The VMX's battery box is 130mm x 47mm x 29.9 mm. which to me says that with a little filing on the 29.9 mm sides of the battery box, we have a fat squatty battery with a low CoG and pretty good battery capacity for at least 10 minutes of run time!
Max Amps will use these cells to build me a normal stack style pack that will be thinner because they will use only a single shrink wrap tube to build the 2 cell pack, so I probably won't need to file the box at all!
You are on a mission. I love it.
I plan on trying some of your other cog ideas soon but I want a good feel for the bike before I do. Last weekend was first time I got to use all 3 of my batteries in an hour session.
Until racing becomes a reality, I will hold off on the batteries for now. Lots to learn with setups etc. Hope it works though, good luck.
