    Powering, or rather controlling this motor looks a bit difficult, 5 wires, with 2 of the wires connected together. I've searched on google and it seems I need something like single phase controller.

    depends how old it is the 3 extra wires would probably be slow medium and fast for the motor speeds by grounding that wire.

    But then again it could need to have a controller like your said.

    it's a bit hard to know what to do.

    But id make a dodge em car ( you can buy one for $500 AUD) that be fun

    Is it considered a "power tool" If so you could go power tool drag racing... Its currently dominated by circular saws and angle grinders, but with the right gearing...
    Is this where the witty comment goes?

    you could chuck an inverter in the car and use it as a winch not that thats really useful not like you can put a 4wd or a person out of the mud lol.

    The Go-Kart idea could work but the problem is it's got set speed low medium high so its not the best idea.

    Maybe you could use it as a pulley for something like a convery belt or something cool in the shed.
