Just combine enough batterys to get 36 volts, very simple.

Electric seems better anways, all it requires is a charge and that's it. Much cheaper, while more efficient.

Two motors? lol

Sounds like you need 3 12V car batteries or enough to supply 500W, don't know what you would need in that respect. Would probably make things easier with just one motor and a chain to a gear on a solid axle on back, those electric motors are real torquey.

basically, i just want as much power as i can get out of it, would car batteries work? and how would i recharge them?
