I want to build an electric go kart, but my main problem has been choosing what kind of motor to use, and the batteries. Answered

The kart isnt a very high end project, its just been on my mind for a while and i am making the leap from thinking to building, i was just wondering what kind of motor to use, i gues it would be a power to price type thing, as well as the power source to use with it.

i wanted to do this also but my space got in the way so you might want to figure out what you want to do with it you can't ride on sidewalks it has to be street legal to be on the street (blinkers and such) and you need a valid drivers license
