An O.G. Gambler! Cool frames. Lots of adjustabilty. Keep an eye on the head tube's upper pinch bolt area. They like to crack there if not properly torqued. Since you're going for high speed you can run the head tube in its slack orientation (63 degrees IIRC). Or better yet, short shock it to drop the BB height and slacken at the same time.
What's your plan for batteries? Backpack or under the downtube?

sounds like a good back pack full of lipo is best bet. pack size optimised for short trips at high amps...and oh, dont forget the asbestos firewall in the backpack :D

Once you get over 18s 12ah on a battery backpack especially on a bike with lots of power it becomes fairly unsafe quickly depending on what you are doing. It gets heavy and makes flipping off backward a real danger
