Electric motors in karts: A Simple Guide
  By: nedfunnell @ DIY Go Karts - Forum
Filed Under: Go Kart -

To start: Electric motors- AC vs. DC
I'll just put this plainly- you can't use an AC motor in a go-kart. Sure, it would be technically possible, and some electric cars use AC motors, but those are with $10k control systems. The reason is that AC is different from AC. AC stands for 'Alternating Current" and is what comes out of your wall socket. It's used because it transmits long distances better along wires (from the power plant to you) and doesn't electrocute people quite so badly. DC stands for 'Direct Current' and is what comes out of a battery. It's plain electricity, and it's what you want to use for a go kart. 

To get more technical, AC is called 'alternating' because the polarity (the + and -) reverses- in the AC in your house, it happens 60 times per second. An AC motor needs this. Now, it is possible to make AC out of DC. Most people have seen inverters, which you can plug into you car's cigarette lighter and then plug in a laptop, blender, whatever. Why not just use one of those?

The answer is current, and power. For a good electric go-kart, your power demands are going to be around watts or more. watt inverters are available, but they wouldn't work- why not? Because of surge current. An electric motor is an 'inductive' load. Have you ever seen your kitchen lights dim when the refrigerator or microwave comes on? That's because those are both inductive loads, and inductive loads require a TON of power to start. Say some electric motor might need watts when its running- to start under load (like a go-kart does) it might need or watts to start. Your watts kart motor starting under load might need watts. Go price a watter inverter. Yeah, you don't want to do that. You might think that maybe you can make it work even though some people say it's a bad idea- trust me, I'm one of those people who chases down bad ideas to see what will happen. Don't even bother. 

So to be clear, you can't reasonably use any AC motor in a kart unless you want to go no further than your longest extension cord. That means don't bother with any motor marked AC or which comes out of a washing machine, belt sander, or anything that plugs in to the wall. There are two exceptions to this: treadmills and really loud power tools. Most treadmills use a 90v DC motor- the treadmill contains a rectifier which converts the AC to DC. Loud power tools like angle grinders and circular saws use a motor called a 'universal motors' which can operate on either AC or DC. 

I wouldn't use either a treadmill or universal motor either. Why not? They are made for 90 to volts (in the US) and not very powerful. While a treadmill motor might seem like it's powerful, consider that you're going to have to carry around at least seven batteries (of car battery size) to get enough voltage and power. It's the same as with the inverter- technically possible, but as a DIY go-kart maker, it's not what you want. 

OK, that's all bad news. What's the good news? Well, there are plenty of DC electric go cart motors out there perfect for go-karts. What should you look for in a DC electric go cart motors?

1. Low voltage. The lower the voltage, the fewer batteries you have to carry around. Also, if the rated voltage is lower, you can overvolt the motor, which gives you more power. Say you get a 24v motor- you could run it on 36v and get a lot more power. Could you run it on 48v or 72v? Yes but for a very short time. 48v is probably the limit for a 24v motor (double is the rule of thumb for the limit) Why? Well, putting that extra voltage in a electric go cart motor causes extra current to flow, which is where your power comes from. This is a problem because the more current that flows, the hotter the motor gets- and when it gets too hot, it will burn up, explode, and leave you standed. 

What happens is that the insulation in the electric go cart motor is rated for a certain lifetime (say 20 years) at a low temperature. If you double that temperature, that rating may drop to say, 1 year. If you get it really, really hot, it might fry in ten seconds. Don't overheat your motors. 

You could do a 12v motor at 18v or 24v. You could do a 24v motor at 36 or 48v. You could do a 36v motor at 48v. I wouldn't put more than 48v in a kart for two reasons: weight (batteries are heavy, and 4 12v batteries is about as much as you want to carry around) and safety. 48v is high voltage for DC. A person with dry fingers can touch both terminals of a 12v battery and (probably) not fry themselves. However, do it with v house voltage, and you'll get a nasty shock. That's because it takes a certain amount of voltage to overcome your body (especially your skin) resistance. Once there's enough voltage to overcome that resistance, you're being electrocuted. It only takes of one amp to stop your heart, and any battery will do that easily. If you're going to make an electric go kart, you need to educate yourself on electricity safety. I won't write that book here, but go read up on it- and don't put more than 48v in a kart unless you've had technician-level training. (Note: I'm not saying 48v is 'safe', but neither are go-karts)

Okay, safety lecture over. 

Where can you find good motors for electric go karts? 

D&D Motor Systems, Inc!!

The last thing I'll talk about with electric motors is their power ratings. There are two important things you need to know- electric motors are rated for continous power, meaning they can make that power all day, all night, for years on end. Gas engines are rated on instantaneous power, which is how much than can produce for a moment. Secondly, electric motors produce maximum torque (the force with which it spins the wheels) at zero RPM. Have you ever ridden a two-stroke dirtbike? All the power comes around rpm, so you have to wait for the engine to get up to speed, THEN you get power. Electric motors are the opposite- you get all your acceration at the very start, and it tapers off linearly as you speed up. This makes for very fun take-offs if your batteries, controller, and motor are up to it.

