nice guess on the RPM http://forums.aeva.asn.au/smileys/smiley32.gif the good thing about making it electric would be you can make it run faster than you need and just control the speed you go with the joystick so its spinning at 1200 then you want about 2400 to 3000 RPM would make it really usable ...

RWD with rear engine?

if you do it clutch less you can remove the bell housing and lose about 6 inch in length then you can use a diff yoke and a gearbox yoke together (no tail shaft at all) and you could fit it all under the tray

then balance it out with filling the engine bay with battery's

its a 40 to 1 drive so to get 1Hp at the wheel you only need about 1/39th(allowing a bit for friction) of a hp at the motor . ok maby a bit more and 100 amp is most likely way to much considering a golf buggy has about a 1/8 hp motor runing through a bout a 4 to 1 diff and it can get up to around 40...
