The Arustocrats participate in the Power Racing Series, a budget racing series where teams must get creative to build the fastest electric go-kart possible under a $500 limit and conforming to the original size/ridiculousness of a children's ride on toy. We have 3 go-karts that participate, and their individual designs couldn't be much different. From golf-cart parts on craigslist, to internet scooter parts, to bicycle parts, these franken-cars go fast but break fast too.
The Arustocrats are a makerspace without a makerspace; we call ourselves a Maker Collective. We use whatever workshops we have access to (TechShop, our workplaces, shared warehouse space, our dining room table) to collaborate on various projects, but collectively we’re focused on the Power Racing Series. We have won 2 of the 3 trophies you can win in PRS, and we’re hoping this year we’ll round out our collection.
