I put two motors face to face reversing one of them. 3 batteries and two controllers where the stock batteries and controller went. One last battery on the rack over the rear wheel.The vehicle is close to stock looks and has a low center of gravity. It can climb a very steep hill with a 250 pound rider. The scooter and parts came from all the dumped Vego scooters I came across in the last few months. It doesn't go much faster than a stock Vego 600 but the point was hill climbing and reliability.
