Default Re: Picked up a DS with a D & D motor

Is the installation a simple swap out kind of thing? Or are there any additional parts that need to be replaced or added during this upgrade?

Considering the setup I have, how can I get another 5-7mph out of it? I bought some 2ga quotes (not installed yet) which will make it run nice and cool, but I'd really like to get her up to 25-27mph. Running about 20mph now. Am I gonna have to swap out the motor? From what I understand, a bigger controller won't add more to speed.

Going from a 250 amp controller to a 500-700 amp won't really help you much with speed but it will help you regain the torque you lost by installing the high speed motor with a factory controller. You may gain half a mile per hour and maybe a full mile per hour, but nothing truly noticeable. For maximum speed in a series car, I like a mild high speed gear setup. I wouldn't go too drastic with it. If you're running 20 mph with the factory 12:1 gears I'm calculating that you'll run around 25-26mph with a 10:1 gear set. 8:1 gears would have you around 32-33 mph, but the higher you go with gearing, the more torque you're gonna lose. I think the 10:1 would be ideal.

Thank you Tahoe. I had no idea about the gears. Are they a nightmare to change for the average guy?

No. They're relatively simple. You've gotta take the gear case apart but there's only 3 gears in there. An input gear, an intermediate gear, and a ring gear.
