I'm looking to upgrade the Razor Ground Force drifter (Blue). From other articles on the forum, I've narrowed the options down to:
1. 24V 500Watt Kit (will need: Higher AH Batteries, Motor)
2. 36V 500Watt Kit (will need: Higher AH Batteries, Motor, Switch & Throttle)
Can you please:
a. Create the Kits with part numbers for order (I also saw somewhere that you offer 10% discount on kits);
b. Provide a quick feedback on Options 1 and 2 as I have outlined above, including pros and cons for 24v vs 36v systems.
c. Recommend another option for the upgrade.
So I'm thinking to go with the 24v 500Watt option. I noticed that most of the kits include speed controller as well as throttle. Since I already have the original throttle and controller, do I need to purchase a new one to support 500Watt?
Also, is my assumption correct that 15Ah batteries on the 24v 500Watt setup will give me around the same ride time as the 7Ah batteries on 24v 250Watt original?
And lastly, are there any other options to have 24v batteries with longer ride time? Let's say 50Ah or even higher batteries from Golf carts or something similar?
You are absolutely correct about the ride time. A 15Ah battery pack with 500 Watt motor will have the same ride time, or maybe a little longer, as a 7Ah battery pack with a 250 Watt motor.
It is no problem to use larger batteries for a longer ride time. There is no limit to the size of batteries that can be used other than where and how to mount them and their weight. For example, we could make a new version of the 500 Watt kit with 22Ah, 35Ah, 50Ah, or even larger batteries and a larger battery charger that is capable of recharging them.
If you would like for us to make a new version of a kit with larger batteries then please let us know what the kit's item number is and what size batteries to upgrade it to, and we will make a new version of the kit and post a link to it here. There is no obligation to buy the new version of the kit and we will be glad to make it so it is in our kit inventory list for everyone to see.
