    Kershaw Designs - alive? Need a motor upgrade (kit)

    Hello everyone,

    I'm writing from Germany and I found the great Kershaw Designs motor upgrades for my Summit:
    http://kershawdesigns.com/Products-Summit.htm

    I want to go a bit faster like those 7-9mph which are exactly mentioned here:

    I wrote mails to Kershaw Designs but it was not possible to deliver them.
    --> Do they still sell those products?
    --> If not, is there any other source to buy the conversion motor (kits) from?

    And by your recommendation, to stay with crawling with the Summit but go faster at the same time, what is the best brushed (not brushless) motor upgrade?
    1) Single Revolver 700-HO
    2) Double Revolver 700-HO
    3) Single DeWalt 14,4
    4) Double DeWalt 14,4 ?

    Unfortunately I could not find any dealer selling those kits over here in Europe.

    Thanks for any hints,
    Benjamin

    Been a while. But I believe the 700 HO is just the stock type motor with higher windings to get more speed. A double motor would get you more speed (no where near DOUBLE the speed) but will radically raise you center of gravity due to the fact that BOTH motors are raised up higher than the stock motor position. And it will lessen your run time (almost by half??). I would suggest single Dewalt 14.4volt. Look around for a dewalt dealer. You can actually do it yourself.

    They took over for Dan Kershaw. I know a phone call may be a stretch. If Dan did chances are he does as well