What this means is that you have to think about electric power ratings differently. A Harbor Freight HP gas motor might be fun, but a HP electric motor is nearly watts (W = 1HP) and will rip your face off and melt your batteries. Sweet. You can use much smaller HP rated electric motor than you would a gas motor, and have the same amount of fun. 

So, how do you throttle an electric motor? You have three options: on/off control (likely to fry something), progressive on/off control with multiple batteries, and a controller. On/off control is where you just have a big switch (or more likely, a big relay or contactor) and you get full power as soon as your throw the switch. I wouldn't recommend this, as the surge power phenomenon which I mention above means that you're switching on a LARGE amount of current all at once, and quite frequently what this will do is actually weld the contacts of your switch in the closed position, which now means that you're sitting on a kart which is at full throttle and won't turn off. I know a person who tried something like this on an electric motorcycle and has the scars to prove it. Unless it's small motor and big big switch, I'd avoid this. 

How about progressive on/off control? Simply, this means that you are switching on your batteries one at a time. Say you're running a 24v motor, and overvolting it to 36v. You'll have three 12v batteries, most likely. What you'll do is have three switches (relays). One will switch on the first 12v battery. The second will switch on both the first and second, giving you 24v. The last will switch all three batteries into the circuit, giving you full power. This is much less likely to kill you as long as you wire everything up right. I won't draw up a diagram for you, but there are some out there to look up. I'll warn you that if you just draw one up, it's easy to wire things up such that you are dead-shorting a battery, which could weld your contacts cause the battery to explode if you are unable to break the circuit. Be careful. Be careful with this because your first battery to be switched on is going to drain much faster than your last battery. You will need to charge your batteries individually (not in series) and stop driving immediately when your performance with the first battery [/i]only[/i] starts to decline. You will permanently damage your batteries if you over-discharge them. 

Lastly, you can use a controller. This is the best option, and predictably the most expensive. Your best bet is a golf cart controller. They are made for duty like this and don't require a special radio input like a brushless controller does (just a potentiometer, which is a simple electronic component). These can be had on ebay, and the brand you're likely to have luck with is Curtis. Do your research on your controller and make sure it's for a PMDC motor (Permanent Magnet, Direct Current) If it's for a series motor, that's OK (and series motors are OK to use) but you'll have to study the wiring diagram carefully and read up to hook everything up properly. 

You can also find electric bike and scooter controllers, but these are likely to be too small to use for a 'fun' kart unless you're making something for your eight-year-old that weighs 60lb.

Lastly, you can get motor controllers for combat robots from the same site I linked to for the motors. These are a good option, but expensive again and require a home-made throttle, because they're meant to interface with a radio. This would be a good option if you found a cheap big DC motor and don't mind spending some $$$ to get to use it. 

You may not overvolt controllers. The max nominal rating is the max rating, and that's it. A controller can be instantly destroyed if its voltage rating is exceeded, even more a moment. Manufacturers build in a little bit of leeway because a 24v battery bank will be more like 28v when it's fresh off of the charger, but the rated voltage is all you can use.

The last thing I'll talk about is batteries.

Unless you're more advanced than someone who needs the info in this post, you're going to use lead-acid batteries. This is the same technology as a car battery. Don't use car batteries, though, because they're the wrong type. There are two kind of batteries here- starting batteries and deep-discharge batteries. A car battery has to supply an enormous amount of current for about three seconds when you start the car, then spends the rest of its life either being charged by the alternator, or supplying a microscopic amount of current to keep your car radio presets in memory. Car batteries are built for this duty, and if you try to use them on a kart, you'll have fun for about ten minutes, then the batteries will die- and not just being discharged, they'll be permanently damaged. Don't try this unless you want to be disappointed or will be happy with a short-lived, expensive project. If you've got a stack of car batteries you could use them for testing, but that's about it. Also, car batteries contain liquid sulfuric acid, which can spill out more easily than you think. If it gets on you, it will make you go blind, burn you, refinance your mortgage at 10%, key your car, and punch you in the gut. Don't mess with acid.

By contrast, you want to be able to ride your cart for, say, minutes drawing a moderate amount of current the whole time. For this, you need a deep-discharge battery. The only car batteries that are good for this are Optima Yellowtop or Bluetop batteries, or similar. They don't have liquid acid inside and are made for deep discharge. These are great batteries to use if you can afford them. You can find other lead-acid batteries called AGM, or Absorbed Glass Mat. These are like sealed lead acid (see below) except they electrolyte (acid) is absorbed up in fiberglass mats inside the battery, making them shock resistant. AGMs are typically high quality and high cost.

Also, you can use a sealed lead acid battery (SLA). These are great, and probably what I'd use. You'll be tempted to buy the small ones- they come in tiny, affordable sizes that are complete crap for kart use. You want the big ones. At minimum, 12Ah for a small scooter-motor kart ridden by your eight year old, and Ah or more for bigger karts. More battery is better 99% of the time. Until you get to the point that your kart has so much battery that it weighs the same as a brontosaurus, more batteries are going to help.

Why? Because of current, again. Karts require a lot of current. Small batteries put out a small amount of current happily, or a large amount of current, and then die immediately. If you don't want to be limited in performance and killing your batteries dead, use big batteries. The same way that overdischarging your batteries by running them completely flat will kill them dead, overdischarging by asking for too much current at once will quickly kill them. 

