Hi everybody,

So I’ve read a lot about E-boards and what parts I should get, gear ratios, Motor Kv’s, wheel types, etc.

But I’m going for a little bit of an unconventional approach.

I’m just a little confused on batteries. First, let me tell you what I’ve already bought.

Gears:

15 Teeth and 40 Teeth both 5mm pitch.

Motor:

400KV 1375W 80A Brushless Outrunner

Connections:

10 Gauge wire

Belt:

65 Tooth Pulley Belt

ESC:

150A Car ESC

So my question is what battery I should get. I was looking at this 5000MaH 4S 20C battery:

Wheels:

83mm Flywheels

With the gears, it is a 2.667 ratio and at 14.8 V, @ 5,920 RPM, it goes to 22 MPH. I’m looking for a top speed of around 20, but I probably don’t need to go that fast to be honest.

Unfortunately, I cannot find any batteries that are 5000 MaH 6S 20C, which is what I planned on. Would a different C value battery at 4S or 6S be possible? I’m afraid that a higher amperage like that would negatively effect heat and possibly be too much for my components.

This is mostly for commuting about 2-3 miles on flat ground on city streets.

Thank you for any input, it is greatly appreciated.
