Make your mark on Australia.

Gday Mike,

do you have a blog or web page for your conversion?
an aw11 is my ideal conversion vehicle, so i was wondering if you could tell me a few things.
how heavy is the engine and related components you are able to take out?
how heavy is the chasis and body with no engine?

cheers,
Matt

2.7 t. Disco

No worries, sorry for the late reply, i lost the thread for a couple of days. The kostovs are actually relatively well made, but ive never heard of anyone pushing the voltage to 800V. John wayland used to run an 11" kostov at 200v under load at 2000A, until the carbon buildup resulted in a short, de...

Australian EV OEM Model

an optima set would set u back about $4000, increase weight by 350kg (50% at least), and increase power by 150%, decrease range to about 50km.

Australian EV OEM Model

If you make more than 4 units a year than the whole thing has to go through dotars, which is spectacularly expensive. If you were going to manufacture evs, start with a vehicle thats already been through dotars. As for a one off, a 9" warp ($2400) + 1k ehv zilla ($3000) + 90xlfp40aha ($12000)+charge...

YESA LifePo4 batteries

yes im using them in series with a much larger thundersky pack in my scooter. Yes for large vehicles i would go thundersky, theyre cheaper in larger quantities anyway. Another thing, if you want to keep the bms in the yesa packs, you cant wire them in series, or parrallel. If you want to do that you...

YESA LifePo4 batteries

sounds good.
I own two 12.8v 20AH Yesa packs which look similar to the ones shown on the site. Ive put about 2000km on them, and theyre holding up well. I'll have some cycle data on them when i get around to putting a paktrakr on.

I'd be interested to hear the quoted prices, especially in quantity

2.7 t. Disco

The really expensive AC EV conversion kits are lighter weight and smaller than the standard industrial VFD's budget conversions use. There are a few names for the motor controller, VFD and inverter. All do the same thing, convert a DC bus voltage (usually around 600vdc for greatest effectiveness) to...

EMC scooter batteries

Hi guys, just another bit of info, at 1-2C draws the guieng silcons get 15AH@100%dod. Im guessing the "real" ones will get similar discharge performance. Its good to hear the "real" ones are available at a reasonable price. Based on the performance of the knock offs, ill be looking at putting these ...

EMC scooter batteries

just a correction, the sag at 70A is to 12.2v not 12.6v. theyre stiff, but not that stiff. ill bring a couple to the sun fair and the next meeting. I still have a few good ones.

EMC scooter batteries

Hi ckas, ive owned 2 emaxs (the scooters emc have). The silicon batteries are rather stiff voltage wise, ( will maintain 12.6v at 3.5C or 70A) when fully charged. Also their capacity and voltage sag doesnt get as bad at cold temperature. This is of course all compared at agms. havent been able to te...

Australia aswell perhaps? we seem to have a bit of everything when it comes to resources. Ive come across the lithium scarcity problem aswell. apparently theres only enough recoverable lithium available to replace 5% of the worlds car fleet. but 5% is pretty impressive, EVs would have to become seri...

Power meter - kitset

this kit is similar to the power analyzer and the drainbrain/cycle analyst, just not preassembled and lower power. I wonder if there is anywhere you can buy a pre-organised kit, rather than having to go to the trouble of finding all the components yourself. i wonder how much a kit would cost, the po...

definately sounds like fun. Im up for that....but itll b a little lonely for the first few meets:P

speaking of, i have still yet to see this sierra, very interested in the setup, particularly the shaft encoder. The shaft encoder technology is very very new to me.

finance

Hi guys,

I was wondering if anyone out there has borrowed money to fudn their conversion?
If you have, where did you borrow the money from, and at what percentage rate?
I notice Home does a "green" car loan at 8.99%, so ill be having a crack at convincing them an EV is green in a month or two.

Hi Dave, If your game you can try these guys for nimh: http://www.eurobatteries.com/home.html they sell 13AH F cells, but ull need to make a battery management system to keep them balanced. If your travelling 40km, a higher capacity would be better, space and weight permitting. Do you know roughly h...
