I have started a Motor & Controller topic to help with my selection:
Motor and Controller goals are:
Top Speed: 120km/h
Acceleration: Punchy but not drag strip stupid. I would like to be able to keep with a 400-500cc ICE off the line.
Target Curb Weight is < 350lbs
I weigh about 145 with my helmet and jacket on.
I would appreciate any help translating that into kwh/mile!
UPDATE: Decision made. I will start with an Alltrax 7245 controller and a Motenergy Mars ME 1003 motor. Based on other builders experiences, I plan to push both a bit up to an 80-88 volt system for a bit higher top end.
I acquired a used Controller for a great price from a fella on DIYelectriccar.com
I got a contactor from fellow elmoto-er RobO, A great guy to deal with!
I have bought the motor, and fuse, precharge resistor, and Diode form EVDrives.com in my neighboring WA state.
