Yeah his conversion is coming along. He's just got a bigger Danfoss controller running on the beast from what I know.

you can't move posts and only admins can move threads. I've shifted the Ebay finds over to Parts & suppliers. PM me if there's any other threads you've made that need moving to the new topic.

Evening Cruise/Social meet

Once some more members have their EVs rolling (and road registered), perhaps there could be an evening cruise/social meet organised. Say on a monthly basis (for now)? As well as meetings, a social meet so that members can check out each others rides, catch up and go for an EV cruise around town. If ...

Thanks for adding an EV Racing section

Definately agreed that EVs are about performance! Next conversion will be a performance EV for sure! Rob, our AEVA Media Officer, came up with the description/tag line for this EV racing section. Image

We have bought 15 55volt 100watt DC supplies for our EV, these accept 90 to 260 volt AC or up to 360 volts DC. We ordered these items specially and worked out to be AU$29 landed.

Silicon Chip - September 2007

Agreed... I find that difficult to believe. Was the article sponsored by an oil company? :P Although CO2 is more natural than Cardon-mono pollution. What else does the petrol car give off other than CO2 that the electric doesn't?
