Re: Partially Converted BMW 2002 For Sale.

That is correct. It turns out that these cars are something of a collectors item.

Partially Converted BMW 2002 For Sale.

Hi, I am assisting a motor customer of ours to sell his privately converted, unfinished BMW 2002. He has moved overseas and is unable to complete the project. I have stored the vehicle on his behalf for the last year. All offers will be referred to the owner for consideration. The vehicle has been g...

K&W Tachometer Driver for Sale

I have a very lovely K&W Model TD100 Tacho Driver for sale.
For those that can remember it suits the old Advanced DC motors.
I imagine it would work on NEtgain also.

Brand New, unused, in the box with instructions.
Good price for the right person.

PM me if it is of interest.

iMiev Safari Sydney to Brisbane

Good question, I missed a stop. We stopped at Maclean River Caravan Park for a top up and went for a coffee and a walk. Maclean is a picturesque little town with a proud Scottish heritage. Worth the stop. On the longer legs we arrived most times with not less than 2 bars remaining. For the uninitiat...

Thanks Kurt, sorry to have missed meeting you.
Leela made it to the meeting, I had to fly home.
Right after I got back my computer crashed and I have only just got back on deck.
Here is the itinerary we followed.

iMiev Safari Sydney to Brisbane

This iMiev does not have a pilot signal coming from the J1772. We only found this out the first time we tried to charge at Newcastle. Michael had actually never used the J1772 plug except that he had a "hot" lead going to a 15A plug. Thanks for the pointers Greg, will follow this up. In the meantime...

iMiev Safari Sydney to Brisbane

I just overheard the family upstairs talking about the iMiev that they could see from their balcony. The young kids were asking why it was plugged in and the father said its a very special car that uses batteries and charges up from the electricity. One of the kids immediately said "It doesn't make ...

iMiev Safari Sydney to Brisbane

I did make quite a detailed itinerary spreadsheet for the trip the week before we left. I will post it when we are done with the trip. We have pretty much stuck to it apart from a desperate situation in Glendale on Wednesday where it took us 6 hours to find a charge with just our normal plug and 4 k...

My daughter Leela took my fatherly advice and bought a 2010 iMiev from Michael Symons in Sydney. Just 9000kms on the clock. She is from WA but moving to Brisbane to study this week. I had the bright idea that we might drive it from Sydney to Brisbane so that is what we are doing right now. It is rea...

Warp 11 motor and Soliton 1 controller for sale

I am assisting a friend to sell surplus parts from an EV build that did not eventuate. The parts are all unused but about 2 years old. All the parts have been installed on a frame but never commissioned. Prices are based on 2/3 the US sale price. He has a business so GST has been added. Elcon PFC 50...

Can I fix my TC/Elcon charger myself?

A customer of mine just alerted me to this thread. I sent four chargers back to TC Charger that I replaced under warranty for my customers. I was hoping they would come to the party but I now have to pay repairs on them and freight both ways, ouch. I had them in stock too long. I also have a couple ...

Sprintkhana/WA 2014 sprints - i-MiEV / Volt Barbs

Well done you, Joseph.
You are one of the best advocates for EVs!

I would love to bring the Proton up for a spin but would have to put a lightweight battery pack in it to get anywhere near competitive handling. Better start saving my pennies.

Electric Karts

Maybe we can practically start with an E-kart Challenge at next years Perth Electrikhana?

For safety it could be done as an autokhana type event around a cone track, one kart at a time.

Having a standard chassis and very low COG E-karts would actually be very safe.

Good choice of car ;) We have converted three Jumbucks now. All still going, touch wood... The best thing about a front wheel drive ute is there is plenty of space under the tray and they are built to carry a load. Jumbucks are also mechanically and electrically fairly simple. You need to keep the b...

Its great that you are in a position to take the lead on this.

If an electric can go head to head with fossil fuel burners and have a winning edge, that's really the beginning of the revolution!!

Congratulations to you.
