Weber and Coulomb's MX-5

The police were there, looking after public safety -- by positioning themselves at the safest part of the whole road -- the only long straight -- out of sight -- with a radar gun. Bastards........ I used to live up there in the 90's, did 190km/hr a couple of times in our Honda Integra on that strai...

Weber and Coulomb's MX-5

In a previous life, I owned a Triumph TR4. Whatever structural problems your MX5 might have, I am certain would not compare to what we used to call "scuttle shake"! http://forums.aeva.asn.au/uploads/2600/tr4.jpeg My TR eventually sported what was called a Surrey Top, an optional extra glass rear scr...

Weber and Coulomb's MX-5

I was just thinking again about the idea of towing, or in my case, carrying a genset on the back of an EV ute....... and realised it's been done before. It's called a Chevy Volt!

Weber and Coulomb's MX-5

One question I've been meaning to ask you guys...... rego value is usually calculated on number of cylinders/rotors. HOW did they calculate yours, and how much were you charged?

The Queenslanders' excellent adventure

What a BRILLIANT idea......... I am planning to convert an old Mazda ute that is in remarkably good structural condition. I need a ute for moving big heavy stuff occasionally, and it doesn't get driven much. It's also ideal for a conversion because the batteries can go under the tray (and the bonnet...

Real world LiFePO4 lifespan data

Hi Dave....... I ran into this forum (which I note is 9 months old, and 9 months is a long time in this kind of technology...) while looking for LiFeSO4 battery info myself... I'm going to have to do something about replacing my SP1500E... it flattened the batteries (which seem to have recovered ver...
