Re: Battery pack placement

NCOP LAN 2011 Version2.0-1 "Mass distribution should be as low and CENTRALLY located as possible in the vehicle to assist with vehicle stability". In the Govspeak dialect MAY= we don't really care; SHOULD=we would like you to do this but it's up to you; MUST=MUST. :D Check for later versions of NCOP.

Re: Battery pack placement

Hi, just a thought that one of the regulations is that as little weight as possible be placed behind the rear axle line to avoid spinout . With lead that is a lot of leverage in a corner. :o

Re: Outlander PHEV Range Extender?

Hi Rob, Maybe off topic, but my friend has asked about charging his 2017 PHEV after only a 20k run. Is it critical to re-charge after partial discharge, or can it be left and allow the motor to kick in to re-charge? The vehicle is generally used every second or third day and does not stand partially...

Re: MY17 Outlander PHEV

My mate picked up his 2017 on Friday and very generously allowed me to have a 20k drive. Compared to my 2004 Crewman it was exhilarating! So exhilarating that being distracted by coloured lights and other shiny things I ran a red in the main street causing panic braking by others. And that is about ...

Re: Club For The Elite?

Those damn Stonecutters also keep the Metric System out of America. A good episode and I see the connection to EV2Go's thinking. When I was able to log on to DIYEV, there was the occasional elitist post, but in general a balanced forum. Perhaps the only reason for separating anything would be on a g...

Suzuki Carry Spare wheel

I have had ads on gumtree and ebay seeking a spare wheel for my SK410 Carry without any response. I know that Ohmboy has the same model,hopefully he or other members may know where one can be obtained. It is a 12" 155/80R12, measuring 114.3 mm stud spacing across the centre. I went to one of the lin...

Seems to be similar to the Dutch experimental road charging from some four years ago? The solar road in the Netherlands is working even better than expected: [url=https://www.sciencealert.com/solar-roads-in-the-netherlands-are-working-even-better-than-expected]https://www.sciencealert.com/solar...

AGM charging

Hi Johny; Followed your suggestion of measuring temperature after a run. The two AGM easily accessed were 24C at 18C ambient. But the figure near the pack negative battery post was 111c(eBay thermometer). There was a loose connection at a fuse between the negative pack post and the lead to the contr...

Hi, After ditching my Seamaster pretend deep cycle as recommended by members, but not being flush enough or confident in my skills level to use Lithium (other than for depression), I have changed to Sunstone 80AH AGM.

real time electricity generation

In a rather heated discussion with an Energy Australia callback person she callously said that they don't have to read the meter to bill me. They guestimated my meter reading because the gate was locked. It would cost me $50 to have someone carry out a physical reading. When I less than politely req...

Westfield new installations

Looking at Jeff Owen's pic of his Honda, is that the Honda version of the Sherpa/Suzuki Alto/Daihatsu/MightyBoy Body? I have only ever seen one Honda 2 door locally and the 4 door Daihatsu version.
