I am planning to convert a 1977 Firebird to electric and have a few technical questions before I start sourcing materials.

1. If use a Warp 11 HV single, what advantages in terms of power output does it have over the Warp 11 regular?

2. Say my max battery output is 240volts. And I buy one controller and have one warp HV 11. Would that perform the same as two warp 11s running on one controller sharing that 240 volts effectively running 120 volts each?

3. Can I couple two warp 11 HVs or just the regular warp 11s?

4. Also, anyone know of a good resource to find 12V batteries for EVs? Or the best dollar for voltage?

5. Anyone have any videos or car performance numbers of a Warp 11 HV or dual warp 11s in action?
Thanks in advance.

What do you mean by "12V batteries"? Are you thinking of using lead-acid batteries?

Very few people would use lead-acid for a car now; they're just used for low-speed vehicles, because they don't store much energy for their weight compared to lithium batteries. People are even ripping out lead-acid batteries from previously converted cars and rebuilding them with newer technology.

These two variants of Netgain's 11" motor have similar maximum power output and apparently similar maximum operating speed, but the speed for peak power is different. There are performance charts (in a very annoying form resulting from their crude test method) on the Netgain motor page. I suggest looking at those, but be prepared to spend some time to understand them.
