    Sounds like they're being cautious, but if they're saying there are issues with the motor above 72V, they must know something we don't .
    I'll do some lookin' and askin'. All I saw on his website was big stuff, like 9" and above.

    thats mostly what he deals with, but he does smaller. I've bought and sold several motors from him without any issues.

I commend Brammo for the IET, but all the gears in the world won't make up for a lack of power.

    On the same forum, another poster commented that a CVT might be the way to go to get the most out of an EV. It seems to me that giving that a try using a junk-yard motor scooter transmission might be something worth experimenting with. An off the shelf motor scooter CVT might not be able to handle the torque for very long, but it might work long enough to test the results. I imagine that there are plenty of junked motor scooters around.
    I had a thought many moons ago that a snowmobile cvt might be the way to go. Plenty of junked sleds in Maine, and they would be able to handle the power. But I don't know much about snowmobiles other than the basics.
