Crowdfunding the ideal electric vehicle

Once again, NSW RMS mod sheet for EV's is only classed as an engine mod. In 1986 my son & I shoehorned a 253 with Celica cast iron 5 speed and Torana 2.78 diff centre into a 149 3 0n the tree EH. All that was required was front seat belts and brake upgrade to the equivalent Torana model.(Torana boos...

Some "don'ts" for EV building

Consult state regulations before even pulling the ICE. For my Sirion I made a nice battery box in the spare wheel well, sealed & ventilated to atmosphere. Battery weight was 100kg. I downloaded the NSW VRSS sheet (july 2013)which discourages extra weight behind the rear axle;handling issues may be c...

Pumped hydro and crazy energy schemes

Interesting about the 3rd tank set aside only for fire. My friend's new rural house at Linton Vic. has a reserve of 10,000L only accessible by the CFA. If the house runs out of water tough luck. The CFA's water must remain untouched.

hi, Yes, I would like it; the only query is freight. I have a friend at Palm Beach where it could be dropped if freight is too expensive.. The last freight quote I had was rather radical so I'm trying to keep costs down ( yes I know, you want to recover your investment). Have you had it running sinc...

Charging NSW Whitepaper

For those of us with ancient leadsleds, those locations would still be too far apart. But as charging moves towards a common standard ( as ICE did with a smaller tank nozzle fitting for unleaded } the ideal partnership would be between MacDonalds and EV owners.
