    Yeah Rich, use a 1000cc crotch rocket motor.

    I'm actually getting a rascal scooter that broke the output gear on the motor to use for parts and make an electric cart for the kiddo. I figure if that thing used to haul a 275lb man up hills and over rough terrain, I can make it haul a 40-70lb kid at a pretty good clip.

    The motor is an odd configuration where the bearings are integrated into the mounts and the armature has an integral pinion that rides against the ring gear on the diff, so I might scrap that in favor of another motor. But the speed control and integral charger along with all the needed circuits already there should make it a pretty simple chassis build and drive train swap over short of needing to do something about the differential. The scooter even has heim joints for the steering linkages, so it's rich in components to pillage.

    I don't know where you plan on using it, but the first one I built I used the standard clutch you see on most go-carts I upgraded that to a torque converter and wow did that make it fun. It could climb hills with two people in it and it had some top end too.
