I'm considering the following setup for an electric go-kart build:
Motor: Kunray MY1020 Brushless Motor SPECS: Type: Brushless DC High Speed Motor, Voltage 48V, Power 2000W Max, Current 42A, Rated Speed 4300rpm/min
Controller: Flipsky FSESC Mini V4 50A ESC Electric Speed Controller
Battery: 4 Mighty Max Battery 12V 35AH
Can anyone give any input on whether or not this combo will work to power a small go-kart?
I have selected the controller because I want to have full control over modifications using an Arduino. Is this motor too powerful for the controller. Finally, will these batteries power the vehicle for at least 30 min?
Thanks, it's my first post. Hopefully I've chosen the correct location for it.

I can't speak for the specific combination you ask about
...but, I've used 48V 1,000W brushed motors to power many go karts.

Here is a video of a kart I built named Excalibur
In this video, it's powered by (1) 48V 1,000W MY-1020 brushed motor ($125.00)
...& (4) 12V 12AH Mighty Max SLA batteries ($125.00)
...& I drove it around for probably ~1/2 hour
