I dont have any personal experience with those motors either, but I think I will need to agree with major. I believe the quality of the motor is outstanding, as is the efficiency. But I worry about their ability to absorb and get rid of heat. For a bike they would really kick butt, but in a full sized electric car they could easily overheat. And I think that the weight you save in a full sized car is negligible. You save about 100 lbs over a 9 inch series would motor. even if its a small car thats about 3 to 4 percent of the car's total weight. Now if its a cycle, then is about 12-20 percent of the cycle's total weight. Not negligable at all.

I did see a few people on ev album that have used them successfully in small ev's, so I very well could be wrong. You might be able to get a hold of one of those ev album guys The motors certainly have impressive specs.

Thanks for the insight. This would be for an open body vehicle in which I AM looking at forced air incorporated in the cooling. As for weight, I am looking between 500-600lbs (minus driver).

THANKS AGAIN

The Lynch (or Agni) will be fine for this size and weight.

I've fitted several vehicles with these motors and am extremelly happy with the performance.

Overheating is not a huge problem with the Agnimotor, at 93% efficiency there isnt so much heat to shift, and they have a very good self cooling motion as the armature is in effect a centrifugal fan. As long as there is some fresh air in the motor compartment it will be fine.

I will be fitting a pair of Agni's to a Hudson Spirit trike, also weighing around 400KG and expect fairly blistering performance from it.

It would be interesting to see a larger frame motor coming from the Agni/lynch company....

Hi I am thinking of using a Lynch motor as an impeller on an electric boat but I'm reading low RPM figures of 140 ? Is this correct, how do you get the output for a Bike or Car ?

You post as a reply to a thread which has been dormant for 4 years. Your post is confusing to say the least. Please elaborate; like where and how do you read 140 RPM. Also please go to user CP (control panel) and fill in your geographic location so it will display your location in the upper right above your post. That way the reader can better understand your frame of reference.
