A hobby turns into an obsession

Hello everyone. I was told about this forum by someone at another forum that I visit occasionally.

Anyway, here are a couple of pictures of my ride. You can see more pictures of the transformation at My Webpage

The cart is a 2002 with an EMP 2 speed motor, a CD player, 12V accessory battery and some other goodies.

By the way, I did not copy Gorno's cart. At least not intentionally. Also, this site is much easier to post picture and site links than the other guys' site.

Great cart!!! Gotta love that color!

Great pictoral on your site too. So, the EMP 2 speed is really that good? 21 mph on regular diameter tires is great! Is that motor rated for 48v?

Hi Gorno. 21 mph is my best estimate with a stopwatch on the most level street I have in my neighborhood. EMP claims that the motor is good for 23mph with stock tires. I don't think mine is running at 23, but 21 is still pretty impressive.

I don't know if it's safe to run an EMP motor at 48 volts. Give them a call at 1-877-455-1599.

I got the wheels and tires from a seller on eBay called "rockytopcarts". I was very impressed with their low prices and speedy delivery. My set was only $295.00 plus $39 shipping. They also have some really cool 12" wheel/tire combos for around $400 - $500.

Here's the link to their eBay store:

Rocky Top Carts

Thank you for the compliments,
I bought my wheels from Rocky Top as well off thier ebay page. I had them within a week of Buy-it-now, mounted, inflated w/lugs & center caps.
