Electric Go-Kart: Test Drive #2

With a new set of custom motor controllers, we were able to test some of the more interesting features of the Cap Kart. More info:

In addition to its batteries, the kart has a 110F ultracapacitor, which ultimately will be charged by a simple regenerative braking circuit. Then, the driver can use this energy in the form of a boost by pressing a button on the steering wheel.
