electric scooter :)

So i was buying some stuff off of a guy in my racing club and I noticed in his "crap for sale" list there was an electric scooter. I was already buying 300 bucks worth of stuff off him, so i told him to throw in the scooter (50 bucks) for free.

I should have it on Tuesday evening to play with. I really have no idea what it looks like or what model, but one thing's for sure... i'm going to mod it to go faster and farther

He tells me it "claims" a top speed of 15km/h. I'll check out what kind of battery/throttle/motor it has, and explore my options of bumping up the range, power and efficiency. If the motor can handle it, more volts. If the throttle is not advance, DIY controller... either way, it will be getting bigger/better batteries!
