As it turns out Matt Denton is not only good at making giant rideable, spider-like robot. He is also well-versed in making go-kart, or oversized LEGO go-kart – to be precise. In his latest video, Denton takes viewers on a tour of how he built a giant LEGO go-kart using 3D printed parts.

This isn’t his first shot at making a XL version of a LEGO go-kart, though. He had previously made one based on an actual LEGO Technic kit from the 80s. However, that one, which he built for his nephew, weren’t even able to fit the little guy who was 6 or 7 years old, let alone Denton himself.

This time, he went all out supersize the build, scaling the print up to 8.43 times. The idea is, this eventual electrically driven go-kart will not only be able to fit his nephew but also a grown man like himself.

The coolest thing about this custom oversized LEGO go-kart is seeing all the familiar LEGO and LEGO Technic elements in their oversized form. Strangely, it looks pretty adorable. No? Maybe it is just me?

In the video posted on April 16, the XXL 3D Printed LEGO Go-Kart is not completed yet. Works have to be done for the drivetrain, brakes and of course, a seat.

Keep going for the video of the build.
