1kWh would be three sets of 20, or 60 cells at 15A. So 2kWh would be ~$60 in cells ~30A...

I need lots and lots of cells, especially if I'm putting used cells in fused series.

I've got an old Puch moped, besides it weighing 100lbs I think it'd be a perfect candidate.

Be wicked cool to have a electric ride for next summer, I'd be able to cut so many trails and sidewalks for shortcuts. Want mad torque, moped needs wheelies

30A at 72v isnt bad for a moped

We have one of these snap-on mini choppers we are going to convert to electric soon, and paint it to match our car.

I think where i live is sometimes like driving in a 3rd world country, except traffic flows extremely well and accidents are rare. Hardly ever fatal.
I only think this, because driving rules and laws just don't seem to matter to most people.

They timed the light. I do that sometimes, when I can see no other traffic, and I can see the yellow light for the cross traffic. They cut it kind of close, though.

I do this one too, every night. Go slow up to a light on a light sensor, then get back on as the other direction goes yellow.

I have been pulled over and given a written warning for turning right into the middle lane as you've done there, instead of the far right lane.

That was at 4am too, far far less traffic. Cop must have been bored.

Oh they were through that light. Timed or not.

Plus I was doing 10mph over, I don't think I'd get ticketed for picking the second lane when coming out of a driveway.

The word/line spacing on that decal is really irritating.

Okay, what the **** are we doing wrong guys?




Why is it that the escort crowd can put down 500 wheel on a bone stock BP, but we can't even touch 300?

Big turbo. Late spool. Not much peak torque.

Also, fwd something something...less traction...something something. No race tracks.

They blow motors all the time.
