Years ago I had a neighbor who built an electric go-cart for his two daughters. He used a 12 V. automobile starter motor and an 12 V. battery. For “throttle” he used a surplus switch of some kind that allowed off and three voltage settings. Worked like a charm! Those girls drove that thing all over the neighborhood in front yards and back yards. It was a two-seater and easily had enough power to take the girls up and down hills.
