I'm thinking about converting a golf cart or small car to electric by using simple hub motors. Using wheel motors is much simpler than making adaptor plates to mount a regular motor to the trany. I'm thinking about at least 2000 watts per wheel, preferable much bigger, such as 5000 watts. I imagine these will have characteristics similiar to the electric scooters like the xm2000 and z-20. But for mounting to a 4 wheeled vehicle, it needs to have a side load mounting. Does anyone know where to source these and how they would mount to a spindle/hub?
Mountain, I found some posts from you with these motors, can you give more information?
