I am probably over my head this and need to know if my plan will work. I have a 3500lb tube buggy with one ton axles, and 42 inch tall sticky trepador tires. Has supercharged v6 right now but a conversion kit will be here Monday or Tuesday. Warp9 curtis 1231 144v 500amp, zivan ng3, dc/DC inverter. Is this going to be enough to power my buggy with 12v agm batteries maybe 90ah. For gearing 4.10 axle 4:1 transfer case t4 manual transmission with 4:1 1st gear 1:1 4th. Always trailer it but have to slow crawler ledges and do some wot hill killing.

Could I still use the curtis controller andzegna ng3 charger with a OEM lithium pack? I'm just getting started with this conversion. Started pulling the ice stuff out and pick up the warp kit tonight at yrc.

Thanks for the replies. See actual electric rigs that have been built helps a lot.
So it looks like both the sami and Toyota have about 12kw batteries. That about the size I was thinking 12×90ah. I think I need more but don't have that big of a budget plus wanted to start with 144v of agm batteries. Probably look for the highest ah agm I can find and get a 2000w generator to pack around. Also I got some 1/4 inch steel plate from a buddy last night, is that good enough? Thinking two plates spaced about 2.5 inches apart for shaft separation and no clutch.

Seriously looking at buying a complete volt pack now for around 2000 from a salvage yard and not running bms (I only wheel it once a month and it is a trailer queen). Would need to split the volts in half and double the amp hours. And would need to figure out the charger.
