36v ego!

Ray_T's picture

Just finished all the wires for my ego2 36v conversion. I'm now running the stock ego motor on 36 volts through an alltrax axe controller limited to 100 amps. I replaced the brush springs with heavier springs to (hopefully) make firmer contact and reduce heat at the commutator. I've changed the final drive from a belt to chain for easier (and cheaper) gear ratio changes. the final drive is now 14:36, changed from 22:54, just a slight reduction. my first test ride on flat ground yielded 32 mph in less than 10 seconds.

Now for the hill test(19th street in Port Townsend, WA between San Juan and Sheridan). If anyone wants to know how steep the street is, check elevation changes on google earth.

:D
