How long can you operate on 12Ah? It appears there is no axle CV joints. It only has central articulation? I have two brushed, 36V, 1000w motors I want to build something with. Maybe a small yard tractor?
It'll run ~30 min. off-road
...& maybe 45 min. or so on pavement
...but, (if you notice in the video) there is a "wicked" voltage drop (~4V - 5V on a hard take off)
Nope no, suspension or CV joints
...(1) motor drives the "live axle" connected to the front wheels
...another (1) drives the rear wheels
...& she "articulates" (close to) the middle, to facilitate the steering action
Thanks for the reply, Officer Martian
...but, it's not really a "roll cage"
The main purpose of the "top (2) bars" is to provide upper pivot support, for the articulation action
So, it's more like a "roll bar" (witch provides some "crush" protection) in the event of a roll over crash.
...but, doesn't provide much, if any, "cage" type protection (where you'd want to be "strapped in")
Notice, that the top (2) bars
...& even most of the kart is only ~8" wide (providing very little side impact or roll over protection)
So, IMO (in this specific case) it's best to NOT be "strapped in"
...this way (the driver) can be "thrown free", from the wreckage
