I have asked various questions here and there but am now starting a real life build thread! The donor is a 2005 Track Magic shifter kart chassis. The goal is to keep it under 400 lbs with as much power as possible, so that it can hopefully go race against ICE karts. Here are my main parts currently being seriously considered.
only 26lbs and max 45kw..ish hopfully 50kw with some cooling
read about it here, still a prototype http://endless-sphere.com/forums/vie...440&hilit=agni
a bit under used for this application but full of modern features, and reliability that you find with a Kelly.
-For batts I am leaning toward the Haiyin Lipos( 3.7v 6ah 50C )
that Lithuimanics runs but am still doing more battery research. Battery musts are as follows: pack voltage will be 84-96v still working out what would be best for motor, probably 20-30ah and capable of 600amp burst which means High C Rate cells only.
I had a great talk on the phone with scotty449 the other day which was very informative. We discussed the possible use of an Ac-15 but at 46lbs i think it is still to heavy. Kleanspped build their eKart with AC and I am sure the regen is great but not sure if its worth the weight. http://www.kleenspeed.com/e-karts/
However I am interested if anyone has experience with Agni's and what their pitfalls are?
Thanks for your input in advance.
EDIT: I have decided to go with Turnigy Lipo 6s 35C-70C see page 3 for more on that.
