Re: Bye Bye Nissan Battery

Yeah changing bits in the code won't change the spec on the electronic parts designed to take a certain voltage and current. All you could do is double the capacity. And I'd be surprised if the Leaf etc could suddenly take double the pack size. Rip out the back seat, fill the boot, upgrade the suspe...

Re: Which Motor?

I Like Bridgetown!
So a motor that has 34kW@5,500RPM and 74Nm@3,500RPM.
Rod is just round the corner - can't you get a Motenergy system off him to do that?

Is the diff really 4.37:1?

Re: TE Connectivity contactors

No I got mine for AUD$25.10 inc gst landed. But as a big time buyer I bought thousands of dollars of parts in one order and I get discounts on top of that. John Doe off the street has no chance... They are quite good as they are really 2 seperate relays in one. So I can use ONE as a mini contactor f...

Re: Which Motor?

I've also found a Chinese AC motor which is supposed to be equivalent. Firstly I notice the Chinese motor is a very high spinning motor. More resembles a large outrunner?!? At the nominal voltage tested is does 6400RPM! So to get the claimed power it has to spin much faster. I probably wouldn't sug...

The Japanese import would be of some interest as they have the Toshiba SCiB batteries due to the colder climate. It would be chea...

Re: Hydrogen

CSIRO announce quite some time ago that they were working on this. They weren't specific in that article what they had achieved recently. I'm guessing it's that they have a prototype to show people - one step up from vapourware. You'd hope that it would "rival our LNG export industry." That's the wh...

Well there are motors that would double that.
I think it was Yasa that has a 200kW 790Nm motor.
One per wheel... 400kW mini
But now that is blood money.

Re: Total NOOB to convert Classic Mini

Power is power. Torque is Torque. The electric advantage is that there is more area under the graph... So normally a graph of torque on an ICE is a short curve around a specific RPM. Electric will typically be flat until equivalent RPM then drop off. The only confusion really is most electric motors...

Re: Total NOOB to convert Classic Mini

I'd guess the miev motor+cvt would be about $3.5k. Probably too much to pay for something over powered. There is a PMS150 in Spain on fleabay 263856087480 for $1,500. I'm skeptical about the free delivery tho. It claims 13/35kW and 20/80Nm. Not too sure on the peak accuracy tho. How much peak power/...

Re: Total NOOB to convert Classic Mini

I think it was because he wanted a BEV not a hybrid. The prius electric motor is too integrated to use. On the other hand a minicab / miev would be good. Possibly on the too much power side. But it has a usable transmission that could replace all the mini stuff. Goggle ZAB-U67V Not easy to come by a...

Another Option I was thinking about was using parts from a wrecked Prius or Civic. I don't have any knowledge of how the Hybrid systems work or even if the electric motor can be separated from the ICE??? Funny you mention that. You can buy the electric motors off ebay already separated. But as othe...
