Hi EV2G0, yes I'm hoping that the current W50 is up to the task. The current box seems to be in quite good condition and, as you know, they have a good reputation of being able to hold power/torque being used in many conversions over the years. What ICE motors did you run them behind? I've already m...

Hi Richo and Johny, apologies for the late reply, I've been travelling.

Landed these cost roughly $0.98 per Wh with the high current terminals.

I've been talking to HEC regarding a BMS and they're looking at designing their own.

EnerDel modules arrived today from the US... http://forums.aeva.asn.au/uploads/2723/EnerDel_Modules.jpg Did a quick check of voltages and most modules are sitting at 39.0 V or 38.9 V with a single module being the exception and sitting at 38.6 V. The plan is to mount 12 of these where the rear seat ...

Tritium fast chargers

The website shows a promotional shot of their charger at an undisclosed location, this is not false advertising as they're not claiming to have installed anything. Generic pictures like this are used everyday for product promotion to give a prospective buyer an idea of what it might look like, nothi...

Safety and paying your way

I agree with Johny, if you want a fair system then base it on vehicle weight. That way the amount paid is not dependent on the power plant type. To give you an idea of how unbalanced it is now, by converting my WRX to LPG I'm now paying roughly 65% less in fuel taxes (excise and GST) each week at th...

Thanks for that, I now understand what you meant by the car itself - the captive thread area that the bolt is attaching to must be of adequate length (depth), contain a minimum number of engageable threads and be in good condition, regardless of the actual bolt's strength characteristics. Obviously ...

Hi Johny,

Cheers for the reply. I'd be very interested to see the bolt shear figures if you're able to share. Are you able to clarify what you mean by the bigger issue being the car itself?

Here's hoping the battery pack will meet my expectations. Image

Electric Racer beats field of petrol cars...twice

You've definitely stirred things up and it would be a shame to see the car retired so quickly. I think the vehcile would be ideal for hillclimbs, even if it did mean minor adjustments to the ride height. There's an Ultra Race Car which was brought out for the Legend of the Lakes Hillclimb last year ...

Hi Weber, Many thanks for the editing tip. A very handy work around indeed.

thoughts on an electric people mover?

As an owner of a 7 seat 1997 Discovery I can say that if you intend to use it regularly to transport two extra people in the "cargo" area I would not like to be one of those people.
