This is a dune buggy or kart if you will I got for a couple hundred and pulled the slow 110cc motor out and found a 4.5hp 36v golf kart motor from gordo that was rusted and not moving! So I cleaned it up and put some new bearings in it and replaced the brush wires. Then I widened the front end and put better suspension all the way around the buggy. I added some cooling holes and a centrifugal fan to the motor. I got a 225amp 50v controller and opened it up to find there is 11 of the 20 mosfets missing. I ordered them and added the gate resistors and cranked the pot for current limiting and WALA!
So I measured the weight on the front wheels and its 175lbs with me in it. The wheelbase is 4 feet. So 4x 175 = 700 ft/lbs at the rear wheels to pull wheelies at a stand still. (as a rough and crude calculation). Cant wait to up the power!
This is a welder from 2 shops over trying it out for the first time! This is in pure fun and nobody got hurt if anyone posts about safety then the mods will be asked to remove such posts from my threads!
