Good evening all,
Some years ago I purchased a faulty mobility scooter, with a view to converting it to a battery powered go cart. Many years have passed, and I have not made any progress with it.
Is there anyone in the group that may be able to assist in resolving the electronics issues with me?
I can confirm that the motors are in working order. I don't mind replacing the electronics, but would welcome someone elses view before I follow this path.

Many thanks in advance
Suki

I don't think able to solve electronic issues on a scooter, but keep me in the loop as it sounds interesting for the perspective my EV conversion project. 
I could have some spare components too depending on the state and specifications of your scooter/go cart.
Cheers 
Carlo
