Hi, thank you! I have extended it so I could fit in more batteries. It can fit 4 now with the controller which means 48 Volts! I was thinking 1000 Watt motor too. It has pretty much cost me nothing to make so far as I've had alot of stuff lying around . Might have to wait to buy the new motor. I was thinking this one:
Motor brought. Batteries in the next couple of weeks. Need a rotary switch volt metre, couple if switched and such. And the controller. Will the throttle leaver still work? I'm thinking it should do. Hopefully that picture upload works too.
I think you should have gotten a few miles from it. Are the batteries new? Did you fully charge them? What was the voltage? Was it a half mile going up a steap hill? Were you full throttle the whole time? So it only lasted a few minutes?
