I made an all wheel drive electric drift trike. It has a 750 watt hub motor in the front wheel from Leaf Bike, powered by a 36 volt 10 amp hour water bottle style lithium-ion battery. OtterBox phone mount. Mirrycle bar end mirror. Driving the rear wheels are two 1,000 watt MY1020 motors from Electric Scooter Parts. The 36 volt motors are powered by two banks of Dewalt cordless tool batteries. I like to use the large 9 amp hour Lithium-ion Flexvolt batteries. All of the batteries must be grounded together for the three controllers to work with one throttle. I try to use thick 10 gauge wire for all of the battery connectionn, Anderson Powerpole connectors, and lots of wire loom. Top speed is a little over 30 MPH on flat ground, and I’ve got it up 38MPH going downhill. The range is about 10 miles, but I’ve never rode it until the batteries died.
