for those interested, what I have so far on ZIbo super motors company
products:
http://www.zev.dk/misc/ZiBoSuperMotors.zip
they also have sepex versions of them all but I haven't focused on those

I'll probably order one any day now. they are so cheap it's worth the
shot to see what it's about.
they claim Zap zebra truck EVs use their motors which is an ok vote of
confidence

I don't know what's in that zip. And I'm not going to download it to
find out... Perhaps HTML would be a better format to post this
information in?

You may check this site and it's just html.

yes but it contains a lot less info. afaik opening a zip file cannot be
a virus risk. a zip file can contain virus infected files but can't be a
virus in itself. opening a zip file is riskfree unless you can't help
run executable files found inside. and there aren't even any in this

Looks safe, but then again, I don't use windows.

On e word of warning, it has not path info at all so it dumps into the
directory you type the unzip command in(a tar bomb)

I don't have a mac. But perhaps it's the proprietary Word doc files?

I just opened it on my mac, and it seemed fine. You do have to have
Word for some of it, and AutoCAD, or other DWG viewer for other of it
(which I don't have yet).

I'll vouch for OpenOffice stuff. I've been using it for a few months, and
haven't found anything that MS Office can do that the OO suite can't do.

Well I can open all the files except the dwg files in that folder. I
use Neo Office which is just another flavor of Open Office. It was
not that I could not get them to open but the fact its not a nice
neat easy to use web page. As it is I must open one page at a time or
select all and open as a group of pages to filter through. Not so
user friendly in my opinion. I did read the text page. WOW. Super
prices. I want one of those 11" 144 volt motors. : ) I'll take the
risk and try one.

Dan, Send me info on how I can get one here.

should be interesting. I'm choosing between the 6.3-96V at 65kg or the
lighter ones around 45kg.
the first value is actually not an inch value but some semi arbitrary kW
rating. they basically have to diameters 192m and 242mm. the biggest
weighs 75kg which is bigger than the typical 9inchers but not quite as
heavy as warp11.
my contact's email address in in the text file. or you can contact them
via their alibaba page

as others have suggested open office might offer you a way to read the
doc files and I imagine there is a way to view the dwg files too. look
for dwg viewer mac
if you can't find anything let me know and I can try to convert them to pdf

7.5kw 96V $525

11kw 144V motor $550

I'm sure shipping is going to be high...might be better to stay with D&D

I noticed that the *peak* efficiency of these motors
is specified to either 80 or 83% for the larger motors.

While that may seem decent, it means that you will
lose between 10 to 15% range compared to higher quality
motors and in addition the motor will run hotter by
dissipating around 2kW (for the 11 kW motor).

(Another way of looking at the price for the motor:
if the cheaper motor causes you to lose 15% range
and your pack costs $3,000, then you would need to
invest $450 (15% of 3,000) more to maintain range
compared to a high quality motor.
And this is just for initial investment, not the
recurring pack replacements....
If the cheaper motor is not more than $450 lower
in cost, then it does not even make sense from an
initial investment perspective, let alone a long
term view, so you'd better go for the high quality
motor.
Now I have only addressed upfront money, not the
longevity of motor and other secondary effects.)

It looks like the motors are closed type, so I wonder
what their duty cycle is, as continuous duty with
this level of loss may result in too high internal
temperatures and early failure of the motor.
Just my critical glossing over the provided specs....
Of course, you get what you pay for - one of the
reasons that I had my eye on a SurplusCenter GE motor
for a while, but now that I consider ordering,
they are out of stock.
Oh well - I can wait and first reseach further about
the (Indian) vehicle that I am considering to convert:
(Don't laugh) an autorickshaw AKA Bajaj 3-wheeler.
There are literally 100,000 in use as taxi in this city.
Most are 2-stroke Diesel. Can you say pollution?

Why not copy the example of the Safa Tempo:

I think you erroneously assume that for instance AdvancedDC and Netgain
motors are higher quality in that sense
