Re: Aftermarket iMiEV battery upgrade project

There is another guy in brisbane, Danie Rykiert, that has put a second 150AH pack in the back of his Minicab. Not sure if he is an AEVA member. Anyway he has it spliced into the wires to DC wires to the motor controller. He has reported seeing over 200km on the GOM and fast charging of 47kW. This ex...

i3 in wide bay

Does anyone know of an i3 in the wide bay area? My boss expressed interest today, he is a dedicated BMW owner. I thought if there was one in the area it would be good to see it in reallife and talk to an actual owner. As opposed to carsalesman rot.

Re: Aftermarket iMiEV battery upgrade project

Ok so welding of the terminals makes it difficult and the freight.
What about the Liyuan cells? Aren't we looking at about $11000 for them plus freight?
I will ask at work about how much it would be on their account.

Re: Hovercraft Conversion

There is some motors that are used on paragliders, they might be the go. Another options is multiples of RC motors. Any idea what power the solo engines are rated for?
Your biggest issue is going to be battery weight, still its possible.

Re: Aftermarket iMiEV battery upgrade project

Yes I am definitely interested.
A thought I had is about how the car counts the Ahs. If it uses a current sensor could you modify/change the current sensor so that the it under reads the current?

You could check out what the Open Inverter guys (www.openinverter.org) are doing with the buck/boost converters out of the various toyota hybrid models. I'm not sure but there might be some models where is separate to the inverter.

Re: Motor controller to run a Vectrix motor.

No it won't be on a vectrix. Will do some reading about field orientated control. So it is mostly only used on industrial vfd's? Brief first looks suggests that field orientated control is more efficient, especially at high rpm. Do your standard BLDC or permanent magnet controls just accept that for...

Re: Max speed of vectrix

There are hacked versions that can go to 125kmh, but I bricked an mc when I tried to install it. Then in the process of swapping out the mc I blew up the charger. That day really sucked
Ohhh nasty. Ok so the motor itself is capable of 125km/h. Thats good to know. Thanks.

Motor controller to run a Vectrix motor.

Hi All, I have a spare vectrix motor here and I have been thinking about putting it to use in a kind of custom motorbike project. Having read about Antiscabs 100 000kms and having 4 motor controller failures, I think it would be better to run a different motor controller. Makes me wonder how long I'...

Re: Aftermarket iMiEV battery upgrade project

Well don't trade it in. Sell it privately, at $8000 it would sell quickly, I reckon.
I would be keen on trying the 93 AH one day, if I had some idea if the car would cope.

Re: Qld Moke

Yes that's a good test but unfortunately wouldn't have picked up all the rust in the moke. Turned out it had lots of small holes near each other. So there was still steel for the magnet to stick to.
