Re: Can I use 2 batteries on a golf cart?

If you keep the 6V batteries in series to make a 12V battery, then wire that 12V in parallel with the golf cart's system, you'll be fine. The only thing to watch out for is if your lights use more power than the cart's alternator produces. If you have everything connected together, you could kill a...

Can I use 2 batteries on a golf cart?

HELP! Of course I put off my mutant vehicle till the last minute so I am stressing out. So I have a gas golf cart. Last year, I had (2) 6v cart batteries (Trojan 105) that I wired up to make a 12 v battery. I used that to power up my LED strips, but I was always stressing out about them going dead a...

Re: TriMule MKIII Mutant Vehicle Build

Congrats on the approval. That looks like it was a TON of work. What happens if you put all of that work into it, and they don't approve you? I just saw a huge, 2 story art car that was denied after being on the playa for 3 years. Have you been approved every year?

Re: 2nd year to Burning Man and my first Mutant Vehicle

I was asked by a bunch of people when I was on the playa about the mutant car build process. I decided to throw together a "How To" video of what I did on my mutant vehicle. This is a little time lapse video I made last week to document the process. It was a fun project. Hope the video inspires a bu...

Re: 2nd year to Burning Man and my first Mutant Vehicle

Hey! Thanks for posting this. I checked out your video, it is sweet. Looks like you guys had a great time sober anyway! Just the same I am curious about the details of your build process and timeline to make it happen. Also the resources you relied on the most to venture in this direction. I'm also...

2nd year to Burning Man and my first Mutant Vehicle

Hello all. So this year was my 2nd burn and my wife’s first. I thought it would be cool to try to make a mutant vehicle as my gift to the playa and share a little bit of my thoughts with you if you are considering doing it yourself. I had a great time building it, but it was a lot of work and a lot ...

What is your opinion on this years Exodus? (2014)

So I am wondering what everyone's thoughts on Exodus will be like this year. With vehicle passes limited to a supposed 35,000 I am wondering if that is significantly fewer cars than years past, or is it the same? The first time I went to Burn Man in 2012, I left at about 6am the morning after the ma...
