This is our second test drive of the new Cap Kart. The first run ended similarly to the first test drive: with a dead MOSFET in the controller. This time we came prepared with a field soldering kit and a less volatile replacement FET. Af...

Okay, so it's not the fastest or most impressive test drive we've ever had. (The kart suffered a[nother] MOSFET failure after a few runs.) But it highlights one of the new features: a custom-built rear axle differential. With this additi...
