Build your own electric go kart

If you are looking for a'garage engineering' project that can be built with basic tools then look no further. Fitted with a 500W motor this electric kart is capable of 12-15mph (but can be restricted to lower speeds). The design is flexible and can easily be adapted. As drawn, the kart is 1.32m long, has track (width) of 0.99m and stands 0.62m high.

Made with a steel tube section frame,the kart is a simple welding project with a TIG, MIG or MMA (stick) welder. The design is scalable and all dimensions can be multiplied by up to 20% to produce a larger kart. The project is a great way to learn about welding, electric drives, speed controllers, steering geometry, braking systems and mechnical engineering.

A lighting system is fitted, making night-driving possible. Speed is controlled by a 4QD motor controller that also produces a regenerative braking effect. Additional braking for the kart is provided by a cable operated disc brake.
