    Not a Sherp video! You do you Rich. But I prefer build videos. Should get Home Depot to sponsor the track video of this thing. Or at least try to. They like to sponsor race cars

    80 miles of range, sixteen 18v 9ah batteries with total energy 2,6kwh. Therefore it consumes no more than 33 wh per mile or 20 wh/km. Too good to be true, original City-El consumes at least 30-50 wh/km, older ones 70-100 wh/km.

    Lead acid batteries see efficiencies closer to 80 to 85 percent. Being that lithium ion batteries are more difficult to recycle, wouldn't you see more over all efficiency of use from lead acid. Also its just a golf cart with 3 wheels.

      The problem with Lead is that these batteries will last 1 to 2 years in a car like this while LiFePO4-Batteries are known to last over 10 years.

    Huh, a Danish car on UK plates in the states...interesting. Q322 KKE Registered January 1993 last MOT (Annual Vehicle Safety check) due 1 July 1997, last logbook was issued on 13th of September 1994 so it was probably imported into the states around 1997 or so, Weird as a Q reg was used to classify imports, kit cars, re registered write offs and stolen vehicles or vehicles of which the manufacture date couldn't be proved. might be worth a look into.

    Make sure you have a shut off that will shut down when the batteries get down so low because you can cause damage to them if you discharge them too far. Also use the HO Milwaukee batteries as they use 21700 cells and allow more power to the motor.
