HAHAHahaa! Okok.

The immediate plan is to complete the R5e first, and not sell off the VF500F for parts.

I'm thinking a very naked streetfighter/cafe (won't be needing those parts back, Tango), built for high-speed handling and performance. Not vintage. Blade Runner meets Terminator.

I'm using the NEMA-C motor mount, so I can bolt in the motor of choice. I'm leaning towards the new Motenergy that Ed's using. I have to think about the controller, but I'd like something that can handle over 90V this time around, and to tell the god's honest, I'm leaning towards a real battery/bms system like A123/Manzanita, if I can make the $ numbers work. I will not be picking the R5e, though, for parts this time. New motor, controller, maybe an interchangeable battery system with the R5e...

Ultra light weight. Top speed over 120mph. Don't care about range. Street legal.

At any rate, I'ma start building once the R5e is complete, maybe in the Fall. :cool:
