Gear selection thoughts
- I think I can eliminate reverse due to the straight cut gears.
- 1st may be too much fun for teenagers, and not give quite enough speed as we are in the country and 45Mph top may cause traffic issues.
- 5th, 4th I will find out more as I do the power calculations. I suspect they will pull too many amps at low speeds, I do not understand the power vs. gear relationship for high speed yet. Maybe we will need to shift gears before getting on the highway or learn to clutch-less shift?
- 2nd gear looks viable for around town use, I have seen postings about limiting the motor rpm to limit the churning in stock transmission that was designed for lower rpm than a common 6000rpm for 45pmh. Any advice out there on this topic of rpm limits?
Next calculations, Power vs MPH.
