Default Re: Motor suggestions... GO!

I would email all of the major motor manufacturers (PQ, D&D, AMD, etc.) and explain what you’re working with and what you are looking for and see what they say.

As with all top speed hopes, gearing (and ultimately max motor rpm) is a major limiting factor.

Also I can tell you from experience that even with lithium, once you start cruising over 25mph it really sucks the battery down. Especially so at 30 and above. I have not done extensive testing but as a rough estimate I’d say 30mph cruise probably cuts a good 1/3 off my total range compared to 25.
