The throttle linked above is really slick...mine just came in the mail. Since I started with a racekart, it makes it easy to just adapt to the stock accelerator pedal. Definitely worth the $25 so my kids don't need to retrain their brains to use a thumb or twist throttle on a "car" and not as clunky as those bolt-on pedals.

Check out these pull type throttle cables. They seem perfect for converting old ICE (gas powered) go karts over to electric.

Cool to find someone else in GA. I'm in Gwinnett County. Just found a rolling chassis that I will be making electric.

That is awesome. I am routinely in Atlanta so if you take it to a track let me know. Id love to stop by and see it in action. By the way we opted to build a second prototype using an alternating current (AC) motor with 18650 lithium ion cells. Check us out on Facebook .... @VenomKarts

Very sorry for the picture that is sideways. I have not quite mastered the art of posting photos yet. :-).

How did the Motenergy ME0708 do? I'm looking for a 48v motor and have seen the ME0708 used before but don't have enough performance details.

Thanks for your message. I actually started a second go kart project and never finished the first. :-)
