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, KIT-24300: https://cart.electricscooterparts.com/24-volt-500-watt-razor-dune-buggy-modification-kit-KIT-24300
24 Volt 500 Watt with Reverse, KIT-24301: https://cart.electricscooterparts.com/24-volt-500-watt-razor-dune-buggy-modification-kit-with-reverse
36 Volt 1000 Watt, KIT-36300: https://cart.electricscooterparts.com/36-volt-1000-watt-razor-dune-buggy-modification-kit
36 Volt 1000 Watt with Reverse, KIT-36301: https://cart.electricscooterparts.com/36-volt-1000-watt-razor-dune-buggy-modification-kit-with-reverse
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.
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.
