Re: first post. Looking for some scooter upgrade guidance

So I thought I would post a picture to show you what it looks like and what I’m working from. I took it out for a steady run today in the countryside as I attached my sons child seat ( and child) to it so I could keep up with my wife as she ran 7 miles. Lots of fun! http://i1377.photobucket.com/albu...

I currently have a 80w AC ( overlander) lipo charger which was fine for my RC days as it maxed out at 6 amps for charging but if I was going down the route of 5 sets of lipos ( 4s 16000mah 10c pe...

Re: first post. Looking for some scooter upgrade guidance

From the info I have pulled so far the simplest and cheapest would be to buy a Kelly controller although I don't know which one as I'm unsure what the highest level of amps I could ask of the stock motor would be.
