The Crippler: When Your Scooter Isn't Fast Enough

There have been numerous posts on this blog of wheelchairs being fitted with powerful motors, gas or electric, to allow them to go fast.  But what if you use a scooter?  The people at Lux Performance, a race car team, managed to get their hands on a scooter and, being a race team and all, fitting dropped in a 48 volt Etek motor to create a scooter they call "The Crippler".  It transformed an ordinary scooter into a 40+ MPH, hill-climbing, wheelie-riding super scooter.  Check out the clip and see their results.
