Cyclekart progress – June 1st, 2011: axle keys in, brakes working
After shooting that video I dropped the kart off the jack stands and pushed it around a bit, trying out the brakes. Pretty weak sauce, these so-called brakes. I did overbuild the linkage, so I should be able to stand on the brake pedal without fear of anything giving way, so… maybe the brakes will be good enough, just require lots of force to operate. Or, maybe I need to upgrade to some kind of hydraulic system.
