Hi George
That motor sounds eminently suitable! and with 500 amps and 1300 kg will give decent performance - take some pictures of the brushes and comm to show us

Hi George
Those are decent sized brushes - but it looks like only four of them

The motors we normally use have eight brushes - 500 amps should be OK but probably no more than that

I suspect you will be getting more torque per amp than I do with my Hitachi motor

It's 67 volts and 1400 rpm

With a 144v controller you may run into the problem that I did when I went to 130v - goes really well but runs out of puff at the higher revs

You may have to jack the voltage up to get highway speeds

The yoke is great - should be able to tap out the spider and fit it to your propshaft - you will need a propshaft with a sliding joint as well as the UJ's
