    So go with a simple small electric motor... You don't need a lot with that cart you have... Too much power would be very dangerous. What about the one I linked you to? Not good enough?
    could i have that link again?

    And if i would get a better one or even 25mph maybe
    i can always try to make another with shocks and better wheels

    Took me about 1 minute to find with the search function. Here's a clue:

    ?, ?, ?
    The goose drank wine
    The monkey chewed tobacco on the streetcar line
    The line broke, the monkey got choked
    And they all went to heaven in a little rowboat

    found it... http://www.scooterpart.net/products.php?id=1063

    hey isnt there something you can get that you would plug into the wall in an outlet so that the electric would be sent instead of using a car?
    using like bluetooth or something?

    but do they sell ones for that so i wouldnt need to get 2 or 4 12V?

    It transmits the AC line. Just like putting an outlet on your gokart. Anything you can plug into your wall now, you can plug in then... Easy peasy.
