Upgrade to Lithiums

Yes but definitely use the plates at each end or driving vibration may result in the straps cutting into the case of the cells

Anyone built a BLDC controller?

Yeah there is a MIT professors blog I like that warns people about them.

But was more after if someone had a design for one then I could build it.
Going for the Emmit Brown look :) I know it won't work out cheaper than just buying one but more interested in the fun factor :)

Anyone built a BLDC controller?

Hey guys n gals.

I'm in the middle of building a electric gokart for the kids and rather than use a run of the mill controller I was wondering if anyone on here has designed one ?
The motor is a mars ME907 brushless 5-10kw 48volt

I mean its easy enough to just buy one but easy is not my style lol

Segway clone project motor choice help

I have to say that the old stepper off my CNC seems to be doing very well on the kids gokart is smooth and though it gets warm it seems ok to me. It's just a 1/4hp one 110v
The CNC now runs 1hp units but it dose cut faster than most routers I have seen :)

Sealed Lead Acids at Scrap Prices (12v 65ah)

Yes I agree.
Cheap is only good if it fills the need :)
Otherwise you might be buying ballast instead of batteries to save a few bucks.
