We’ve seen plenty of home-built motorized concoctions over the years, some of which could kill. Although built for plain old fun, there are risks involved that aren’t always worth taking.

Check out the video ahead and you’ll see what we mean. Turbocharged go-karts are awesome, assuming they're non-lethal.
