toe, etc. and what effect they will have on steering. You mentioned what castor and camber were, but you left a lot of things unexplained to get it steering correctly. General rule for tutorials: don't assume everyone following along will know about these things just because you already do. Be thorough with your step-by-step instructions. Explain what you're doing, and how you're doing it. Especially something as important as steering, getting it right the first time is preferable to a dangerous trial-and-error approach.
Aside from that, I'm really enjoying this series. Nice to see Sam getting more involved in the videos.

You guys keep mentioning "the kit", you guys are making a Powerwheels DIY kit for sale aren't you?
Or at least a DIY support kit for essential stuffs (brackets guides etc.) that can help make it easier/less time-consuming for someone making their own gas-powered powerwheel at home in their workshop? And sell those essentials at your website? Now don't get me wrong I personally think such a DIY support kit would be very cool. 👍

Theres a simple rule to notching.
Mark 1/3 tube diameter and cut a V from that point to the end of the tube at each edge. Then it only takes a tickle with the grinder to round it out.
So if you're mounting a tube between 2 other tubes, and it 1", add 2/3" to the measurement and notch 1/3" out of each end and it will fit.

I built my kid an electric reverse trike using an electric scooter powertrain and steering was by far the biggest challenge. Steering either works or it doesn't so do your research and do it right.
