Re: [EVDL] Ninja Conversion

Hello and welcome Robert,

Next time, please put a header on your question or
this could have been missed. It originally said (no
subject).

Car batteries are not intended for the deep discharge
that is required of electric vehicles. In simple
terms for a DC motor, voltage equals speed and amp/hrs
equals capacity of discharge or distance. What I
recommend is you look at THE LARGEST collection of
electric vehicles in one site otherwise known as the
evalbum.com (specifically
http://www.austinev.org/evalbum/type/MTCY ) as
provided by the fine members of this mailing list,
compare existing builds with their batteries so you
can get an idea of what to use and actual performance
as told from an owner's perspective, and then come
back asking about batts. =


Not trying to insult the list, but usually, a new
person comes in asking this question and gets
inundated with lots of opinions and gets even more
confused. Which then leads to the topic of FAQ site,
etc....

Back on topic, also you can check out
http://electricmotorcycles.net and the mailserver
which is an off shoot of this list. =


Or if mailing lists arent your flavor, couple of
online forums like http://visforvoltage.net and
http://endless-sphere.com/forums/

Good Luck and have fun riding.

Lyle
