8,000v per layer, 260c, 950psi tensile strength and is water tight. It has no sticky glue but welds to itself in a second or two and gets stronger. Once welded to itself it becomes one piece no going back once stuck together. Being silicone it can easily be cut with a sharp blade if required. I've u...

List of cars with electric power steering pumps

A friend of mine picked up a reasonably priced electric pump only to find out it required CAN bus input to work. He waisted hours trying to get it working, eventually going and buying another that was less complex.

Just a word of warning to do some homework.

The graph posted above indicates the differing speed of the output shaft given a constant speed of the input shaft. But why? Here is my crude way of explaining it AND why the faces of the universal joints MUST be parallel. As we know, time x distance = speed. and because we can't change time, and th...

Australian Grass Root EV Racing

If it's grass root racing we're after then I think we have to chase the needs of the masses to entice them into the thrill of the technology, cause racing in an event with a single EV wouldn't be much fun, basically this means: as main stream, accessible and affordable as possible.

You hit the nail on the head Coulomb,

Off their web site: " Packs are not available for consumer use or aftermarket conversion kits"

Looks like we'll have to wait years to get our hands on second hand versions of these Image
