...Every motor requires reduction gears and frequently an additional reduction at the differential for optimum performance. Thi motor requestings less reduction gearing than conventional motors. Check the power curve (y axis is hp, x axis is vehicle speed) : Plenty of motors that do not need reduct...

Re: Tesla model S plaid motor 30 lbs, 400 hp perfect high power ebike motor?

Single helical stage per motor per rear wheel to eliminate the differential is fantastic. Differentials are vestigial internal combustion components. You count the reduction gears as part of the motor?! When you compare a motor that requires reduction gears against motors that don't, it's unrealist...

So excited to feel the pull of the Plaid tomorrow! Woot!

I'm excited to hear your reaction!
Just the reduction gears look like 30 lbs. The whole motor has to be much more.

You count the reduction gears as part of the motor?!

Re: Tesla model S plaid motor 30 lbs, 400 hp perfect high power ebike motor?

Zero chance this motor is 30lbs. None. Maybe they are talking about the rotor? It's a break through. Elon announced on-stage that you could hold it in one hand. A Tesla engineer told a YouTuber the weight 30 lbs and power ~400hp. I'd be happy to place a bet, contingent on Sandy Munro's teardown, bu...

Video from dragtimes talking to a Tesla Engineer who said that the motors weigh 30 lbs. and are can put over 400hp. Brooks said that more than one third of 1k and the engineer said they are limited by the batteries.. 30 lbs is probably in the ballpark of twp Astro 3220’s with Matt’s drives. Definite...

Re: Chevy bolt purchase at auction- how to be sure it comes with dc fast charging

Thanks Warren!

It turns out that there’s a page if you dig around that says DC Fast Charging. Not sure what is there if the car doesn’t have DC Fast charging but if I can tell from the site pictures that will be easier and more reliable.

Thanks again!😁🙏
