The objective of this project is to design and fabricate driver compartment of an electric go kart. The main problem is the comfort of the drivers. The scopes identified must consist of cushioned seat and adjustable mechanism.The first stage is did some literature review about the existing go-kart and adjustable mechanism.Current model of go-kart consists of plastic and fixed seat.Hence, this project is to modify the current model of go-kart into a model that is comfort for the user where the driver compartment will be installed with an adjustable and cushioned seat.Follow up with some designing and sketching. During this phase, three designs had been sketch to be as the design concepts.As for each design have their advantages and disadvantages. After done with design and sketch, conceptual process is done and design 3 has been chosen because this design is more advantageous than other two designs.Design 3 is small and the adjustable mechanism is easier to handle. Some modification is done on design 3 where, seat mounting is being added for placing the cushioned seat. Next stage after finalize the design, the project is continued with fabrication process.The adjustable is modified into smaller width according to the design dimension where, both side of the adjustable mechanism is connected with a small angle bar in the middle by welding.While for the seat mounting, a square hollow beam is used.The hollow beam is measured and marked with the correct length and then being cut into the desired length. Drilling is done on the hollow beam for assemble the seat on the seat mount. After that, the square hollow beam is welded on the adjustable mechanism according to the drawing. Finish with the welding, finishing process is done where for this project white paint is used and then the cushioned is assembled with the product. Thus, by finishing this project, the objective of the project is achieved
