Daymak C5 Blast is actually the fastest Go-Kart on the planet. Who needs one? No one. Who wants one? Everybody. The thrill of going faster then ever before. One step higher. This Go-Kart can almost fly!
This Go-Kart from the Canadian company Daymak is 100% electric and will reach 0 to 60 miles per hour in less then 1.5 seconds! The EDF motors help reduce the weight of the Go-Kart making extremely light and fast.
The compnay likes to roll out other cool products, that will take us to a completely different dimension. But today offers the go-Kart in two version. The normal one costs 10.000 dolar with a 48V/10 kW brushless electric engine, 2400 Watt-hour combined Lithium Panasonic Cells and a Daymak drive 96V 400A controller, acelerating in 3,9 seconds from 0 to 60 miles/hour. The Ultimate with the same engine, batteries and controlers costs nearly 60.000 dolars and accelarte in 1,5 seconds from 0 to 60 miles per hour.
And how he get it? The go-kart is flanked by four Electric Ducted Fan motors (EDF) - a type of propeller mounted within a cylindrical duct - providing forward thrust, meanwhile other eight EDF mounted in the body provides upwards trust - so a kart that weights about 200 kg seems to weight just 100 kg.
