You’ll find rental kart setups, and home-made setups. ¬†that’s basically all there is out there right now.

The best option for racing would be to have a decent thermal management system, in addition to a spare battery pack or two.


Battery life will greatly depend on the track, and % of time spent on the throttle.


The Zero motorcycle ran an 11.4kWh battery and I would guess that you could get 10-15min out of it. They ran one – in production trim – up Pike’s Peak in about 12 minutes.
