Weber and Coulomb's MX-5

The pump I have installed on my auto transmission made a lot of noise when I hard mounted it to the transmission. I then mounted it with rubber vibration mounts and it is now very quiet.

That 5 pin connector is probably JTAG compatible, so if you can find out the processor type, you can download the existing firmware.

Eday Electric Hatch

A new Chinese manufactured, Australian designed EV is due to be released next year. At sub $10K cost this could make a big market impact. It will be interesting to see who will buy a car that can't exceed 80km/hr.

Just got a reply from David who has been speaking to QT as follows,

Information on EV motorbike conversion – QT advised that it will require a new application to be submitted – ie: they don’t know and will assess and provide a requirement. But it would be based on the VSB 14 V2.00
