Re: Need motor for a Go kart build

Ended up buying a Motenergy ME0201014201 and pairing it to a Sabvoton 72v 12kw controller.

Re: Need motor for a Go kart build

Thanks will look into it. Maybe paired up with two greentime controllers at 80A each should be a blast and not too expensive..

Need motor for a Go kart build

Looking for something like the Motenergy ME0907. Willing to entertain other ideas, but need something that will run at least 2-3kw continuous and the more peak the merrier. Located in new york, can pay via paypal. Let me know what you've got!

em3ev bulk chargers with switches

does anyone who has one of their controllers with the switches to pick 100% 90% or 50% SOC ever opened it up to see how their switch changes the output voltage? I'm trying to see if its worth buying their bulk charger or if its just a switch with an inline resistor.

Re: Who uses Slip Charge mode on their controller? I love i

I think I might be missing something here. With slip charge mode enabled, what I've noticed it that you don't get any current back to the battery until the throttle is completely let off. Zombiess, are you saying that when you have slip charger enabled, if you let throttle down to 50% but are travel...

Yes, 16" moped tires. SR714.. love them. Makes riding at 35mph extremely comfortable and not nerve wracking. Whenever I take a turn, I always put the pedal away from the ground. I never pedal this bike and don't plan to unless I run out of juice, which I am careful to avoid. I'm actually looking for...

I don't have the total weight. I can only say that it is definitely between 60lbs and 90lbs.. probably closer to the upper limit. I will definitely check eventually though, as I am planning a second build with lighter gauge steel. Speaking of the the steel, it is 3/4" square 14 gauge tubing. Definit...

Re: Phase vs battery current for most efficient setup

One odd thing that I have noticed is that the current continues to climb, whereas, expected would be 40a then taper off.. i see mine go from 30a and while accelerating will slowly climb to 40a then drop back down to 20a cruising. anyone see anything like this? maybe i should get a video.

Re: Phase vs battery current for most efficient setup

Thanks. Yeah, I modded my R12 to give regen at 20s lipo, so I'll have to adjust for that on the LVC. On the EM3ev program, the instructions come so that what you see isn't really what you get. You get the battery amps to 32.5A in order to get 65A battery current. So I wouldn't want to set it to 65A ...

Re: Phase vs battery current for most efficient setup

Just downloaded XPD. However, I don't see the EB3xx configs available. I see that you can create one yourself.. I also see that you can set overcurrent to 0s. Do you have to worry about dividing or multiplying anything or is what you see what you get? Cause when em3ev gives you the program, you have...

Re: Winterizing your ebike

Is your garage heated? I think that's a big deciding factor. If I could have a place to keep my bike that would keep the batteries warm, ready for riding, I don't think I'd have the voltage sag issues that I see from trying to pull 3kw from a 72v10ah pack when it is 40 degrees out. I noticed that ev...

I love ebiking a lot, its just that commuting I need something that is convenient. It's a lot more convenient to hop in a car in the winter.

Re: Winterizing your ebike

I've thought of a system to water cool the hub and use the batteries as a heat sink. But this only works when the temperatures are low outside. Here in NY, our summers are too warm to make that system possible but if I lived in Canada or something I'd do that to allow the use of lipos.

Re: Winterizing your ebike

With the low temperatures, I see my lipo suffering badly. It suffers almost as much as I do in the cold.. I still ride it every day, but I know that once it starts snowing I won't be riding anymore.. just too dangerous with NY drivers around. But it seems like all I have to do is check the voltage e...

My first ebike battery was a 36v10ah from ebay as well.. it lasted me quite a while. Though they're not gonna be good if you want anything more than pedal assist, they serve their purpose well if you want to use them as packs which will help you while you pedal. They cant put out any decent current....

Phase vs battery current for most efficient setup

I was reading through some threads on phase/battery current.. the general consensus is to keep phase current about 2.5x battery current. And with a block time of 1 second, this is now setups come "stock". Then I also read, specifically from mwkeefer, that lowering the phase current to just 1.5x batt...

Re: ZombieSS's Official Greyborg Warp build thread LOTS OF P

zombiess, is there a bearing where the bottom bracket meets with the swingarm? And am I correct in assuming that the the swingarm comes in two pieces and once secure onto the bottom bracket, the bolts in the swingarm keep the two pieces together?
