As I=92m entering the final stages of my second electric
motorcycle, I=92m starting to think about a four wheeled
project. And it seems to me that building a fast [at
least for a short distance] electric conversion should
not be that much harder than just building an good
commuting car or cost that much more so I would like
to ask some questions about how to build a street
legal dragster:

Can a Zilla take a =91high=92 voltage pack but put out a
=91low=92 voltage to the motors? For example could I have
a 144 volt pack, but keep the motors below 96 volts?

Yes,
You can get the Z2K-EHV that will handle up to a 348V pack and limit the mo=
tor voltage to 96V.
Depending on the size of motor you use however you have to make sure the fu=
ll pack current (at your 96v) won't burn out the motor. But if you want to=
build a quick street/strip machine you should ultimately size the motor fo=
r maximum power handling capability. If you did go in initially with a sma=
ller you can also limit the motor current put out by the Zilla.

Dale,

I read your blog listed below on your Henderson 2 electric motorcycle to
get an update on how it is going. I had a few questions.

Did you end up using the MK Batteries (8A22NF)? Do you like them?

In the blog you noted that the two ETEK motors were getting warm. Was
this at a high speed? How fast do you think you could go and keep the
motors cool enough for long life?

Glad to hear you have the machine on the road.

Alan

Can a Zilla take a 'high' voltage pack but put out a
'low' voltage to the motors? For example could I have
a 144 volt pack, but keep the motors below 96 volts?

sorry the blog is a little confusing, since i'm
updating two bikes, the warm etek was from the first
bike i hope that issue will be solved with the second
bike with two eteks.

i do have the mkbatteries, but no road tests with them
yet.

thanks for checking it out.
