This will become a Plug & Play Kit for our customers after we have done an extensive testing (minimum 750km going through several charges).
What are we doing now:
- creation of the user manual
- sorting out the packaging
- Battery regulations
- looking for a decent charger for this kit
I am aware that regarding parts there is alot going around and personal choices may be different for some people here.
We also have to keep in mind the pricing of the parts (with margin) and delivery times for our customers.
So if you prefer other parts above this build thats fine, if you have positive input please dont hesitate to let us know and we can look into it.
Pictures coming soon and I will keep this thread updated with our next steps
