Motoczysz has developed an electric drive system, the MotoCzysz Electric D1g1tal Dr1ve, and will be offering it for sale to teams that want to take part in the upcoming electric racing series. The ability of small teams to develop class leading drive systems is getting out of reach so in an effort to fill the grid, these setups will be for sale in 2 configurations, one has the motor, controller, suitcase chassis, 8 battery packs, the other without the ESS (energy storage system), which is the 8 battery packs.
The batteries are “hot swap” which, I guess, means you can pull into the pits, swap out the discharged packs and head back out on the track. If that operation goes smoothly, it could make electric racing somewhat viable.
The Motoczysz system basically gets you into electric racing without the need to reinvent the wheel. You get most of the basics for a competitive bike, all you do is finish it and show up on race day.
This is an interesting direction for Motoczysz since moving away from their C1, which I would have really liked to see fully developed. They have some pretty nice engineering here, though how far this can run under racing conditions and at what level of performance remains to be seen. I wish them the best of luck.
I received several tips on this, from Joek , Harlan and others. Thanks guys!
