I have designed the BMS with the thought in mind that it could fairly easily be scaled and tweaked to be used in a full EV. I do have a future project in mind, but its on the back burner at the moment.

A money maker it will not be though. I'd really like to keep it as an open source project. The commercial BMS systems are fairly expensive and I haven't found a good alternative myself, so this is the route I am taking. Being open source also allows me to get help from others! I'm far from an expert, and I've already had a bunch of useful input from the guys here and local EV club. Its great to get useful criticism and feedback so it can be further improved upon.
