this is a cool looking project and well executed
The stickers say 650W but the aspect and apearance of the motor mounts from this pic:
make it look more like the 800W. Do the dimensions of the motor you have agree with the dimensions for the 650W?
Just curious, maybe you got more watts for you buck after the Golden shipping mess up.
You're right! I never occurred to me to check the length since I was so focused on the width for fitting purposes, and you know what, the "normal trike" they referred to must mean to them more of a "pedicab" trike, and this motor is the brushless big brother to the pedicab motors I was working on!
No wonder it's so gawd awfully heavy! The motor they were supposed to send is just under 15 lbs, this one is just under 20lbs!
Well, now my calculations are even further out of whack, this baby is gonna be geared for 50 MPH!
Too bad I won't be pushing it with enough juice for that kind of speed, might have to try it once though, just to see!
P.S. Thank you for the kind words, and your keep eye! I hope to have less or maybe even no need for any cooling with the extra 5lbs of copper!
