    Oh yeah, I totally agree.

    I just was hoping to spend closer to 100/shock.
    Maybe that's too low, but if I have to spend more, it's going to be a while before I can get this rolling.

    That's not a bad idea, but it is a bit pricey. Maybe I'll get that later down the line.

    I re-did the 3d design already, it only took a few minutes.
    That's why I made it out of plastic the first time; so that I could test fit before having it machined out of aluminum.

    I haven't weighed it yet, but I would guess around 75lbs. It's pretty heavy.
    A lot of unsprung weight, I know, but I don't plan on taking it to the track so I'm not particularly worried about it.

    It's definitely not safe or reliable. You lose any balancing ability except while charging, and if one of your cells individually goes too low, it has no protection.

    There's not actually a lot of gap. It's about the width of the torque arm on either side.
