Epic Win!

At first I thought it was a Segway, but then I guessed it may be part of an e-wheelchair.

I'm also interested in what it will be turned into.

Correct! Attached pic of what it came from. Whole thing came out as a single unit, so I just took it that way. Motor and stuff will be removed to make EV go-kart. Then we figure out how 3 broke college guys and one broke dad can come up with the money to buy parts for one of Paul's controllers and go for a REAL car.

Controller that was in it! Curtis 1208-2455. It's 24V (from what I can find it'll take 12-36 volts), 55A continuous, 75A peak (30 seconds).

It's got 8x ST P60NE06-16 in it:

Soo...how good did I do to score it for free?

It would sure be interesting how to get some speed out of wheelchair mechanicals. (mag wheels, flame stickers, and skateboard wheels on wheelie bars just will not speed mine up........ )

Well, I've got a permanent magnet motor that's rated for 2 horsepower. Not sure how we'll end up gearing it.

The transaxle and motor from the wheelchair are pretty interesting! I haven't split open the transaxle, but I did take the motor off of it - which may have been a mistake. They connect the motor to the transaxle via a planetary set! This also happened to be full of grease (thus the reason it may have been a mistake). Part of it is plastic, and part of it metal; I don't think it'll take a LOT of abuse. I have some old bicycle gears that aren't on a bike at the moment; I was figuring to maybe use one of them if I can find a good ratio.

Wouldn't that be grand! We could Skype you in, perhaps?