On top of that, asking for lots of current will reduce how long you can ride- because of something called the Peukert effect, drawing a lot of power from a battery effectively reduces how long it will last. An SLA battery is generally rated at a hour discharge rate. So it may have 18Ah of juice in it but only if you ask for it slowly over 20 hours. If you ask for all of its juice in 30 minutes, you may only really get 10Ah out of it. (I pulled that number out of thin air). It's a pretty significant effect, though. 

Okay, what are Ah? Ah stands for Amp-hours. If a battery is rated at 18Ah, it can put out one amp for 18 hours, or if you ignore the Peukert effect I just explained, 18 amps for one hour. Or 9 amps for 2 hours. Get it? You might also see batteries rated by 'RC' or Reserve Capacity. This is how many minutes the batteries will last at 25A discharge (that is, if your alternator gives out and you need your headlights and engine control unit). You can convert RC to Ah with simple math- if you're embarking on an electric kart build, figuring that one out should be something you can do.

What about CCA and CA? These are not ratings of how long a battery will last, or ratings that you will see on batteries that you want to use in a kart. Note above where I talked about starting batteries vs. deep discharge batteries. CCA stands for 'Cold Cranking Amps' and is a measure of how much current a battery can put put for just an instant when it's cold. (CA is the same thing, but not as cold- cold affect batteries) Generally, only starting batteries are rated for CCA or CA. There are some dual-use batteries that might be rated for CCA and still be deep-discharge, but these are more expensive and you can do better with a properly-sized deep-discharge battery. Big wheelchair batteries are super for most karts.

How do you charge your batteries? I'd recommend getting several normal 12v car battery chargers and charging each battery that way, or using one and doing each battery after the last. (That takes forever) If you can find one or afford one, a golf cart battery charger that matches your voltage is the best thing. 

Some basic stuff to round it out:
Wiring something in parallel means + to +, - to -. You'll get the same voltage, but more current and capacity. 
Wiring something in series mean + to -, and then you take your power off of the other + and -. You get more voltage (it adds) but no extra current or capacity.

Current measure how much electricity is flowing, like the rate of water through a pipe. Current is measured in amps.

Voltage measures how much electrical 'force' there is, like the pressure of water in a pipe. Voltage is measured in volts.

Power is a combination of the two, and is like measuring both- how much water is flowing through the pipe and with how much force. Power is measured in watts, and volts times amps equals watts. You can also go backwards- a watt motor at 24v will need W divided by 24V = A theoretically but in practice will need more, due to efficiency losses. 70% is a fair estimate for motor efficiency, so really it'd be around divided 70% () = A.

Okay, that's a good starting point for what you need to know for electric power systems on karts.

So you want to make a fun electric go-kart? Inclined to do overkill? Here's your recipe, pre-overkilled:

Get an electric golf cart motor, it will probably be 36v rated and lots of power. Get a 48v-rated golf cart controller and four Optima Yellowtop batteries. Strap this all to a frame of your preferred format and go have fun. 

Want to make a fun little electric kart for your kid that's outgrown his powerwheels? (Or are you skinny?) Get one of those W scooter motors and run it at 36V instead of 24V, and use the 18Ah SLAs that are common for wheelchairs. 

There you go. Go for it and make some cool electric karts. Post pics.

Newest Go-Kart Race Track: Inside The Local Mall?
  By: AOL Autos Staff
Filed Under: Go Kart -

Having trouble finding an open parking space at your local shopping mall? Here's one way to solve that problem with a electric go kart with go cart motors.

Starting from the road outside, two men simply drove the electric go kart through the parking lot and then proceeded inside the Destiny USA mall in Syracuse, New York, at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. There's a bit of a catch – Bob Congel and Bruce Kenan own the place.

In a promotional stunt, the video above shows them both whipping through the semi-closed mall, in some cases, while onlookers stand aside, making a pit stop in the venue's food court for a beverage and a fender bender or two.

Their goal was to promote high-performance electric go cart motors store Pole Position Raceway, which recently opened in Destiny. Pole Position, an electric go kart company, has eight locations throughout the country, and intends to open more soon, including one slated to open in St. Louis.

The company used electric go cart motors so that it can eschew running traditional gas engines inside. "From a competition standpoint, our high-performance electric go karts accelerate quicker and handle better than any other indoor competition kart on the planet" the company said in a written statement on its website. An electric go kart is installed with go cart motors that provide way more torque than a comparable gas model. MSD

If you can soup up a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle(EV), what features would you want? For some fleet managers, turning plug-in hybrids into a source for powering up construction tools or buildings during a blackout is high on the list.


That’ why Pacific Gas & Electric Co. has been helping VIA Motors to convert new General Motors trucks into plug-in hybrids with the ability to export a large amount of power. The utility, the largest in California, envisions sending a bunch of these trucks into the field for routine maintenance work and to deal with emergencies. The amount of exportable power here will be large enough to run hydraulic lifts to send workers up the powerlines to do repairs or serve as backup power for homes while workers fix faulty circuits or transformers, said Dave Meisel, director of transportation services at PG&E. (EV motors)

One club on campus is focusing on helping the environment by making electrical vehicles to promote clean and renewable fuel alternatives.go cart motors | electric buggy motor | electric go kart | electric dune buggy motor

The University's Motor Sports Club is a student-run organization in which students can get hands-on experience with the latest technology and a chance to race electric go karts.

