Let me know what you find out on these AC motors.
Sounds like they tried to over-compensate cost
reduction on the motor to make up for the higher
electronics cost?

P.S. I have nice 9" frame size AC motor for a 5,000 lb
forklift, wound for 24Vdc. It might make a nice
'go-cart' motor :). I still need to throw together a
control though.
