    I think if you connect broken link one and broken link two together in series, you can double the torque of the motor.

    But first remember to crush the broken links up in to a fine powder! Otherwise you will probably make a fusion like this one:

    Well, if your motors are as broken as your links, then you aren't going anywhere.
    Post some links that actually take us to products and we might stand a chance of knowing what you are talking about. Mind-reading isn't my strong point.

    OH GOD, just buy a d@mn golfcart...... It seems to do everything your trying to do.... I am sure they have golf courses in Australia. Alot of golf courses only keep their carts for a certain amount of years then eventually get rid of them and replace them. Maybe you can find one that is in the process of switching them out and they will sell you one. I am sure if you point them to this thread they will feel so bad for you that they will give it to you.

    Watched your vid ausi,

    Your battery array will not generate enough amperage to move more than 10 or so pounds. You seem a bit confused in the video, but it appears you have a parallel-series circuit, that is, multiple parallel banks in series with one another. Making 12v is good though, you got that right. Electronics class will help you understand this stuff much better, reminds me of my first electronics class in 9th grade

    If you want to make a cart that is going to move you, here are my HONEST suggestions.

    Batteries: (minimum 4, 6 or 8 would be better, hooked in series-parallel)

    Optima deep cycle type



    engine:

    http://www.robotbooks.com/robot-motors.htm


    Minimum power to push you around is going to be 3hp.

    It's not going to be cheap!!!! what I have posted will get the job done but its going to cost you some $$$

    In addition to solar panels you may want to use a regenerative braking system, basically meaning having an alternator that is connected to each wheel, when you engage the brakes it actually engages the alternators which cause resistance slowing the cart and at the same time recharging the batteries.

    This is more useful info than I've seen posted in the last 600 posts so take it for what its worth.
