  • 24V 250W motors?

    I am trying to make an electric go-kart. I have limited knowledge about these things and I am still learning. I had 2, 24V 250w electric motors that had a gear ratio of 11:68 (11 teeth on the motor, 68 teeth on the drive shaft). I connected 2 24V batteries to the motors with a switch, but the vehicle didn't move. I got 2 more motors to increase the force I could put into the driveshaft. Now I have 4 24V 250w electric motors and the driveshaft still won't turn. I am planning on getting a motor controller to regulate the speed, but I don't know if that will fix the problem. I also don't know what impact adding more motors has on the system.
