Re: Your Creation's Before & After Pics

SM, you might consider these as well. Sure there are more that I didn't think of. But these are all great builds, especially when you look at the time of building. Not many e-bikes like these back then. Specialized Big Hit FSR with midmount http://i164.photobucket.com/albums/u10/tench8/Bighit/P1000...

Re: What happened to Nikola One Semi?

Dont forget about regen. A 60,000 pound machine hurtling down a hill @ 60mph can fully recharge a 400v 150 ah pack pretty quick. We were using LTO's on several of our prototype platforms due to their higher c rate. We tried 300, 400, and even a few 700 volt( :bigthumb: ) pack designs during the test...