The club has been around since and has 20 students on roster.

Anthony Palumbo, adviser of the University's Motor Sports Club, said getting the experience of the reality-based program is something that cannot be learned in the classroom.

"One thing about motor sports above all other sports is that it's not only athletics participating, but people who can put stuff together with electronics," Palumbo said. "The beauty of the Motor Sports Club is that it's open to anybody with any major because the motor sports enterprise can utilize the experience of all majors."

The organization's program is funded by members, donations and marketing partners. (electric go kart)

"Last year we generated almost $20, of brand new money that did not come out of students' tuition," Palumbo said. "That money was used to buy and build the latest electric vehicle technology. We have state of the art technology here and my students get that experience."

President of the University's Motor Sports Club, Spencer Lee, said the program has recently converted into more of an environmental sustainability club.

"Last year was the year that we converted over to the electric go karts," Lee said. "Before we ran our carts on gas and ethanol."

Lee said there is a race called the Electrical Vehicle Grand Prix in Indianapolis the week after finals, which the club plans to complete in with their electric go kart. The go kart electric motors have more torque than there gas counterparts.

"What makes us different from other clubs is that we go out and actually compete in electric go kart races," Lee said.

One member of the Motor Sports Club, freshman Joseph Zbasnik, started participating in the electric go kart racing club during fall semester.

"Getting experience with the electrical technology and everything that goes into the design of the electric go kart is awesome," Zbasnik said. "Anyone can join. I'm learning new stuff in the club every day about the club and about how go cart motors work."

Anyone interested in becoming part of the club can email Spencer Lee at [email protected] or Anthony Palumbo at [email protected]

The club meets every Thursday at the Airport from p.m.  MSD

Go-Karts Are Coming To Somers Golf Center
  By: Megan Bard
Filed Under: Go Kart -

There is a chance that by the Fourth of July holiday travelers along Main Street will hear a faint whir coming from the Somers Golf Center.

The sound will be from new outdoor electric go karts whizzing around a 1,foot long concrete track that will be built at the rear of the property behind the existing hole miniature golf course and batting cages.

Tuesday night, the Zoning Commission approved a special permit request submitted by  Main Street LLC, owner of the actvity center that also includes a driving range and Sonny's Restaurant.

Prior to voting on the request the commission held a 7-minute long public hearing, just enough time for Timothy Coon of J.R. Russo & Associates LLC, an engineering and surveying company based in East Windsor, to present the proposal and commissioners to ask for public comment - there was none.

The plan has already been approved by the wetlands commission and received a positive recommendation from the planning and conservation commissions, along with the health department official.

"We're excited to make it more of an amuzement center for the local region to enjoy. We want to make it more for the whole family to come out and fly around in these carts with an electric go-kart motor," Jonathan Murray said after the vote; Murray represents the owner.

In addition to the track, a small pit building will be constructed for maintenance and storage associated with the track and the 24 electric go kart(s). The go cart motors used are electric and have a ton more torque than a gas model. Go kart electric motors are inexpensive, quite, and have a lot of power.

The project is within the year flood plain so compensatory storage will be created on the far side of the wetland, as approved by the wetlands commission.

The track will be pitched inward so that any runoff can be collected in a single location and go through a series of filters before being discharged to a wetland at the rear of the site.

Duo power up for kart race
  By: Nicola Weatherall, Sunday Sun
Filed Under: Go Kart -

TWO North students are on track to build an electric go kart that will reach a hair-raising mph. That a lot of power for a go kart electric motor.

What’s more, the duo will become the first British go-karters to compete in one of the world’s biggest racing tournaments.

Engineering students John Wood and Hayley Blythe, from Sunderland, are currently developing the electric go-kart motor and battery for the electric go kart, which will power their way to the Indianapolis Mile Race.

Also known as the Indy , it is billed as America’s greatest spectacle in racing and is regarded as one of the most significant motorsport events in the world.

More than , racing enthusiasts attend the event every year and it is watched on television by millions of viewers across the globe.

This is the first time any vehicle outside the US has been invited to compete in Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s prestigious Electric Vehicle Grand Prix – or evGrandPrix.

This year’s Indy is particularly special as it celebrates its th anniversary, but the evGrandPrix is a much more recent addition to the event schedule. (electric go kart)

John and Hayley, who are studying at Sunderland University, have been set the challenge to design, build and race a fast and energy-efficient electric go kart over laps. The go kart electric motors are very quiet but very powerful.

They were invited to compete after a visit to Purdue University in Indiana during a conference with the Society for Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

On race day, it will be Hayley behind the wheel of the electric go kart and she’s determined she can cut it in a man’s sport with her high performance go kart electric motors.

Dave Baglee, project coordinator at Sunderland University, who’ll be joining the students at the event, added: “John and Hayley are excited at the thought of showing off their electric go kart skills. We have a great car with an incredible electric go-kart motor and a strong team spirit, and real potential to compete well and finish in a top position.”

