Lol, I'm really not done with the "Little Red Pocket Mod" project and I'm already starting another build! I picked up a striped down Razor Quad for $40.00 the other day:
(Sorry about the Craigslist photo, I'll take some proper ones tomorrow).
My thoughts for this one is to make something for myself the I can ride around on in the RV parks that I have been staying at since I bought my motorhome. However, I will also want to do some "off roading" on it. I'm thinking of stretching the frame about 12" and doing a custom fiberglass shell for it to replace the original red one, (or maybe cutting the red one and adding fiberglass panels to stretch it to fit the frame mod).
I'm also trying to decided whether to go with a 36v 1000w Unite or a 48v 1000w. I'm leaning towards the 48v setup, because then I could use my existing 36v motor for another project that I'm going to do right after! (I pickup a Razor MX for $20.00 at the flea market today that I want to do for my daughter). Another thought was to cut the rear axel in two and run two separate motors. That would be a lot more work, but for off road it might be better, (LOL, or go with 4 hub motors!). Any thoughts on the motors would be appreciated.
For the controller, I will probably go with a YK43b, although I still have the Kelly controller that robnewyork hooked me up with for $15.00 last year that I haven't used yet. With this much frame space, I could fit it in easily.
BTW, a big thanks to robnewyork for helping me with some preliminary questions that I had.
Well, as I have said before, let the modding begin!
