Re: gholm's Morris J2 Van- 1966

So cool!

I just have too many vehicles already. Unless you’d swap for a very clean 1983 Mercedes 300D (With turbo)- No power point needed...and some cash?

Re: Rolf's 1959 Puch SR150 scooter

I checked out to see if I could fit 20 LTOs in. Turns out that they are about the size of an aerosol can. After failing to see how they could fit by measuring, I found 20 aerosols cans to see if I could jam them in. I was three short, and the other 17 were a squeeze. I have ordered enough headway ce...

Re: EOI - New Yinlong LTO cells Australia

I'm interested in LTO cells, but as a noob, I'm concerned about putting a pack together without having cell holders. Are plastic cell holders available like those for headway cells?

Re: Rolf's 1959 Puch SR150 scooter

Nice! Is that the controller I see in there too.. Yes, the controller isn't fully mounted, but that's where I plan for it to go. Plenty of battery space above. Still looking for the best power to weight battery pack I can put in. There isn't that much difference between the LTOs you mentioned and H...

Re: Rolf's 1959 Puch SR150 scooter

Thanks Richo, I already have the controller :( I started this project almost two years ago and got sidetracked. A bit has changed in what’s available since then. Back then, I did do all the calculations for gearing and set it up to do a bit over 100km/h at full RPM. I know it may seem a lot for a sc...

Re: 1959 Puch SR150 scooter

Hi Richo, The tyres are 12 inch. I'll check on how much space I have and see if I can fit 4 packs in, unless there is a better suggestion on which batteries to use? So max continuous current is 72A? (Based on 48V and 3500W) Once it runs, I'll play with the gearing with an amp meter connected if this...

Rolf's 1959 Puch SR150 scooter

Chassis: 1959 Puch SR150 Scooter Motor: Motoenergy ME0909 Controller: Alltrax SR484300 Batteries.... Thinking Headways. Am I right to think that 3 packs of 15 headways (48V) will give me 24Ah are enough power to get me to work and back. Round trip is 15Km. Can I get away with 2 packs of 15 @ 16Ah? I...
