WOW, ANOTHER LIPO USER! Awesome lol, I was busy when you started this, and I just got around to seeing it. I have also been using lipo batteries since they came out, we actually used the expensive as hel* lithium manganese when they hit the market first, and it was night and day difference, and I never went back. I have an electric bike that I have slas on just because they were $120 and I wasn't concerned with looks or weight at the time, I put 2 35ah slas on that as a 24v system, but it's extremely bulky, heavy as crap, and ugly, but it was more or less my first electric project, and it was easy. Now I will never use another sla if I can help it, lipos are just so much more practical as soon as you get the general understanding of them, they are insanely light, and they really work out cheaper in the long run for them than sla batteries. I am kinda disappointed that you didn't go brushless lol since I am having to go at it by myself, I would have loved to have someone show me the first thing not to do, so that I could bypass that step and go on to the second thing not to do lol, I will keep watching this thread, and I will try to be as active as possible here, your project looks sweet, and you are going for super clean with powdercoating, I look forward to seeing you put it together -
