Get the 5S packs and run 15S. The stock controller handles it well.

Yes, but you also need a 6x charge cable like this.

Can I just add some solder to the shunt and raise up amp draw that way? I know my li-ion batt is rated for 30A continuous and 40A peak.

I added a tiny bit of electronic solder, it may have sped it up a little bit, but not too much difference. Should I use thick solder, or is the computer/electronic solder enough?

I put some more solder acceleration is pretty fierce now especially with some pedaling, even without pedaling its not bad.

Will moving up to a 15s lipo battery improve performance or will I need a upgraded controller as well?

You will not need a new controller to go to 15s. Both acceleration and top speed will increase going from 12s to 15s. A rough guess is top speed will be about 3-6 mph faster than 12s.

I just realized that the lipos use the 4mm bullet connectors but currently my li-ion bat and controller uses the anderson connector. Are there any adapters for the bullet and anderson connectors?

It's wire and connectors. You can make anything you want easily or possibly buy them already made. You can search for them as good as me. Personally, I'd cut the PP connectors off and use 4mm bullets everywhere.

Just want to confirm if this charger will work with a 15s pack. http://www.hobbypartz.com/75p-1220-char ... PAod10MAPw

Or this http://www.all-battery.com/TenergyBatte ... 224-1.aspx
Also aside from a cycleanaylst, what can I use to monitor the volts on the lipo packs. My yescomusa kit comes with a LCD display with has a battery indicator.

The 300W Thunder 1220 will charge up to a 12s pack in series. To charge a 15s pack, you need to parallel charge them as 5s. So yes, it will work. The other is just a 2A 126W bulk charger. It won't balance, but will charge the pack. Just slower and not as safe. And it's very expensive for what you get. You can get twice the power at that price easily.
http://www.bmsbattery.com/alloy-shell/2 ... arger.html
BTW, I don't recommend bulk charging rc lipo if you don't know what you're doing. It can be dangerous, and one should take precautions doing it.

Heres a clip of my bike running, I'm just looking for a bit more speed and range. Thats why I'm interested in the 15s lipos. Probably going to get the thunder charger, 5s lipo packs, power supply, wiring adapters/harness.

Im guessing the sensor goes in before the crank and the magnet is post crank?
