According to its makers, the Daymak-C5-Blast go-kart will be the fastest electric go-kart in the world. “We plan to achieve 0 to 60 mile per hour (0-96 kilometre per hour) in less than 1.5 seconds! It will be a little faster than the Tesla P100D. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the current record is being held by Hochschule Osnabrück Institut MuT, which was clocked at 0 to 60 in 2.635 seconds,” says Aldo Baiocchi, President of Daymak.

The C5 Blast Go-Kart features a liquid cooled 10,000 watt motor, Daymak Drive controller, 8 EDF motors for combined output of 96 kg of upwards thrust and 4 rear EDF motors for 60kg of forward thrust. The go-kart weighs approximately 200kg, but after turning it on using the EDF motors and Daymak technology to balance the weight, it goes down to approximately 100kg, making it light and fast.

Faster
“We could actually make it lighter and faster and at some point the go-kart would start floating like the Star Wars land speeder or we could add wings and it would fly. Speed will not be an issue and we think we can even go eventually under 1 second from 0 to 60, making it faster then any vehicle in existence,” Baiocchi continued.

“This technology could be applied to any vehicle and give boosting power unheard of before. If you want to go faster call us! We will make your car fly!”

Daymak’s plan is to have Guinness Book of World Records to officially validate their current statement soon.

Want one? The Daymak-C5-Blast go-kart will be built in Toronto, Canada. There will be two versions offered: 1.) Daymak C5 Blast regular with only 1 motor retailing for $9,999 USD and 2.) Daymak C5 Blast EDF model for $59,995 USD.

  1. Lifting a 200kg kart into the air with 100kg thrust doesn’t reduce it’s mass by 100kg… Fundamental physics… So it will still accelerate like a 200kg kart but have the traction of a 100kg kart!

    Better to direct the thrust downwards and get the traction equivalent of a 300kg kart for 200kg mass!

    • Agreed and by calculation you are going to need more than 50kW peak power so those 4 motors are going to need to provide another 10kW of forward thrust each.
