Panterra Fusion Moped Build

Postby ElectricGod » Fri Jul 07, 2017 10:15 pm

Geez NOT another EG build!!!

I was bored at work one day and so I got on craigslist and looked around at what was available in EV stuff and came across this 50CC sized electric moped for $160. After work I went over to the guys house. Conveniently he was a mile away from work. I looked it over for a few minutes, checked the suspensoin, brakes and general build quality of the machine. It's pretty decent despite the typical crappy Chinese welding work. The tires are flat and the controller is burned out, but the hub is supposedly good. I didn't really care. I knew I was going to pull it off and put whatever was the biggest hub I could get on it. So I paid the man some money, he gave me a working chordless electric lawn mower as a gesture of thanks for taking the moped off his hands. You can see the mower in a couple of the shots. Fine with me and thanks so much! I'm no where near ready to start building this out since I have the Currie to put back together and then finish up the XB-502 moped before I ever touch this. I found a 4000 watt Qsmotor for it so I thought I'd post up the start of the build thread. The moped has an insanely large battery box under the seat. Then under the floor is a space that for some reason they didn't bother making into a compartment. It's almost big enough to hold all the batteries for this EV all by itself. I'll probably put a complete pack in the box and then add a smaller pack under the floor for extended range if it seems necessary. I'd like to get 50 or 60 miles range out if it and top out around 60mph or better. I expect I will need to get this licensed and insured. It should be fast when done. I'm thinking of using my Sabvoton 6000 watt controller and running at 96 volts or 24S.

This is a 4000 watt motor. Since this moped takes 10" tires, that was the limiting factor. I simply looked for the largest motor I could get that would fit a 10" tire. This was it. The outer diameter of the motor can is 2X the size of the factory motor and about an inch wider while still making the same axle width. It ought to be impressive. This motor weighs about 50 pounds. That a lot of unsprung weight!

I wanted to see what this motor looked like so I took it apart. If anyone is interested in the internals of a V3 QSmotor...well here you go. It has 2 sets of halls and temperature sensors.

I haven't done it yet, but I intend to pull the motor apart, fill in around and behind the magnets with glue to make sure they are really stuck down. I bought cans of red electrical paint. I intend to paint everything with it to help keep things sealed up and weather proof. The motor will get its end plates drilled out so that air can get in. The motor will be ran at well over it's rated wattage so more cooling effect I can get into the motor the better. There's lots of room inside the shell. I think I will add aluminum fins to the cast inner structure. That will create more surface area to bleed off heat into the air stream coming in the holes in the side covers.
