Yeah of course with money its a non issue. Our little alterped as we call it would work great with about 700 18650s but thats expensive thats why we tried prius batterys. Got two packs out of two cars for under 100. They are not lituem though which was an issue.
What im saying though is motogp getting into it will trickle effect into the open market the same way f1 tech eventully trickles down into our everyday communting lives in our cars
