I don't think I need something as heavy duty as that. I need to be very weight conscious for performance reasons. The battery pack will be the primary cost of this design, and will probably come in around 2.5-4 grand depending on prices when I finally purchase it.

If weight goes up significantly then I need to increase the pack size, strengthen the frame etc. It all spirals up in costs.
