So as you may or may not know, the Delsolectric never made it onto the road legally. In fact, we had to scrap it since it was just sitting in my friend's parent's backyard for... a few years.
Anyway, we did keep all the parts. We had wanted to build an electric go kart for a while, but never really had the space. I just moved into a new place, with my very own garage, and we decided it was time to do it.
We found this custom home made dune buggy on Kijiji for $1,500, marked down from $3,000. A guy had it commissioned and it is slick. It had a 13HP Honda engine in it and didn't go that fast, but it was built extremely well. The whole thing is made of 1-1/4" steel tubing, with lubed bearings, shocks, and a fancy aluminum tread plate cover. It was ripe for conversion.
