Graphic artist required.

*bump*

Hey all,

I'm now at the point with the design of the new website where I need some graphical work done.

Do you, or does someone you know dabble in graphical design?

I have plenty of photos to throw at you, and a fairly clear idea of what I'm after.

Kearon's EV Capri

Just remember to switch the LEDs back to normal globes for your blueslip.
LED lighting, last I heard, was not ADR compliant.

Fantastic to hear you took it for a spin.
I could hear the EV-grin in your voice when you phoned to tell me :P

Formula E-kart

@Electrocycle - how many kilos do you think Geoff's batteries add to the kart?

@Everyone - I'd like to see some real-world testing (IE: A kart around a karting circuit) to compare the suggested combination against an ICE kart.

Would there be any merit in the possibility of adopting the current standards for petrol karts as far as non-motor/battery things are concerned?

Same frame, same steering/brakes/everything, other than the motor.

Having added me to the lineup of people who do stuff for the AEVA just means that things will be more accessible for the "online crowd". If you don't use twitter, we have RSS feeds also. If you're puzzled about what that means, don't worry about it, just log on to the forums and read things like mos...

Hey Brett (and Alan), Seeing that not many people fill out their location, finding out how many people log on to these forums from Queensland would be extremely time consuming. That said, if you have just a handful of people, you can always start an AEVA enthusiast group, and see how that goes. AEVA...

You may need to stop the battery-trays flapping about also. Weld a few brackets in?

Hey everyone, I'm after some opinions. There is a really great E-kart thread in the Perth area. Are people from other branches interested in building E-Karts, and racing them on a regular basis? If there is enough interest, we could start a new E-Kart section, where all the tech can be in one place,...

Any Taswegeans going to the Canberra AGM 2009?

Hey Rattrap.

I'm from Sydney, but I'll be seeing you down there.
Are you planning on attending the field day as well as the AGM?
(It's on the following day, and will be considerably more interesting than the AGM itself).

Opinions sought: EV value

Rod's EV Mightyboy is also engineered, and registered as an electric vehicle, so it's a no-mess, no-fuss solution (if you're in WA).

He is asking $12,500.

That has a picture of Blair, when he was converting a customer's car from Petrol to LPG.

The link states that his workshop is in Kyneton, VIC.
(Possibly Wes Turner Motors?)

Anyone know Blair?

Did anyone see the bit on Blair Fraser (sp?) who'd built himself an electric car, and now charges it from a wind turbine on his shed?

Nice article, pity the presenter suggested people not try this at home.
