Default Electric cooler kart

Will a 24v 100 watt electric scooter motor be enough to make a cooler kart with a wood frame go about 7-10 mph

7 maybe 10 I doubt..
but that largely depends on the weight it has to move tbh.

I'd say you're much better off finding a 350W pregeared my1016 with matching controller to achieve a 10mph goal reliably.

check the calculation thread..
and you'll see that my best guess for a 10mph goal will be around 160-180Watts at least

adn you do not want to run at peak power constantly sooo 350Watts is certainly a good size for a lightweight contraption(and rider)


PS Wrong Forum, I'll move this thread
