I'm working on a homebuilt controller, but don't know if I'll finish it in the near future. I may end up borrowing the Raptor out of my Mazda.

May go with 168v depending on the kind of performance I get.

Going to use individual 12v chargers, one for each battery.

Before conversion. Expecting to gain ~700 lbs by the time I'm done.
I'm looking for good street performance out of this car. With this kind of voltage, I'll be looking at around 120 peak shaft hp, so it should fairly quick. Torque at low rpm should be amazing!

As of now, I have the motor in the car, and I'm working on assembling all of the "little stuff." I'm expecting to have it on the road in a month or two.
