The motors are actually doing okay with the controllers now. It isn't a rocket, but on the road it has no trouble getting up to about 22 mph, which is plenty on that kart for my kids honestly. It'll go that fast on the dirt too, but the bouncing at that speed is painful.

My weak link now is the batteries. I've got 4 of the 12v 22Ah batteries off Amazon on it. When it's drawing the full 60 amps that output drops about 6-7V. I need to make sure I'm not loosing in the wire to my cutoff, but I'm guessing the batteries are just drooping from the strain. Once the batteries are drained to the point that they sit at about 47-48V, it becomes pretty gutless. Thinking another set of batteries in parallel.
