Can you weight one pair with plastics?
Want to know how heavy it will be if I will use 3 pairs.
Not much. Somewhere between 1 soft taco and 3 crunchy tacos in weight. :mrgreen:

Re: Common high current connectors - and my opinion on them

Picked up these 0/1ga welding connectors. Much cheaper then Anderson of similar amp ratings.

Re: Black Friday Sales ?

Just missed a 25% off sale at EBK. Likely that offer was just for those on their e mail list. There may be more sales, till he's sold out enough stock to close out the year. But certain things may go out of stock, particularly certain sizes of battery, soon. That's been the typical pattern. I don't...

Why not mount the batteries under the steering? Wouldn't that help with getting more weight on the front tires?

Check out the Zilla controllers.

Stay away from the kelly controllers. While they have there place. They are overrated and do not have that seat of the pants torque pull you are looking for.

Re: 3S4P Vs 4P3S - Parallel/Series Vs Series/Parallel

Appreciate the reply I will be sure and keep an eye on balancing. My plan is to do option 2 and keep them modular so I can change them up or put then on a different project. Plan is to balance charge them 4S w/4 parallel.

Re: Any sealed/waterproof scooter motors?

You might investigate if a submersible pump can be repurposed as a lower-voltage motor. I don't know if any are built for 12V/24V DC, but maybe worth a look. A 3000-RPM motor that runs on 120V, might run at 1200-RPMs at 48V. Many "universal" motors run fine on either AC or DC... If your needs are f...
