Re: New 60v Build. What can i do next?

I removed the SLA from the trunk bag leaving the ping pack in it and chargers. I removed my water bottle and holder. Got a local fabricator to make a metal tray in the shape of a T with angle iron on the edges to act as a holder so the batteries dont slide out of the tray. One SLA battery it butted ...

Re: New 60v Build. What can i do next?

I got a ping pack wasnt able to get two like i orginally planned. I was supposed to get a 36v and a 24v 20ah packs. I ended up getting a 48v 20ah. And im going to pair it with two 12v 12AH SLA. They fit neatly in my trunk pack with room for chargers. I did load tests on a 20ah sla and the two 12AH s...

Re: New 60v Build. What can i do next?

I mysteriously came into some money.(whistles innocently looking at his plastic card) If i wanted to build something illegal but practical what would you buy. What voltage would you use. Lipo is a must obviously. Which hub motor. I was considering a Pheonix Cruiser or Racer on 26 Inch rim @ 72v mayb...

Re: New 60v Build. What can i do next?

It came with the kit. Its supposed to be a heavy duty rack that supports 50lbs... prob more if i wanted to push it. It pivots near the top. It attaches to the bolt that tightens the seat post. I was able to use it and keep the quick release lever in place on the seat and the rear axel. Im surprised ...

Re: New 60v Build. What can i do next?

The website one of you recommened. That controller looks pretty nice but i dont think i want such a high discharge current. Torque reason and distance. 60-100A would rape a ping pack and screw around with their bms. They already dont want me to wire them in series... imma do it anyway. Do you think ...

I ran it fine at 36V. Ran it fine at 48v. Ive been running it at 60V for about two months. Has a pretty good assiste...
