Hey all, maybe someone has seen something that i have over looked on this. I'm making plans to build an electric drag pocket bike, the mid bikes to be exact. The bike only has to go a 1/4 mile length, but more range would be nice. I have most of the components picked out that i want to use like the 6.7" motor that i'm having re-done, and a 72 volt 1000 amp controller. Which battery would offer the best performance though under these high amp draws?
I've already considered svr, hawkers, flooded nicads from sg photo, sub c surplus nicads, and some others. The main thing i am concerned with though is price as you can tell, a123 and e-moli cells are too costly for this project. So does anybody have any ideas that come to mind reading this that would work well?
