In the photo above the motor is mounted to the frame with two 1/4" threaded rods that are bent into a U-shape. This is because if the same motor with mounting base was used it would be too tall to fit into the frame. We recommend placing 1/4" ID clear flexible nylon tubing over the threaded rod where it contacts the motor so the motor's paint does not get scratched and also to provide a better grip onto the motor.
Here are four modification upgrade kits that we currently have for the Razor Dune Buggy:
24 Volt 500 Watt with Reverse: https://cart.electricscooterparts.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=KIT-24301
36 Volt 1000 Watt with Reverse: https://cart.electricscooterparts.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=KIT-36301
All of these kits can be customized with different throttles, switches, batteries, chargers, or other parts. If you like one of these kits however would prefer it to have a different part then please let us know and we will make a custom kit tailored specifically for your project.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
The Kart comes with 2 12V 7.5ah batteries. Can the 36 volt 1000 watt package above be modified to include a single 7.5ah battery instead? I'm trying to get the cost down. What will the approximate run time be? Are the 15ah batteries included in the package a necessity?
The 30-minute maximum discharge current level for 7.5Ah battery pack is 15 Amps and the controller in the 1000 Watt kits has a 32 Amp current limit so the 7.5Ah batteries are not suitable for the kit. 15Ah batteries are the smallest size that we recommend using and include with the 1000 Watt kits.
