A good electric build can really kick butt.
I haven't looked at elect kits enough but the extra lbs from the batt lack of range i need and not finding any kits that will be geared just didn't seem like the right option for me.
Plus looking at the calc that was posted by darog seems that id be losing only 15% power not 60% so its gonna be slow but with the right gearing I'm sure ill be alright.
