I Just got this car. I was wondering what DC motor & controller would work best for daily use of only 20 miles and max speed of 45. I want to drive this car to work and back, but don't want to spend lots of $
Also its an automatic, do I need to get a 5sp trans?


Thanks

Should be do-able fairly inexpensively with direct drive (maybe change the trans-axle gear ratio) and probably even with lead-acid batteries. If your motor and transmission both work, you might even get as much for them as the parts cost.

Suggest you read through the EV Information section - most of your questions are probably answered already. Your application is not very demanding, relatively.
