Hello all! This is a continuation of sorts of this thread.

I am so grateful to all those in these AEVA forums that have weighed in on various topics regarding our vehicle. Now we have some more progress to share.

Yes, we still have a lot to do (including a lot of wire management), but please feel free share your thoughts and questions (criticism is welcome too).

Check the link below. Oh, I'm the guy with the beard if you were curious.

Apparently, EVgrins flashing all over the neighborhood, congrats!
Nice to meet you in person, hah. Btw. what options (modules) do you have on that ABB? Did you order that ext. dynamic braking unit? And do you plan to mount that display/hand held unit near the dash somewhere? Also for finding the possible EMF leakage, try operate cassette/radio stack or other electronics. And boy the black servo looks much bigger in person(video) than on 2D spec sheets..

Looks nice!
How come you are using the clutch when you drive off?

Hey congrats all! Wow you guys work fast!

It looks cold over there, maybe you should find some doors :-)

Have you got the encoder hooked up? Does it take off really smoothly?

Engine braking working? How have you got it tied in with the pedals ?

Wow - I'm impressed, and just a little bit envious! You even still have space behind the seats!

So that's about 350kg of Greensavers in there. Have you uprated the springs or something? It looks like your Ghia is at close to stock ride height.

Great work!
