    and now problem to use electricity form the battery of car witch is 12 V ?

    or if there any battery can used and able to recharge

    and my last questions


    which device I can use for increasing the speed and slow down

    I mean I want device that when I push it the speed increase and when increase more the pushing the speed is also increase and when I remove me foot the car will slow down

    so I want device which make the speed proportional to the pushing
    which is connected to the motor

    here's a link with "how to" for electric vehicles.

    here's a 1914 electric car, which proves you don't need complex electronics
