Default Wicked Carts Electric Drag Cart

ok we have started the electric drag cart build.... kinda crazy but its coming together faster than i though....

when the build is done we will give thanks to the people and companys that helped

we are going basic to get on the track faster and to do some test to give you guys the difference between voltage,wieght,tire size etc

it started life as a 2000 pds ezgo lifted

now is 0-5k pot box with a 72 volt 450 amp alltrax controller
a big custom motor built for us
no reverse
our custom cage
jr dragster rear wheels and slicks
skinnys and light weight wheels up front

we are trying to test and tune (run) tonite and then sunday is a Summit Racing bracket series and run some pass then to maybe even bracket race it

here are some pics of the build ill have more pics tomorrow

48v, stock rear end, tall tires. That's gonna take a very high RPM motor to get to 50mph.

18" tires makes it even worse. Very high RPM indeed. Keep us posted! Best of luck.
