Hello

I drove my Geo Metro in my yard ... a little bit.

I used 36 volts and a curtis 1204 (24-36v, 275 amp).

I didn't connect the fan to the G29 motor yet.

I was wondering if I made a mistake in going direct
drive. The car did not want to move unless it was on
level ground, when starting up.

When I add more volts and change the controller will
it make a difference?

My direct drive works like this. I have the motor
directly coupled to the transmission, so I still have
the clutch, minus the pedal.

Thanks in advance,

Michael Golub

Mike, I had the same problem with torque issues on
inclines using the G29 generator/motor. You'll want
to power the field winding separately with another
battery pack. Use the controller for strictly the
armature.
