So I have wanted to do a stupid EV project for a while and a few months back I saw a Razor MX350 electric “dirtbike” at a tagsale for $25! The batteries were shot, wheels barely holding on, but it had a frame and that’s all I needed.
The plan is to replace the 250 watt motor with a 2700 watt RC plane motor I had laying around. I will be building a custom battery pack most likely using Vruzend battery caps, an equalsZero Brushless Rage motor driver, and some other BS to make this work. So far I have made a wooden mock-up of the motor mount and it fits. The steel mount should be ready in the next week or so and after that it’s all electronic from there. I’ll post updates as stuff gets added on.
