    1. Hey Richard,

      Thanks for the comment!
      No, generally speaking, go-karts do not have a differential.
      Are you building a go-kart yourself?

  2. Hi,
    How does a person make the go kart (electric) move in reverse using a speed controller?
    I am building an electric go kart and needed some advice.

    1. Hi Rayhan,

      Thanks for reaching out.

      To answer your two questions, the size of the motor matters and you should adjust it to the weight of your kart. You’ll need a speed controller for easy reverse functionality.
      You can check out the buyer’s guide to the best electric go-kart motors. Scroll down all the way until you see the buying guide section. That should give you a basic idea.

      Feel free to reach out if you have more questions!
