    I suppose a congrats is in order! I'm hoping you will still be able to assist occasionally with prior customers requests ?
    I was also hoping to add the BMS and bluetooth interface to my build soon... If you are not going to move forward with it, maybe I can pick up where you left off?
    I'm getting close to the time of pulling the trigger on that big purchase.
    Current rides: '96 Honda Ohlins VFR, '03 Cannondale C440R, '03 Cannondale Cannibal, '06 Yamaha 450 Wolverine 4x4
    Current builds: eVOR.v3.3
    WORX.VOR.v3.2

    Customers prior to closing, I can assist with whatever I sold them as a package, just not additional requests.

    For the bluetooth project, that's being handled by Sportdevices:

    Might ping them to see where it stands, I've not had time lately to work on it.

    Sorry for lack of updates. This took a few turns. Many of you know that I had a business selling motors and controllers. I was put into contact with Topkart to supply them some components. Eventually, I worked with EVDrive (in Oregon) and Topkart to develop a kit that should be available later this year, called the Ion. I'm abandoning my Swiss Hutless cart because we'll have a Topkart chassis.

    Here's an article:

    If you are going to make a dedicated kit for karting in that config, I suggest you have motor cases mad with bigger fins ( even bigger underneath) and the fins parallel to the wind flow. The difference in cooling will not be trivial. A airflow directing cowling for the motor that will also protect the driver from contacting the motor may be worth consideration as well.

    They were from a US recycler of batteries. As far as I know they don't ship internationally. I found him on Diyelectriccar.

    I actually got a job working for Cascadia Motion, so I basically put my project on hold, and I think due to Corona, Topkart has put this on hold as well.
