Default Question

In a 2500 lb vehicle, what would you choose. This ac50, or an warp11 with a 1000amp zilla?

I am assuming the ac50. Needs a trans/clutch too.

I have the funds but not the exp. To know the best combo.

Tyvm, Dean

Either way you go you should have enough power for that ride. However, using the AC-50 will give you re-generation and programmability of the controller unlike anything else on the market. The AC-50 motor is lighter in weight and smaller. AC-50 comes with the wire harness with all color coded wires for easy hookup. Also provides the 12v relay and spyglass gauge for information on the stutus of the AC-50 system. I prefer clutchless, because you dont do a lot of shifting and almost never in the city. No more reverse from the gearbox as the motor will provide your reverse without any extra contractors. I can provide you with full support at cruisin@live.com

I was curious and possibly interested but this motor seems overkill for my 83 rabbit convertible. I have used the old FB1-4001 in it in the past and that seemed more than up to the task. How would this motor compare?

I'd go the AC system for the rabbit if you can afford it. The new controller will give more punch and you gain the regen if that is your thing. I personally use the DC motors but I like the big fat boys. Stuffing an 11" Kostov in my VW Bus. I think for the Rabbit the AC is the way to go. Small, light weight and lots of nice features. I am sure it will be quieter than the DC motor. If your Rabbit is not in good shape then I'd opt to even get a newer Cabrio like a 92 so you have the benefit of a drivers air bag and nicer looking ride and the ability to put the top down on nice cool days of spring and fall.

Are the dimensions on this motor such that it can re-use existing adapter plates and couplers? For instance I have a ADC 4001A. Can I reuse the adapter plate and coupler from this motor?
Thanks
Steve

Here are the specifications http://www.hpevs.com/drive-systems/ac-50 of the AC-50 which uses the industry standard for a 8-9" motor which is what I believe yours is.

In stock in Livermore, CA. Controller will be reprogrammed to your specs before shipping. contact cruisin@live.com for details
