This car has accompanied me through most of my life. Built with basic manual tools, it was presented at school in 2004 as science fair project and improved it over the years.
First run !
The chassi is almost entirely made out of wood, including chassis, body and fenders.
This car uses the engine and transmission from my old mini-buggy, a few standard car parts and many custom made items.

Forward, idle and reverse gears
Centrifugal clutch for idling when stopped
