The cells are rated conservatively by GM at 7.8C, Yabert's tests of Volt packs on the DiyEv car forum suggest a higher C rate, 15+ C!.
$1,400 plus $360 freight. Still over $1k less than new lead!
Even tho your going gas, could you still share your build with us?kfong wrote:Unfortunately, I will be going gas on this build. I have too many electrics at the moment and can't get the range I want. I will be looking into how easy it will be to change out giving me the best of both since the motor mount is just 4 bolts.

Hey Gary. Good to see you here!Gary Krysztopik wrote:I have a motoped frame and one of Matt's drives, and I'm waiting for the rest of the kit. I started an unofficial Electric Motoped page and group on facebook. I'm building it as open source and posting my progress as well as trying to keep track of other builds. For anyone else building or interested in building one of these please join up.

Motopeds are still available on the market and available as a frame kit or complete motored bike (ice engine).. the inventor, Cam Woods sold his patent design to pitbike company Motovox and they are still in production.. there is also now a licensed usa manufacturer in Sturgis South Dakota :
