Here's a newbie question. If I chuck out the transmission in my EV conversion project, how do I gear down the revs from the motor to the wheels? Are there off the shelf single speed "gearboxes" with a 3:1 or 4:1 ratio or thereabouts?

More details would help. Front wheel drive? Rear wheel drive? Lower RPM DC motor(Duncan's specialty)? Higher RPM AC motor(more and more popular)?

So sorry, I forgot to mention - it's for a 4wd using a pair of DC forklift motors. I'm trying to avoid cost and complexity.
DrGee, when you skip to a new thread, on the same build, you need to bring the rest of us up to speed on the basic info from your original thread. Better yet, try to stick to one thread to avoid the confusion. Most of us(except maybe Brian?) have a life outside of this forum and can't read and parse every post that's ever been written.


Another option might be to reference your previous threads or posts.
