Thanks for the reply Ryland!
Yeah I had looked at his yugo on there, but it was still difficult to see where all the batteries go etc. There is some good info though. That site has been very useful and interesting. I'd love to be able to modify something light and aerodynamic like a Honda Crx, but I figured I already have this, so I might as well use it.

Wow, I had no idea that a golf cart motor could draw that much without frying. I'll definitely add a cooling system and see what I can do with the current motor, then if it's not enough upgrade it to a single larger motor.

Thanks for the information on the gel batteries. I had always heard that the gel batteries were longer lasting which is why I was looking at them. I'll look into some quality flooded lead acid batteries and see what kind of a battery pack that would make.
