But I’m going to say save your money and get a cheap second hand bike, as a “starter bike” either from a new keen cyclist who is upgrading
Yep it will save you heaps and get you something really good, are you actually looking at electric conversion?

Re: VF2 SSV Redline - Hybrid EV conversion?

I believe the cars that this fellow is racing have pushrod V8 engines mostly, they're a bit slow off the line.

Throw that V8 in the bin, it just can't compete if you want fastest to 80km/h. 15k buys a lot of electric motor.

Re: Spec my powerplant: BMW E30 318is

Thanks for the detailed reply, I'll watch on with interest and it will be good to know when you work out what it would cost to do the same for somebody else. Definitely not at the stage of ordering batteries as they'll be the biggest expense but there seems to be a lot of options and I would get som...

Re: Spec my powerplant: BMW E30 318is

Would you consider the motors I am using with the inline planetary gear box? It will give you about 660Nm out of the gear box. You can connect it directly to the rear diff with a cv joint. You can see some pictures of how it fits and how it looks on my conversion thread. (Francisco's electric Pajer...

@jonescg I've come full circle on this and want to start looking at getting bits. Kicking myself I missed @a4x4kiwi's kit, wondering who got it and if they finished their build. Then again it would have sat in my garage for years :( I really like the idea of re-using purpose built motors and it seem...

Re: seeking advise - EV batteries oriented towards performance

@jonescg Because I am not good at math, how do your packs compare price wise and density wise to the ElMofo packs? Those things look pretty amamzing but also pretty expensive. Yours look pretty damn nice too.

I'm sure we could do a go fund me to send them to Canberra with a humorous token gift that they made with their trade skills. Potential for massive publicity for EV's.

Re: The full Hyundai Ioniq range headed down under

Took one for a spin, nice, super snappy from 30-100km, didn't seem as punchy off the line as the Leaf which I recall last time i drove it lacked in that 30-100. Quieter than the Leaf. We now have one of each at work. The Hyundai leather wheel is nice and the instrument display changing when you chan...

A Tesla did the go to whoa in 2016. An electric vehicle could win that very easily if done to the level of ICE cars that currently win. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLebwnN6zNY The burnout has to go for a minute, again easily done with the right EV setup.

Re: RETROFIT SOUND GENERATOR FOR EV?

Why risk such things going badly when a simple noise generator would alert those on foot there was a vehicle approaching? Mike beat me to it, but my ICE Golf cruising at 40km/h would be as quiet as your Prius, sometimes I can't tell if the engine is running from inside the car. We could take a leaf...

Looking at the numbers here I'd roughly hit the same 5c km on my converted 350w rear hub drive bike which has around 4300km on it. I only just got back on it this week after a long hiatus. I'm in Canberra so the times work out each way about 15 minutes in the car and about 30 minutes on the bike for...
