Additional FeaturesThis is my first attempt at building an Electric Go-Kart. A buddy of mine gave me the kart frame with a blown gas motor and instead of only spending a hundred to buy a new motor, I decided to spend much more to make it electric... why, I have no idea... but thought it would be a fun project. I like fun projects...
