Okay, so it's not the fastest or most impressive test drive we've ever had. (The kart suffered a[nother] MOSFET failure after a few runs.) But it highlights one of the new features: a custom-built rear axle differential. With this additi...

Added over 6 years ago | 00:00:28 | 15025 views

The improved Cap Kart now has lightweight lithium-ion batteries and a custom rear differential. This is mostly a test of the rebuilt rear axle, but also always good to make sure the controller still works, since it's cursed. Next orde...

Electric Go-Kart: First Test-Drive

Added over 8 years ago | 00:06:15 | 21127 views

The maiden voyage of our electric go-kart. Our field controller (the only piece of off-the-shelf electronics on the kart) broke, so it is limited to low gear with no capacitor brake/boost. Next time...http://web.mit.edu/first/kart
