One of our avid readers (thanks again Steve!) just sent us some pics of this amazing looking large scale RC go kart that is built in Portugal and is now available for sale in the USA. The Oskart is a 1/2 scale RC go kart powered by a huge 33cc Zenoah two stroke engine backed by a polished tuned exhaust system. Just like a full size go kart, the Oskart has no transmission. Instead, it uses a chain drive to connect the clutch to the solid rear axle shaft. The Oskart includes a scale drivers figure that has its arms and legs attached to controls, which are moved via the servos, making it appear that the driver is actually controlling the race kart! Other features include a 775ml fuel tank that lets you run for up to 45 minutes per tank, five body and driver color combinations, multiple tire compound choices including wets, a dual disk brake system, ball bearings throughout and adjustable front caster/camber. It is available in ready to run form or without electronics. Each Oskart is unique and is assigned its own unique serial number. Check out the pics of this sweet machine below and let us know what you think.
