Hi Adrian, yes we missed you. There are some good photos on the Facebook page.
If you can keep up a build post on this forum I know that everybody will be keen to follow it. Cheers.

Another great video Marek. Keep them coming.  And yes my vote is additional raw footage will surely be of interest.

Bugatti Helmet cam done. ERA helmet cam will come tonight. (P.S It is technically in 4k so make sure the resolution is turned up ;))

Great Marek !. It captures just how much fun can be had with a relatively low- cost, low-speed CycleKart.

Well, it just makes me even more sorry for missing the day. Did I see a bare chassis? Is it a new build coming on from a new member?

The resolution might be a bit lower but the quality is still there, excellent work.
Just out of interest Marek, how did you find the differences if any between driving the Bugatti and the ERA?

They handle very differently and have a very different driving experience. I will list some of the characteristics and say which kart I preferred for that feature and then will give a summary of the two karts. (And I'll make sure I am not bias)
Stability: ERA
Acceleration: Bugatti
Steering: Bugatti
Braking: ERA
Fun: Equally fun
Driving comfort: ERA
Most spacious: Bugatti

ERA: Beautiful CycleKart, Very comfortable and because the seat is narrow you feel more connected with the kart. The pedals are very soft to press and are larger. No large brake issues. Turning requires more force but doesn't require much rotation. Great fun to drive and thank you Chris for letting me have a go!

Bugatti: Beautiful CycleKart, Comfortable seat but because it is wider you slide around when driving creating a more raw driving experience. The pedals require more pressure to press which I like. Brakes work great when cool but heat up quickly. Steering is easy and doesn't require much force. More rotation is needed to get round the corners but this is by no means uncomfortable. It is overall my favourite CycleKart that I have driven so far.

I hope this has helped :)