The evGrandPrix will take place on May 7,   MSD

Electric-kart inventor hopes to inspire more
Filed Under: Go Kart -

After President Barack Obama said early in his presidency that we, as a nation, must start building things again, San Clemente real estate broker George Fortin went to work to build an electric go kart from scratch in the garage of his Talega home with a high performance electric go-kart motor.

In November, a year and $4, later, he finished the horsepower, zero-emission vehicle he calls the Z-Kart.(electric go kart) It uses six lead-acid batteries and has a range of 20 miles at speeds of 40 to 50 mph, depending on the gearing installed. With a frame built from recycled polyethylene, it weighs about pounds and can be charged from a regular household electrical outlet in about three hours, Fortin said.

Fortin, 55, said he was inspired not only by the words of the president but also a personal conviction to live "greener."

"If I can build this using common tools and stuff from local hardware stores, then think of what someone could build with better resources and an engineering degree," he said.



His parents learned quickly that no household appliance was safe from their son when he had a screwdriver in his hand. He took apart can openers and hairdryers and even made an electric scooter with the rotisserie motor from his dad's barbecue.

Fortin, who grew up in Diamond Bar, began "engineering" electric go karts when he was about 11, including secretly taking apart his dad's first gasoline lawn mower.

But he didn't get serious until he upgraded an old motorized minibike. He said all the adults in the neighborhood had off-road bikes and would regularly ride to the top of a particularly steep hill. Limited by the small motor on his minibike, he was unable to tag along. But he swapped his bike's 3-horsepower motor for a Briggs & Stratton 8-horsepower model, and soon he was on top of the hill.

"The (bigger) motor was all in pieces when I got it, and when I had it on the bike it was so big, the spark plug came up through the top of the seat. But I made it work," Fortin said. "Sitting on top of that hill it was my moment."

Fortin, who has no formal training in design or engineering, has never stopped making things, with dozens of self-propelled vehicles and electric go karts made and pulled apart again – always salvaging the parts to make something better. Trial and error has shown him what works and what doesn't, including gear ratios, chassis design, suspension and steering assemblies.

Fortin says he is driven by curiosity about how things work and making things people can use efficiently and safely.

"I am just a big kid," he said.

His first Z-Kart had spoked bicycle wheels, but when the motor torque and tight steering tests kept tearing the wheels off, he redesigned it using dune-buggy wheels with motorcycle tires, along with other refinements.

"I really want to use my story to support making the garage a breeding ground for new ideas," Fortin said. "Big corporate companies are too bogged down with stuff. The garage is a personal space free from negativity and politics, where a person with the passion and an idea can be creative. Apple and Microsoft did it."

Fortin said he has had about , hits on his YouTube videos featuring the Z-Kart, along with more than 4, emails from people inquiring about how to build an electric go kart themselves. He also has been contacted by San Clemente-based chassis maker Swift Engineering to possibly help take the Z-Kart to the next level with higher performance go kart electric motors.  MSD

Go Karts: 7 Advantages of Electric Go Karts Over Gas
  By: D Swain
Filed Under: Go Kart -

Deciding to buy your child a go kart can be a difficult decision to make. If you have already decided to take the plunge, then you may be trying to decide whether gas or electric go karts are the better choice. Electric go karts have a number of advantages over karts powered by gas. This article will share with you those advantages.


Electric go karts are usually much cheaper than their gas counterparts. Karts powered by gas normally start around $ or $ You can find a lot of electric go karts that will only cost you a maximum of $ Go kart electric motors are easy to find. D&D Motor Systems, Inc has plenty.


Go karts that rely on gas for power can be dangerous due to the fact that gasoline is extremely flammable. Most parents wouldn't be too thrilled with having their kids handling gasoline. Even kids can safely handle the batteries required by electric go karts. Also, most electric go karts have some form of electric go kart controller that allows the parent to control the electric go kart speed. 

Environmentally Friendlier

Everyone knows that burning gas releases toxic fumes into the atmosphere. For the environmentally conscious parent, electric go kartmotors are the perfect solution. In addition to helping save the Earth, your kid won't be breathing in any poisonous fumes while he's having fun in his new electric go kart.


The engine of gas powered go karts make a lot of noise when running. If you live in a relatively quiet neighborhood, this may cause problems with your neighbors. Electric go kart motors make considerably less noise.


Maintenance costs for go karts powered by gas can add up quickly. You will need a constant supply of fuel. In addition to this, gas engines are more susceptible to breakdowns and oil leaks. With electric go kart motors, you can simply recharge the battery time and time again. Also, electric go karts have much less moving parts, so they are far less likely to break down. An electric go kart motor is very simple to get repaired.


Electric go kart motors usually are more efficient than gas go kart engines. Electric go kart motors easily outperform gas powered karts in handling and performance. Also, electric go karts are virtually impossible to tip over while cutting sharp corners like gas go karts are vulnerable to doing.

