I can hear the conversation now... "we understand that you were trying to provide your child with entertainment on a budget, however, Child Protective Services still considers 3 sticks of wood screwed together, slack rope for steering, and a contraption with no brake system definitely falls within our 'child endangerment' category' of offenses"... lol

I wonder how long tha drill will last....

They're not really designed for continuous full-speed use over longer periods.
