Vehicle2010 KMX Typhoon
After building 4 ebikes.. I was attracted by the idea of building an electric trike to feel the confort and the capability of making DRIFT !!.. having at least 3 wheel is the idea...
MotorCrystalyte 5302 Brushless DC
The motor is a Hub motor..
- low maintnance
- can be abused alot because it's
Controller 18 mosfet Infineon
I Modified it with copper bar on the
heatsink. Can take 250A phase current at up to 100V. The mosfet are the IRFB4110 the capacitors are the Panasonic Low ESR 5000uF total
Batteries112 A123 Systems M1 26650 ( from deffective dewalt 36V battery), 92.00 Volt, Lithium Iron Phosphate
28s 4p 92.4V 9.2Ah
I made this battery with top of the
line conponents including copper saheet, fiberglass(FR4) insulator... etc.. same battery as for my WORLD FASTEST ELECTRIC BICYCLE june 2009
System Voltage92 Volts
Charger Meanwell RSP-1500 power supply of 48V
I use this really powerfull 1500W DC
power supply as a charger. I connect
the battery that is divided in two bloc in serie.. I connect both in parallel for charging at up to 51.6V CC-CV, and use them in serie for 102V full
InstrumentationCycle Analyst V2.11
Cruise control
Top Speed70 MPH (112 KPH)
The no load speed of the motor is close to 180km/h, but i evaluate that it would probably do 120-130km/h no prob.. but i still dont have any steering damper installed si i keep it slow.. around 60-70kmh
AccelerationI N C R E D I B B L E !!

The seat push you like a drag race car
do!! The main idea of a trike was to
feel the acceleration differently than
on an electric bicycle... THE SUCCEDED
TO ACHEIVE THAT!!.. more than enough!!

RangeThis ebike is made for acceleration.. not trip!