Easier to Start

With electric go kart motors, you just turn the key and press the pedal. Go kart electric motors have a ton of immediate torque.   MSD

Introduction: How to Make an Electric Go Kart

In this Instructable I will be showing you how I transformed an old gas powered go kart into an electric go kart. This project was very time consuming and I am very happy to finally share it with all of you! The hardest part of this project was definitely searching for all of the parts and overcoming issues along the way. This go kart is loads of fun to drive around town and with the current sprocket set up it can go around 50kph!

Before you go through the rest of the steps for this project, you should definitely watch the video that I have posted below. The video will show you plenty of clips of me building the go kart from start to finish and you will also be able to see my drive it! Also, if you enjoy the video you should definitely hit the like button or even consider subscribing to my YouTube channel. Most importantly don't forget to follow me here on my Instructables page so that you can see all of my future projects! Let's get started with this project!


Step 1: Buying an Old Go Kart

A while back I was browsing through Kijiji and I came across a rusty old go kart which I ended up purchasing for only $60! This go kart did not run and was overall in very rough shape. All that mattered was it had a lot of the parts that I needed in order to complete this project. I had the idea of making an electric go kart for quite some time and when I saw this go kart for sale I knew it would be the perfect time to get the project started.

Step 2: Restoring the Frame

I spent a lot of time restoring the frame along with some of the original parts. I started by disassembling the entire go kart. The frame was very rusty and all of the old paint was peeling off. The first thing I wanted to do was grind the frame down to bare metal in order to prepare it for a new paint job. After removing all of the rust I realized that the frame was very short and because I am 6' 2" my legs would not fit comfortably. I ended up cutting the frame in half and extending it by 5".

Once that was finished I gave the frame a fresh coat of paint and then slowly began putting the go kart back together. The paint I used was a vibrant orange Rustoleum oil based paint.

Step 3: How It Works

Before I go any further with this Instructable I am going show you all of the parts that I used and show you how everything will work.

The parts that I used were:

  • A W 48V brushless motor
  • A W 48V speed controller
  • A 48V hand throttle with a battery indicator and speed limit switch
  • A 3 pole charge port
  • A key switch
  • And a 48V 12AH lead acid battery pack

I would have much rather used lithium ion, but that would have made things much more expensive.

In the pictures above you will see a diagram that I made so that you can see exactly how I wired everything together.

The motor, speed controller, hand throttle, charge port, battery charger, and batteries were all purchased from: http://www.hyperpowersports.com/categories/electric-scooters/parts-for-hyper-racing/electric-scooter-parts.html

You can also find most of these parts on Aliexpress.

Step 4: Making the Foot Throttle

One of the first things that I did was convert the hand throttle into a foot throttle. I started by disassembling the throttle and removing the battery indicator, as well as the speed limit switch. I will be re using the battery indicator later on but I won't be re using the speed limit switch.

I then took some measurements and designed a foot pedal on Tinkercad which I then printed using black ABS. The pedal just slides on and is fastened into place with two screws. I then covered up the existing holes so no dust will get inside and added a spring to give it more tension. I also added a stopper so the pedal can't get pressed too hard and snap.

Here is a link to the .STL file: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing

Step 5: The Build

Here are some pictures of me assembling the go kart so you can see how I put everything together.

The original rear hubs were seized onto the 1" live axle. I was forced to cut them off with a grinder and look for new ones. Luckily my neighbor had some old wheels in his shed so I took them apart and cleaned them up. Originally these hubs had bearings inside and were not made to go onto a live axle. What I did was removed the bearings and welded on some weld on hubs from Princess Auto.

The seat that originally came on the go kart was broken in half. The new seat is a LEIFARNE seat shell from IKEA and it works perfectly!

I used Molex connectors to connect all of the electrical components together. All of the electrical components get connected to the speed controller. The speed controller is fasted inside of a 6"W x 8"L x 3"H aluminum project box. On one side of the project box there is a flexible grommet which all of the wires can be fed through. The other side of the project box is where I fastened the charge port. On top of the project box is where I put the key switch as well as the battery indicator. I put heat shrink around the battery indicator to avoid any short circuits.

The go karts brake is a simple disc brake which is connected to a foot pedal at the front with a length of threaded rod.

The sprocket on the motor is a 12 tooth sprocket and the sprocket on the axle is a 61 tooth sprocket. The chain size is # The sprocket on the motor is custom made. I welded a 12 tooth sprocket from princess auto onto the T8 sprocket that came with it.I ran the motor and held a flap disk to it in order for the outer diameter of the old sprocket to fit inside of the new one. That way it could be welded on perfectly straight.

Step 6: Things to Know

Overall I had a lot of fun building this go kart and it works better than I expected! Although there are some features that can be added. One very important thing that I am missing is a chain guard.

I have yet to determine how far it can go on one charge (I will update this when I know). I only drive the go kart for about 20 minutes at a time. I do this just to allow the motor to cool off.

Also, for better results try to keep the weight of your go kart as light as possible. This will result in better performance.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

I hope that you all enjoyed this Instructable! Don't for get to follow me here on Instructables and to Subscribe to my YouTube channel! Thanks for reading and watching :)

Electric go-kart club, EV Kartz, created at Kettering University to bring more experience with electric powertrains

Kettering University students who want hands-on experience with electric powertrains and have a need for speed now have a new student club to join.

