First and foremost you’re going to want to join the more active forum. I’ll pm you the link because the mods here keep deleting it. This forum has lots of old builds but not many of the old builders. That’s a fun story for when you join us…

2 6374 motors (4kw each) Paired with a 12s5p Q30 pack should give you plenty power.

Also, thanks man. Boston actually has so many people riding nowadays. It’s great. I’ve noticed how cyclists seem to not realize how much faster we are than them hahaha. I was doing the esplanade and realized the street is far better. What part of boston are you in?
