Hi. This fault could have a few different causes.
Does your hand control have a dial for the turtle to rabbit speed control, or does it have an up button and a down button?. I have had a few dial ( potentiometer ) pots play up, and cause similar problems.
The fault could also be faulty Battery or Motor connector. These terminals develope a bad connection and can get that bad that the plastic housing starts to melt with heat. Also check battery terminals are tight.
Do the batteries last? I have had a few machines with a burnt out motor.These often still drive but only slowly, and the batteries fade quickly.
Good luck. Neil.

I have a problem with a Drive Mini Phantom scooter. If you picture the speed control dial as a clock with the slow (turtle) position at 7:00 and the fast (rabbit) position at 5:00, the scooter does not...

It could be battery problems or ECU problems i dont feel the problem stems from the dial or variable switch. if possible try and get a current tester and test how much power the battery's are actually producing. other than those suggestions i dont have any other fixes at present, keep me posted, best regards

Will not rev up to full rpms when trying to use?

Open up the high speed jet a turn or 2 and see what happens, you have two jets there with "H" on one and "L" on the other, open up the H and it should open the high speed jet up. If you don't see the l and h, then it will be marked , S and F, for slow and fast, some even have the turtle and rabbit. Just open it up. Hope this helps.

Shoot at speed

The sports mode on a DSLR just picks high ISO and fast shutter speeds for you. Go Karts are very fast subject to focus on, so there are two techniques you can try.

One is to set your focus to manual mode and pre focus a point where the car will pass through. Set the camera to multi shot mode and just before the kart gets to the pre-determined point, hit the shutter button. The camera will fire off a few shots, then review later on a computer to chooset the best one out of the sequence.

Another way is set your focus mode for AI-Servo or Focus Tracking mode, this will enable the lens to track moving subjects (as single shot mode is way to slow to keep up with karts). Go to the slowest part of the track to get more sucess.

One problem you maybe having is that the shutter speed is too slow for karts. Being indoors the lighting will be very poor, so a super high ISO rating will need to be used to get faster shutter speeds. Having a lens with a very wide aperture (like f2 of f2.8 or even less) will enable you to get faster shutter speeds because they let in more light.

Good luck.

What does the turtle on the dash lights mean?

Are the lights on a timer? Generally a "Turtle" means slow and a "Rabbit" is fast. Did try reading the owners manual?

After you do the above, try to clean out the fuel line. It may only be letting in a small amount no matter the throttle control.
