I want to go much faster this time using one of the Bladez frames. Each scooter has a working 450w motor, drivetrain, and brakes (though I'm only interested in upgrading one scooter). Electronics are shot. I have about $500 to work with (hopefully less) and I would like the scooter to go at least 25 mph (I've lost considerable weight this year, so that should help me get more speed, lol).
I definitely want to go lipo this time, but it's the motor and controller I need advice on (also lipo, but I guess that's a different topic). I want to use the stock gear and chain if possible. Should I just try to overvolt the existing 24v motor, or try a brushless? I'd like to go brushless, but I think the inrunner ones are too big for the footprint of the frame, and there are so many outrunners out there, I wouldn't know what to look for. I also have not seen anyone try using a brushless inrunner with this frame. If the brushless motor, controller, batteries, and charger are going to run me over $500, I guess my best bet is to overvolt the existing motor. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how long those will last. Any advice would be most appreciated.
