Hi Jeremy,

Nice idea :) how about on the A 36 Bath to Salisbury,
maybe near the A 303 junction, seems fairly central?

Still watching your E-bike progress, inspiring!
and got an idea for a multi-motor drive!

Electric Rover maybe slow but I'm not fuming!

I wonder if The Killacycle will make a show, at 0 to 60mph in 1 second and
a top speed of 168mph this is the fastest EV so far! :shock: And it uses

Grumpy B said; "If you do a bit of calculation 18.5kwh of stored power at 72 volts = a significant 256 AH of storage. Thats a serious battery cell (s) ." What about the Trojan T145 6volt batteries that are 244Ah each x 12 to make 72volts? Has anyone tried these yet? I think I will replace ...
