Yes, I heard that soldering should be really really bad for the cells, so spot welding it is. But I will save this for last. My knowledge about batteries limited, I only build some RC battery packs back in the day.
Tell me more master?! 16kW, that's insane, what kind of controller did you use? Any more tips for overrunning these hub motors?John in CR wrote: ↑Mar 18, 2018 9:57 pmIf you've got smooth roads a little 10" wheeled scooter is a blast to ride. I pump 16kw peak into mine with a 3kw high efficiency hubbie using the smallest 10" scooter tire I could find. My only complaint is that even with about 2" of rear suspension travel those 16" OD wheels are only a nice ride on the smoothest roads. I love going motorcycle hunting with it.
You might need cooling in the form of ferrofluid or an internal fan. More on that in this thread:
