What size wiring would be required between the batteries for connecting them in series, as well as the wiring for connected each motor controller to the motor?
Is there a general rule for the gauge of wire that is needed for the maximum current that will be seen through that wire?
Thanks for any replies.
There has been plenty of prior discussion here about cable sizing. Look for it. And there have been charts posted. You need to size to average, not peak current.
The TTXGP had a bunch of bikes running dual Agnis. Not the one I was with. But those guys appeared to use like AWG#2 to the motors. And they would run hard for a complete charge of 7 to 9 kWh.
