Felixtimlock Electric Go Kart

Electric go karts seem to be getting more popular these days, the Felixtimlock go kart is one of the fastest ones I have seen so far. There is a description video of the kart after the jump.

    Very cool, although I’d want some kind of brake other than a kill switch. XD

  2. Flapp Says:

    Wow! nice go-kart.
    but in the second video the guy keeps saying ehm…. uhm.. . etc.

    ozone loving gokarts = win

    oh yeah, well the guys at “make” made hovercrafts as a weekend project!!!

  5. Paul Says:

    Sweet go-cart, I wouldn’t mind having one

  6. liesofxiii Says:

    now lets make it solar!

    The people in the Karting world hate the word go-kart. go-karts are toys their machines are serious racing machines.

  8. Hexypoo Says:

    Ahh, that sux… But still I wouldnt mind having one of those Go-Karts 🙂

    this is nice electric motors are the way to go in things like this you will get instant power, unlike classic go-karts. even though combustion motors are nice to hear the motor rev and fell the power 😀 which reminds me, im building a WIFI robot the size of about a Cadillac power wheels, and its going to be in the shape of a truck, with a hook on flat bed, its not gonna pull to much weight but. i can’t find nice strong DC motors. anyone know of any good ones? my controller is the roboteq AX2550

    Hi Seesoe,

    Would a wheelchair motor or a forklift motor work? They have lots of torque.

  11. seesoe Says:

    i looked a little at wheelchair motors but do you think that they can zoom? i would like them to be real fast *not speaking fast as this go-kart in the video* but relatively fast

    sorry to hijeack this article:D

  13. Clark Hummell Says:

    I…WANT ONE!!!!

    劲!

    I went completely scratch-built. Wheelchair motors probably won’t do the trick, but golf cart or forklift motors will. Felix did well by using an existing frame, and keeping the weight down. My karts are not as quick as his, but at least one has a higher top speed, longer run time, and about twice the weight.

    Look around the electric vehicle part vendors’ sites for motors. Golf cart motors need modification for use in karts, because they don’t have normal shafts (or faceplates on the output end). I’ve modified a couple to use them, but it’s a big project.

    Wow that IS fast.

  17. Gable Says:

    Have you given any thought to using your wheels to re-generate your batteries to extend battery life? I don’t know how this would work but worth a shot. Short of like an old school water wheel pushing a generator. Since your wheels are already turning this could = free energy / re-used energy.

  18. Jonathan Says:

    I was wondering what kind of electric motor that go-kart was using?

  19. Alan Parekh Says:

    Not exactly sure Jonathan but it looks like it may be a golf cart motor.

  20. jack Says:

    you would use dynamic braking to put power back into you batteries, wouldnt be heaps but enough to extended the life a little bit. it not to hard to wire up.
