I am more or less in the same bandwagon and plan to buy a 72volts Alltrax.

Re: [EV] What type controller..

Look at the ALLTRAX 7245, that is what I'm running in
my 94' Eclipse. The voltage range actually has a
90vdc limit in it's programming, so I bumped my main
battery bank voltage up to 78vdc. I also power the
field of my aircraft generator with a separate 24volt
battery pack (12 volts didn't have enough torque,
36volts kept ripping the rubber motor mounts out and
ruined a CV joint, 24volts seems to give me enough
torque at inclines, and can keep the car running
highway speeds) , therefore leaving all the main pack
juice for the armature.

Look at it at: www.texomaev.com
