WTB: EVCapri needs a couple more Thunderskys

Hey all, Yeah, I've been a bit of a stranger around here for a loooong time - but am now back on track, EV Style ;) My EVCapri is in need of a couple of TS-90's. Could buy new ones, but getting new ones to mesh with my 5 year old pack presents issues. Anyone got a couple of reasonable ones lying aro...

Sky Energy LiFePO4 Bulk Buy this Week

Guess what? I was all ready to rant about these great cells, but Sky Energy seem to have lost the funds I transferred. No, I'm not kidding....it's been 14 days since the funds left my account. AND SE have confirmed the account details I used were correct. AND, to top it all off, I've just been told ...

Hey all, I finally watched the segment last night - well, at least the second half of it. Is it common knowledge yet that they had installed an old Kostov motor - which (I'm told) spins the WRONG way around - thus, they had 4 speeds in reverse and 1 speed forwards - THAT's why they couldn't get the ...

Motor efficiency Vs Amps used

Hi Matt, A 1k or 2k Zilla is a bit of a given, I realized a little while ago that a Curtis just wasn't going to cut it. I also realize drawing the sort of amps it is going to need is going to reduce the capacity fairly dramatically. Problems is as Andrew pointed out I don't know if I am really going...

Hey Valen, email me thru evcapri.com, and we'll do it. I'm thinking I'd keep it simple - ge rego'd with bulbs, then fit the LED modules afterwards - you can buy 'em in the same bayonet fitting, ready to swap in/out in a second!

Yeah, I heard about the comments on the show from a mate. It'd be a case of if the show were seen to be 'pro-EV', (thus, anti ICE), then the sponsors and suppliers of the cars and toys that actually make up the shows content might be a bit miffed.
