    Its running on 48 volts in the video, it will be 72 volts soon. I also plan on trying a 6 speed gear box and a cvt. I would like to turn this into a electric drag bike. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

    I put links for the big stuff. I will try adding a 6 speed blaster transmission on it, also i will try a cvt. I would like to make this into a sand drag bike. the batteries in the link are not the same brand but same type i have 24, i need 40 at least if not 60 to 80 reason for that is 10 packs will go in series to get 72volts. then i need 450 amps, so sets of 10 until the voltage stops dropping.
