I notice the above ATV is chain driven.

I wonder how difficult it would be to get a large motor of the right KV, with teeth for that pitch chain...
eBike: Q100H on 16S with Phaserunner FOC Controller
eMotorscooter: Vectrix VX-1 on 36S
eCar: Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV... Waiting for warranty to expire
eHouse: 5.5kw On-grid solar with battery backup coming soon!

After 5 builds, the best advice I can give, is start with high quality products. I prefer http://www.ebikes.ca

Well, actually the OP was asking for suggestions...

I'm having a hell of a time handing over a dual MXUS DD build for a customer - it pulls like a train up our hills. Just about 25 amps front and 35 amps rear.
Aluminium core motors barely get warm and cost comparatively little.

So here is what I'd do with that budget.

- Inexpensive steel frame with the rear stays carjacked out a few mm to handle 3 inch fat tyres
- Fatbike cromo front fork if needed
- 70mm wide 24" rims with MAxxis Holy Rollers or similar
- MXUS V2 front and rear with cheap controllers and a single throttle
- Dual 60v batts paralleled for current capacity

I've still got front and rear motors left if it appeals ;)
I've got a dozen of those rims in dual wall too!

I have 4 wheels to work. Real fun is having 2, and riding on 1 a fair part of the course. :twisted:
Drifting my Quad is heaps fun, i spends a heap of time in a gravel pit jumping and and getting sideways, gets the heart going ...then come night, on go the spotlights two rifles and a shot gun.. can pile a dozen or more rabbits on the back even kangaroos fit on rear rack, don't think i could do this on a two wheeler even of i could walk lol
