Robert Maddox hosts one of those YouTube channels that you just have to subscribe to. He’s a crazy old man who loves building rocket and jet-powered go karts. Need I say more?
Maddox typically rides his contraptions out on a dry lake bed in Cedarville, CA. Probably for the better that he’s not trying to drive these death traps in public, right?
His most recent creation is the ‘Dragon Kart’. It’s a badass rocket-powered kart that he just debuted in the video below.
Skip ahead to the 2:24 mark in the video if you want to see this thing in action.
Robert Maddox: “Firing up the new dragon kart for the first time and doing a short run. Cedarville California dry lake bed, Warner Mountains.”
He says he’s only taking it for a short ride because he hasn’t installed a seat belt or brakes… That part had me dying of laughter. He brushes off the fact that two most important safety features so easily.
He then says later on in the video that it would probably better if somebody else was with him, but no matter. He’s still gonna send it.
