That's a bit scary to me. What is a better alternative? One of your controllers maybe? 25% more speed sounds good to me so I would need to go to 72V I suspect. More amps to get more torque to go up hills so instead of staying at 20 amps, I should look into 40 amps right? Now I still have this question, can the motor I have now which is rated 500watts/48V run on 72V? Or do I need to upgrade the motor?

The chemistry is not suited for what I want. From what I know, Lithium Polymer don't do so well in cold temperature also. I'm up here living in the Great White North and my scooter sleeps in an unheated, uninsulated garage.
I hope I can find the definite answers for what I need for a very reliable scooter that gives the performance I wish to have. If not, then I'll have to think about going back to fossil fuels I really wish I don't have to.

I understand your point here. But $2000 is what I saved up to now by selling my car and riding an E-scooter all summer since the beginning of May. Two more months and I will have reimbursed myself the price of the scooter entirely. Running electric brings savings and it's cool. Now If I were to go with a gas scooter instead of going back to a car, I would still save money, maybe $300 a month instead of 400+ (cost of running the car I had was), I haven't calculated the cost of running a gas scooter. I just have become very passionate about E vehicles and want to run with one, I got sick and tired of the oil companies gouging my wallet every week. I love the no noise, no emissions attributes of E vehicles. There has to be a way, I don't want much, just go 31/32 mph, enough torque to keep that speed going uphill and a range of 35 miles. All this in a reliable package. That's not too much to ask
When it gets to -20 C up here, I won't be running the scooter, it'll be in storage for the winter. But I want to run it until the temps fall down to -5 C.

I went 500 feet and had the first cut out, another 500 feet and the second cut out. Then the scooter ran fine for the rest of the ride. What could be the reason for those two cut outs?
