And gyre i think white roof coating will take care of mesh anywhere.........thank you my eplaya heros!!!!!!!!
That's a more complicated question than you might think.
Your best bet is to go on one of the electric bike forums.
Batteries have discharge curves, not flat ratings.
Usually they produce less power in a short time.
1 amp/hour is 1 amp for one hour.
.5 A for 2 hours and so on.
I don't know what 40 max con amps is.
Usually you need a motor controller for an electric motor on a vehicle.
Radically more efficient anyhow.
Most bike motors are 24 to 48 volts.

An interesting design
Designed for the longtail bike
I could have bought a larger turbine cheaper, used, but
since i really didn't have any experience with turbines, i bought a
new unit from Wren. it has autostart which checks the
glow plug, lights it, then runs the starter and feeds in propane-butane
gas til the thermocouple shows 100 C rise. it then starts to
feed in jet-a fuel til the revs hit 32,000.
then it runs it up to my idle rpm, about 80,000 rpm.
the gas runs thru a turbine which turns a max of 65,000 and
then into a gear reduction to give an output shaft max of
11,600 rpm and i timing belt reduce it 2:1 from there.
I built a small motorcycle from tubing, powered by electric. (road legal)
after a couple of years i changed it over to a Wren turboprop engine power.
model aircraft type, about 8 hp.
makes a lotta noise and draws a crowd at bike week, daytona.
n1 is 160,000 rpm, n2 is 65,000 max. output shaft is 11,800.
look at wren, the MW-54 turboprop engine.
