Hey, it's an EV (in other words, "not a gasser" -- so no asbestos necessary here
) and it sounds like it's working great, in a compact, modular design incorporating spare parts too.
This may not pertain to your expectations, but if that system was mine, I'd be wondering how well the friction drive elements would scale to higher wattages -- say, 2,500 watts.
And also if the drive would slip on steep hills, in wet conditions, when riding over bumps, or similar such potentially friction-reducing situations. Perhaps a sheath over the roller, made of rubber, or other soft, sticky compound could help?
