So what kind of amps would you guess I probably need to pull away from a stop light and accelerate at a average or slightly below average rate up to say 30mph? I can't find a lot of PMAC motor controllers that go much beyond 250 for peak amps. I am not sure how many miles a brushed dc motor can handle between rebuilds if I go that route. I typically put 15k miles a year on the car so I would like to have it last at least a year between having to mess with it.

The good thing about how the car is built if I need to I can move the passenger side firewall back to give me enough room to fit the motor up behind the engine. It won't affect the strength of the chassis.