The EV Kartz Club was started by Jamie Everhart ‘19 and Alex Calderon ‘19 in to give students access to electric high speed vehicles in the form of go-karts. The club will design, build, and race the electric go-karts in an annual competition. EV Kartz team members show off the electric go-kart

“We purchased a go-kart chassis kit and will be building the powertrain. We wanted to build out the electric motorsports platform at Kettering and wanted to add extra options for students who want to work with electric motorsports,” said Everhart, an Electrical Engineering major at Kettering. “If students are interested in building, this club is for them. This is the only thing they can drive that is an electric high-speed vehicle.”

The team’s first competition is the EV Grand Prix in May at the Indianapolis Speedway. The main objective of the collegiate competition is to the win the race. There is also a design award for innovation and an efficiency award for the team that finishes the race using the least amount of energy.

What will really set Kettering’s team apart, Everhart said, is the uniqueness of the go-kart.

“We are in the process of designing a custom motor. Everything on the powertrain side will be built by students. We will be the only team coming to this competition with a student-built inverter, motor, battery management system, and battery pack. All the electronics on it are done in house,” Everhart said. “We will go to competition with a complete Kettering powertrain. That will be pretty cool.”

The idea for EV Kartz started when Everhart and Calderon were starting to work on their Electrical Engineering capstone project. For the capstone project they decided to design a torque vector control system for a dual-motor go-kart in which a supervisor controller receives inputs from the driver and vehicle motion sensors and outputs torque requests to each inverter/motor with the aim of increasing the performance of the vehicle while cornering.  

The club originated from this project, but Everhart and Calderon expanded the scope of the club to include a traditional single motor go-kart, as well.  

“In the way the automotive industry is moving to put electric motors in car to improve the efficiency, the club gives a better understanding and hands-on skills they maybe wouldn’t get outside of school. Students would get a good basis to carry on that work in their co-op. It’s a great learning opportunity,” Calderon said. “We want to offer more electric motor opportunities. Plus the go-karts are fast. That’s pretty great.”

The club is active for A and B sections. All majors are invited to join. Students interested in joining can contact Everhart at [email protected]

“For students who are interested in vehicle control systems and racing, we will provide the first options for this. Anyone who takes this club forward will have a basic model with a pretty cool control system in place for this. They can tune it to be better,” Everhart said. “Anyone who wants to learn about electric powertrains or controllers is welcome to join. And obviously go-karts are fun. That’s a bonus.”

Buying Guide: How to Choose an Electric Motor for Your Go-Kart

As you can see, there are many electric go-kart motors on the market and finding the perfect one for your go-kart may not be all that easy. There are quite a number of things to consider and getting these things right is absolutely crucial. 

In this buying guide, we’ll take a closer look at various aspects which include motor output, voltage, current, compatibility, components, mounting and price. Understanding these aspects in more detail will enable you to find a suitable motor for your kart and will make your purchase decision much easier.


One of the most important things that you will need to consider is the ability of a go-kart motor to deliver the required power for your go-kart. For electric go-kart motors, its respective power or output is calculated by multiplying torque (Nm) with speed (RPM). To help you further understand this let&#;s take a closer look at the terms torque and speed. Torque is the rotating force produced by the motor, whereas the speed refers to how many revolutions a minute (RPM) the shaft is rotating with. 

Electric go-kart motors with a higher output rating are more powerful and are able to propel your go-kart faster. Higher output motors in the 2, to 3, watt range are ideal for racing go-karts or adult karts that are generally heavier in weight. They require more power, as they are required to move more weight. 

Motors in the middle of the range at about 1, to 2, watts are for mid-sized karts, which are typically youth karts or average homemade go-karts. Anything below 1, watts is considered on the lower end of the spectrum and is ideal for go-karts that are meant for kids or small and lightweight go-karts. 

You should also keep in mind that a higher output may not necessarily mean better. This is because high output motors are usually heavier in weight and also require bigger batteries. It can add to the weight of your go-kart and it&#;s therefore recommended that you find a motor that hits the sweet spot in terms of output to go-kart weight ratio. 


Voltage refers to the electric pressure of a go-kart motor. The rated voltage of go-kart motors typically range between 24 to 72 volts. The word rated refers to the voltage that the electric motor is designed to operate at reliably. Other parameters such as current and speed depend on which voltage a motor is running at. 

For instance, let’s take a look at a 1, watt motor with a rated voltage of 48 V, a rated current of 20 amps and a rated speed of 3, RPM. The go-kart motor will perform as indicated by these parameters if operated under 48 V. If you operate using only 20 volts for example, the motor will run on less amps, and have a lower speed. 

It’s important to note that your batteries should have the same voltage rating as your electric go-kart motor. If the battery has a lower rated voltage, it will lower the performance of the motor. If their voltage is higher than the motor, it can reduce the lifespan of the motor and eventually cause it to fail. Therefore, when picking your go-kart motor, ensure that you have a battery that matches the rated voltage, to ensure that the motor can operate optimally.


An electric current is the flow of electrons through a circuit. An electric motor’s current is measured in ampere or simply amps. The higher the rated current of a motor, the more electrons flow through, which also means that more electricity is required. 

