We take a spin in George Fortin's homemade masterpiece, the all electric Z-Kart. Powered by a DC motor and resting atop a recycled polyethylene frame, the Z-Kart provides eco-friendly karting fun.

      With that kind of a big brain, I'll bet George can really find real estate deals - how can I reach him?
        • 4 Years Ago
        If someone wants to reach me regarding Real Estate or loans, or has questions on the ZKart my email is gfortin@cox.net.

      Solid enginuity George! Way to go.

      Charging Specs Please:

      How much time does it take to charge via 110 & 220 and how much Kwh per 8hrs / 1 month does it consume in electricity?

      Let's get the next version powered by ZeroNet Solar Energy.

      I think he needs to add magnetos to the wheel hubs, kinda like how motorcycles have to generate a charge to the batteries.
