Hunter EV festival

Thank you Gabz, we got 2nd place in the Pole Position prize. Unfortunately our gearing caused us to pull too much current up the hill. Pete did however lead Open Class for the first 35-40 minutes and lead the chain classes overall for about half an hour. All a big learning curve really. Feel free to...

ABC Story 10 bucks a litre

Correct Coulomb, our house here in Perth is a terrible orientation and we spend a lot on heating in winter. We built a big kitted out 'shed' down at our farm after reading a lot of passive energy building books and it is amazing how constant the temperature is throughout the year. Using solar panels...

ABC Story 10 bucks a litre

Interesting that if we used passive solar design and actually made it law to have new houses oriented in a passive solar direction with the long axis then heating and cooling energy budget would more than halve in most Aussie homes. I personally thought it was a well balanced show although what got ...

EV Segment on the ABC's Checkout program

Also a quick 2 cents, the in-efficiency of drilling, refining, shipping and trucking petrol to all the petrol stations should be added onto the true amount of CO2 emitted by ICE vehicles. With the coal, atleast there isn't a huge CO2 footprint in terms of mine to steam turbine and once it's been con...

Well Done again to the River Raiders, that makes it three consecutive wins. You are looking like Audi in the World Endurance Series.

Hi Chris, looking good so far. Impressed you got it over the pits without too much hassle. If you want a spare pair of hands in future drop me a PM. I'm hoping to buy a MIG welder in December as I'm getting lessons at the moment.

So long as you only are using 300 Watts maximum, 3 wheeled electric vehicles are legal on all footpaths and with the exception of freeways etc any road where bikes are permitted to ride along. Can't find the law at the moment but I used to carry it around with me when I drove my old eV Challenge tri...

Plan at the moment is for MC Motorsport course out near the airport, being electric there is no noise concerns.

By endurance series I mean a combination to begin with leading up to a potential 12 hour or 24 hr race.

1200 Wh battery packs that can be swapped out are the basis of the new rules.
