That was my concern not having enough hp also. I am going to do a truck set up because of the range I need for work and few hills. I don't think that it prob is a good idea going this way with this motor. I don't want to be limited to small oops or mistakes costing $ down the road. Since this is going to be my first conversion I think that I am going to play it safe for now and go with main stream motors and controllers. Maybe by next year I can get going on something. Thanks for help if you have any other things that come to mind let me know. I live down here near Portland so Seattle is a bit out of the way. I would consider a class like this if it was down here.
