Hello, I am building a large DC motor for a Go-kart.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a question: How would I know how much voltage and current (the maximum values I can use) I need to make the DC motor work and spin?

I'm guessing the armature size and the winded wire's length depends on how much voltage and current you introduce into the motor so I want to get the sizes and lengths according to the voltage and current I will use.

Thanks!
