    Thanks Michael for taking this over. I regret not being able to finish it, but I feel this is the best for me, my geography and battery technology (per $) at this time.

    Thanks all. My wife and I...

    I feel that I'm at a real cross-roads here. The battery would be the next thing to tackle (besides the chassis updates) and that would be my next major purchase.

    I live in the continental US's...

    Torque: shooting for ~85 ft/lbs, Power ~50 hp, & range ~40-50 miles. I’m trying to hit about 60% of what a newer used Zero sells for, but for a little less $$ & learn along the way too.

    So, if anyone else comes across an early Zero and wants to make it more usable (read as: update everything), I’m hoping this thread can be a resource. I have found (at least) suitable replacements...

    Couple of questions for the more enlightened among us:
    1) If I use 13x Nissan Leaf cells, that would provide a more 80%-to-20% voltage of about 96vdc, yes? I want to make sure my thinking on this...

    Well, I’m dusting off the Zero project. I was breifly seduced by ICE again. I’m a recovering petrol-head...

    More updates as they come in.

    I'm leaning towards a 96vdc system again, so I believe that would be 24s configuration. For about the same $$ as the Leaf cells mentioned above (84vdc & ~$1700), I can get 480 Tesla cells (not...

    The Motenergy ME1507 motor, although designed for the Sevcon Gen 4 controller, doesn't have to be used with it specifically. I found a reverse trike build...

    Decided on a 96vdc system (12x Nissan leaf cells) with a Re-Volt RV160-Pro (same as project Blue-Smoke) wound to 56KV. Kelly has a 500A sine-wave...

    How hard is it to program a smooth operating sin/cos encoder controller?

    I'm having difficulty finding a motor within my power requirements, size and ease of programming.

    Seems I can find...

    Alas, an AC20 won't fit in a Zero frame. Well, not without doing modifications that I'm unwilling to do.

    Shame the go-kart with the DLC hasn't posted up in a while...

    Ok, give it to me straight: Is this Agni 95R any good?

    Looks like the ME0913 is almost identical to the ME1302 other than the 1302 is liquid cooled. I was thinking that could be the smarter option since I live in New Mexico...

    Only $ spent thus far was the $300 for a clean titled '10 Zero S.

    Your specs sound like they'd work for me. Can you link some photos por-favor?

    I see. So, Jayls4, what motor could be swapped in for highway driving?

    (What's nice is that no appreciable $ has been spent thus far...) :)

    Ok, so a 450-600A controller for a brushed motor. Check!
    Would it be better to run 9 Leaf cells at 8v/ea for 72v total, or 10 Leaf cells at 7.2v ea?

    So the ME1003 is VERY similar in spec to an Agni 95R?

    Ok. Damn. Didn't know that 95R would do THAT!

    Controller & battery pack suggestions?

    Hey cmcnall,

    Any thoughts on a controller and what voltage/amperage that an Agni 95R can take?

    That could work. Presently the Agni isn't responding to a 12vdc input so I was fearing the worst...

    How would I best determine if the Agni has bit the dust?
