Re: [EVDL] Overdiven 10hp AC

> hey guys these motors are used on cnc machines that are high speed and they NEED A BUNCH of


Granted CNC have many of the attributes in a number of motors, but most of them have some issues not useful for an EV. Like weight. Or, like you said, a massive cooling system. The biggest problem after weight is price. They are very expensive. Surplus and Used not withstanding.

I think all the best candidates can already be found at the online EV parts sales outlets right now. Likely none of them are direct rotor cooling. They could just opt for massive cooling systems instead.
