I wandered over here to your thread to check out your batteries, and I got caught-up reading about your bike. Its really awesome.
When I first encountered this site about 6 months ago, it was the first one I read, but I didn't know the meaning of all the info. Now that I understand it, I'm really impressed with your results. 10 amps to go 20mph is excellent.
I think it was a huge gain switching to a 20 inch tire. I always favor smaller tires for all ebikes because we use motors that spin at 3000 rpms, so we're always gearing down. It seems like you ccan never gear down enough. In your case you really benifited.
This chart shows that you hit your max efficiency at 40mph (top speed) I think that's an indication that the smaller tire really helped. WIth your bigger tire, your bike must have been running at lower efficiency--perhaps 85% because that would coencide with about the 33mph level. In my estimation, an eve smaller tire could offer a little more power and efficiency (not that I'm suggesting you switch again).
In one post you said that you were able to get about 30 amps from your packs, but I could swear that I saw a post of yours earlier saying you re-soldered your connections and you're now getting more amps. WHat is your battery power status now?
it seems like if you drew 2C (is that realistic?) you'd be getting 66amps! That's 4500 watts!
Does that thing go 50mph now?
My next mini-project is to re-FET the controller for 60-80 max amps, and have installed an adjustable limit so I can limit it to 35-40 amps until I can build a 23s4p emoli "sport" pack that can handle 80 amps.

Along these lines..
