Summary:
Krishant Rupen aged 10 from Auckland wants to build an amphibious go-cart for kids. New Zealand inventor Allan Gibbs has built the Aquada that you can buy for $250,000 but what is there for kids to zoom around on land and water? Nothing out there that kids can buy and build for themselves.Krishant dreams of inventing something that any kid and his Dad can build in their shed at home. However it doesn't prove to be all that easy in reality so Simon Longdill, Chief Engineer from Buckley Systems who developed the Quadski for Gibbs Aquada comes to the rescue. He not only developed the Quadski but has built his own racing car engine. So Simon steps up to help Krishant build a working kid's version of the craft.Always keen to push the boundaries, Krishant has a dream to pimp his craft out with a sound system from Fusion Audio and a flamin' paint job by award winning hotrod painter Steve Levene. Krishant becomes the coolest kid in Bucklands Beach and takes on the Goober Challenge to race Geoff in his car across the Tamaki Estuary.
