But isn't that why they make earplugs and Nomex underwear?

Wouldn't be great for range, but might be fun to get back on the drag strip.... :mrgreen:

Rear battery door, hinges, etc, and replace top motor mounting bolts with thinner head ones to miss battery terminals by greater margin.

You can see the stainless steel door hinges used on the battery door! :lol:

For anyone skinny, building a narrow chair, you could still move the rear wheels 10mm inboard (each side) if required and then it will be under 25 inches total. I left the 10mm gap so I can later on bolt on 4.5 wide rims, and even lower profile 145 tyres. As soon as I can find a set this side of the Atlantic.

Seat plate/frame. Too much dump here, shortened, footplate mounts cut off, different mountings, and powder coated.

Which I needed on, because it lets me configure the battery in multiples of 8 to take the best advantage of the space available. This is ESSENTIAL to take full advantage of the lithium battery.

Max capacity I can fit (easily) is 120Ah. (80x 12cells). Because one of the great things about these headway cells, over the typical prismatic cells, (or lead) is that it can be configured to use up all of the available space. It need not be rectangular. Or even all in one place.
