Bigger holes in the Impulse 92039 viewsWe decided that the rather small bolt holes in the end bells of the Impulse 9" motors were just too small.
So we drilled and tapped all of them out to a 7/16" bolt thread.

Motor wiring, Series5036 viewsAfter discussing things with several people, I decided to wire the motors in series.
This is because I have a fairly hi voltage page, and should be able to get enough RPM's even with the motors in series.
Also gives much better torque.
