9C sidecovers for an ES member, milled with slots in the new jig, oddly enough the bolt pattern is identical to the HX series xtalyte motors
only found that out after making a second identical jig
The bit got a "flake" stuck to it and caused a small disturbance in the force
it only succeeded in scratching the paint tho
But Anywho down to business, assuming the deal goes thru, the first 6 lucky ES members that send me a PM can reserve one of three 54
04s or three 54
03s done up with all the mods. Here is some info on this bad-arse modded motor:
motor core cost: TBDAxle
mods, Bigger/smoothed wire groove, bigger axle
flats, all tempered and case hardened $20-$60
milled sidecovers $40
Wiring upgrades done with Polarwire Arctic Ultraflex Blue in either 10 or 8 AWG. Want to know why I use this wire, just ask $35-$45
Hall sensor replacement done with genuine Honeywell SS41s, high-temp glue and wiring $40
All the mods done for 35 bucks off the total, $150 even.
These motors should be capable of some ridiculous horsepower, 10-15 kw is easy for these guys.
 also, 45 bucks for matching clamping torque arms, also tempered and case-hardened. Built to fit
