Dayum!!! Sometimes I even amaze myself!!!

Got the new controller on Monday, mounted it to the plate, and finished up the last of the cables and wiring... Hooked up the cables to the pack, set the body and seat on it, turned the key switch on, put it in "R", and backed it out of the garage under it's own power!!! Been scootin around the hood for the last few afternoons exercising the battery pack... Power & runtime have been slowly increasing.. Top speed by GPS is 26.8MPH, torque off the line is absoutely brutal!!! Performance is gradually improving as the batteries awaken from their nearly four month slumber..

Now to start accumulating the stuff to get it looking as good as it runs!!

Here is my new Ike casualty. Notice one of the rear view images. I discovered a twisted frame. I have my work cut out.

Wow clifton!!!!

With a frame as tweeked as that one is, I believe I'd be looking for a running stock cart, transfer the lift kit and wheels, and sell the rest for scrap.. That frame is not gonna be easily or cheaply straightened.. And if you're planning on adding some speed to that cart, I'd be a bit leery of the safety of that frame unless it's straightened by a professional..

I only paid $700 for it. heck the wheels tires and lift are worth that alone. The batteries are 2008 Trojan T875 and I think I can get them going again. Another $500 in value. I really would like to untwist the frame. I am strip it down to the frame and try and twist it back with a hydraulic jack and some hold downs. I hope I can do this, I think a frame shop will rape me on it. I might try and find another frame, if I cant. I am not real happy about it, but oh well it is a done deal. If I can get the frame back and I going to put a bad *** motor and controller on it. It had a stock 225 amp controller with a D&D high speed motor. I talked with someone who said it is a wonder the stock controller did not burn up. I can do the paint and body as I am experienced with the spray rig. This will be a much more challenging project than predicted when I bought it. I will be sure to post progress.

I agree you got 700 in parts, did you get a charger? those things cost money?

$700

I only gave $200 for mine because I could scrap it for that and break even if there were major frame or axle issues.. I wouldn't count on the batteries coming back to life after what they've been thru..

Do us a favor and start your own build thread and keep us posted with plenty of pics..