To give you a simpler analogy, think of a garden hose. The voltage is the force that helps to push the water through the hose, whereas the water itself would act as the current. The concept of current is important to understand, as it will help you determine what battery size you will need, in order to operate your go-kart engine for a given time. 

Think of it as a resource of a power plant. If a battery is rated at Ah (amp hours), it can output 1 amp for hours. For example, if your motor draws a current of 20 amps, it will be able to operate for 5 hours. Therefore, you should pay special attention to the battery in relation to the motor, as it needs to be large enough to supply your motor with enough electricity. You don’t want to be driving your electric kart for 10 minutes before having to recharge it again.


An electric go-kart motor needs to be compatible with other important components, in order to run efficiently and effectively. Some of the most important components that you will need to look out for are batteries and speed controllers. They all need to be compatible with your go-kart motor in order for it to function optimally. 

Keep in mind that the output of the motor should be appropriate for the weight of your go-kart. You should also include the driver’s weight in the weight calculation. You also don’t want to overpower your go-kart if it’s meant for kids. Conversely, you also don’t want to underpower your go-kart if it’s meant for racing or if your go-kart is heavier. The best is to find a sweet spot. 

You also need to make sure that you have a battery that matches the parameters of the electric go-kart motor. You should ensure that the rated voltage matches that of the battery in order for the motor to run optimally. The same can be said for the speed controllers. Ensure that it’s compatible to get the most out of your motor.

You’ll notice that some of the motors listed in this review contain accessories such as tools, hardware and speed controllers. If you decide to go for an electric motor kit, you will receive all components that are compatible with it. This can help you save time and also ensure that your motor is equipped with compatible components. 

If you’re a little more knowledgeable on go-kart motors, you can also opt for a single motor without a kit. This will allow you to customize and source for your own speed controller. I personally prefer to source my own parts, as I like a certain level of customization. If you&#;re building your own homemade go-karts and are still unfamiliar with electric go-kart motors, I suggest that you opt for a kit.


If you look at the electric go-kart motors in this review, you&#;ll notice that all of them feature a mounting bracket that is attached to the bottom of the motor. A mounting bracket is an important feature, as it directly holds the motor against the frame.

Electric motors for go-karts and other types of recreational vehicles have a mounting bracket for increased practicality. There are also other types of electric motors that don’t come with a mounting bracket. This means that you’ll need to weld a bracket to the motor, or create your own mounting mechanism for your go-kart. 

I highlighly recommend that you purchase an electric go-kart motor that already has a mounting bracket in place, such as the motors features in this review. This will make the setup and installation much easier.


Electric go-kart motors are very affordable nowadays. The price of an electric motor mainly depends on how powerful it is. The power of a go-kart motor is generally indicated by the output in watts, which can be used as a reference.

An entry-level go-kart motor starts at about $50, whereas a more powerful motor can go up to about $ The average go-kart motor costs about $75 &#; $ Motor kits are slightly more expensive, as they contain some extra components such as tools, hardware and speed controllers. 

  • Low Output Motor: $50 &#; $75
  • Mid Output Motor: $75 &#; $ 
  • High Output Motor: $ &#; $

Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions that deal with finding the best electric motors for go-karts. If you have questions and don’t find the answer below, feel free to write a comment so that I can address it and potentially add them to the list.

What Size Electric Motor Do I Need for My Go Kart?

The size or output of your electric go-kart motor should always be in proportion to the weight of your go-kart. In general smaller go-kart motors ( to watts) should be used for lightweight or go-karts that are meant for kids. Mid-range electric go-kart motors (1, to 2, watts) are meant for medium-sized or youth go-karts. Larger motors that are 2, watts and above are suitable for racing or heavier adult go-karts. 

I’ve created a list below where you can easily compare the speed of your go-kart in relation to the overall weight. I’ve used the average weight of a person ( lbs) together with the weight of an average go-kart ( lbs) for reference.

What Types of Electric Go Kart Motors Are There?

Electric go-kart motors run on a direct current (DC) and are specifically designed and shaped for recreational vehicles. That’s why you can see that they&#;re also suitable for scooters, ATVs and bicycles. Therefore, they have a compact design and a mounting bracket that easily allows you to install the motor to your go-kart. 

There are also other electric motors that you can use for your homemade go-kart. I’ve seen go-karts run on electric motors from washing machines, lawnmowers, vacuum cleaners and other types of appliances. Some of them may require some modifications as they’re too large or have no mounting brackets. It’s therefore recommended to stick with electric motors that are designed for recreational vehicles.

Should I Only Get a Go-Kart Motor or a Kit?

The answer to this depends on how comfortable you are in sourcing for compatible components. I personally like to customize my go-karts and therefore only choose a go-kart motor without the components of a kit. I’ll then proceed to choose a compatible speed controller and battery. 

If you’re unsure about the compatibility of electric components, you’re better off purchasing a go-kart motor kit. Compatibility is extremely important, especially if you’re building your own go-kart. Incompatibility of components can potentially shorten the motor’s lifespan and in worst case permanently damage it. The electric go-kart motors that are featured in this review contain a mix or individual motors and motor kits for you to choose from.
