Motor came in today. I will start messing with it this weekend and see what I can figure out. It is a bit thinner than I estimated so it should have no trouble fitting in a few different places.

I saw Kelly controllers has a 144V controller now. Is it worth spending double the money to get a 144V 650A controller instead of the 72V 300A I was planning on? I doubt I could fit 12 batteries in the car easily but I guess anything is possible. Is going to 144V actually worth it though in real day to day use? If anything I guess I could get that controller just so I have the option of going higher voltage in the future. Not sure if that Mars motor can take that much abuse though.
