As mentioned previously, fat knobby tires are best for riding on top of the snow, while thin

Posted in thread: Motor Output Watts For MPH on 11-19-2013 at 05:21 AM
Thought I'd graph a direct comparison of the electrical watts supplied into a motor and the
actual motor output (watts) power.Based on a 750w motor at full throttle ... line at low speed
is the Amp l...
