Visit http://www.therenewableyou.com for technical details on this solar powered go kart. In this project we took a go kart frame designed to take a gas engine and made it electric and solar powered. It uses a 48V SLA battery pack with a EMC Brushed DC motor, 0-5k Ohm Pot Box throttle, Alltrax controller and an Astronergy 190W solar panel to charge the pack. Watch clip 2/2 to see a test drive. Runs great with a top speed of ~15mph, and because of the solar panel a potentially infinite range!
