How to Make an Electric Go Kart – Part 2

So I have been getting tons of questions about my electric go kart project. I have had many people asking about the top speed, the brake and how long I can drive it for on one charge. I have also had some suggestions on upgrades, which is why I decided to make this video!

In this video I will be measuring the go karts exact top speed as well as how long it can run from a full charge. I will also be making a chain guard, demonstrating how the brake works, adding a brake switch and adding a brake light.

Congratulations to the 5 key chain winners:
Archie Challinor
Hunter Shuman
The King of Awesome
Zachary Schurr
Jeremy O’grady
