How are you managing battery charging? I only have experience with RC stuff where 6s is common and 12s is huge and everything is 1p.

I have a few different options. Current charger i have will charge 2 99v im planning on using a Chinese bms to prevent over discharge/over charge and ballance. They make them in just about every configuration imaginable. I have one for 20s right now and plan to use that and a 0-30vpower supply to charge the remaining modules until I decide what I want to do. Eventually I'll have 36 gen 2 leaf modules. I may do up to 36s2p or go less voltage but more ah with 24s3p.

If the extra voltage helps with efficiency and speed that will be the route I go. How ever it might take some time to get there. Its going to be an expensive venture ill have about 2k in a controller and charger. Idk about a bms that might get expensive too. I want to look into using multiple 10s bms boards rather than 1 board having to be able to hold 150v. Idk if there are any draw backs to that or any reason I shouldn't. Need to investigate that a bit more.

That ride looks bad to the bone!
I bet that could be fun at the deer lease.

First drive at 72v- 84v fully charged. Way more power in the mid range than it had at 64v. I was told the TSX controller i have was built with 100v parts and that it would handle a charge of 99v. Well I tried and kept getting over voltage errors. I spoke with navitas and the controller is software limited to 86v. So that has prevented me from trying higher voltages. Ive pretty much decided on getting a new controller and I have some golf cart parts I can sell to offset the cost a good bit. Itll just take some time. Probably going to go with a Kelly controller of some sort.

In the mean time I was able to buy another 2 gen 3 modules so ill have 10gen 3s at 72v for 160ah. I have a wild plan using a set of contractors to switch the 72v pack to 144v a the flip of a switch. I need to see if thats somthing I can do on the fly or not. I would think its possible as the controller will likely be powered from a 12v aux battery. 72v 1000+ amps for offroad and 144v 1000+ amps for on road.

This is the bms I am going to use. One for each 20s set.

The plan is to use the discharge terminals to power 2 relays that will enable and disable the main contactor and also my charger relay.
