Gwhy the Aerodrive motor you linked is smaller then the one i am planing on using in terms of weight, so the motor i have should be able to handle more power or atleast the same amount i would have thought. Thanks for your input on the batteries Gwhy, its kinda the direction i am heading
One guy has done a Peugeot scooter with the 80-100 turnigy in a CVT and to me for my application thats over kill, and the guy in the link you have isnt using a CVT so he would need to use a 80-100 sized motor, gears = Godlike, CVT = horny Goddess like on a electric motor
To hold a speed of 50km/h i would need roughly 1kw, what my current bike uses plus abit for the added weight and CVT, So having 2-3kw continues power in the motor i will be fine, the main question is how much burst can it take, ie will a HV160 blow it up with the minimum amps i can restrict it to been 160amps

Bluefang wrote:I now have the ESCs in my posession, not too happy about them as they dont have any obvious USB connection. But they look solid enough to be ok with the smaller motor. And i got a delivery of batteries, still trying to decide if i need 1.6kwh worth or if 800kwh will be enough.
Also my engineer has come up with another way of doing the crank, i am no longer doing a direct connection but going to use a belt drive from outside the intake to a pully mounted onto the crank, it works out to cost the same and from my engineers perspective its ALOT easier to make sure its all true and straight similar to another scoot build on these forums. He is going to removed the large counter weight section of the crank and trim the end shafts down to 17-18mm and he will fit a sleave over the whole lot with a total diameter of ~22-24mm with sections at each end trimmed to 20mm. True it all up and hand it to me for $100 And now i just have to buy some timing pulleys for the belt drive(found a supplier in Aus who seems to be priced reasonably with express shipping too http://shop.ebay.com.au/greynurse2001/m ... 4340.l2562) and make a mount for the motor that i will design to hold a larger 80-100 motor too if needed, muhahaha
