Newbie advice needed

Richo

All the plans I have read so far, require the electric motor to be coupled to the gearbox via thew clutch.

I have just about prepared a 1986 Corolla Seca Hatchback so that I can convert ir to an electric car. I've got the motor out, exhaust and fuel tank off and stripped it of unecesary parts, such as the fuel lines in order to reduce weight.

Perth Branch Meeting - November 19th

Is anyone welcome to attend this meeting.
I am presently stripping down a small car, to get it ready to put an electric motor in. I would like to learn more about electric cars before I get to the stage of fitting the motor and batteries etc.
