 Here is my son and my foray into electric vehicles,
an electric gokart. We have, since the video, put new
batteries on it and installed a much stiffer motor mount.

 It is a hoot to drive.

Wait until your kids turn 16.
They'll be putting modified forklift motors in your Prius ;D

Cheers

  I can only hope!
It was like pulling teeth to get him to put time into the project.
What should have taking weeks, took six months. I started the project
to get him interested in something other than video games. I tried not
to work on it if he didn't. So it took a long time to get to the first run.
