Some interesting developments here:

Executive summary: There are some new 11" high voltage Netgain DC motors coming soon. Also, EV Components hints at a high power battery development coming soon (but no details as I write).

Edit: also a controller from Netgain.

The controller is interesting as it appears to be joinable.

It looks like low performance EVs are soon going to be a thing of the past Image just need the promise of better batteries to come to fruition and we are in business Image

its good to see more competition on the controller front.
they will have to price their controllers significantly under the zilla to start with to break in properly, the zilla has a bit of a reputation.

motors that handle real voltages is also another good sign.
now we have a choice other than kostov

Now they just need to start developing AC motors and controllers! hahaha
