I’ve been thinking about it for a few years and finally found a deal on a kit that was missing some parts. Dc motor so no regen. Batteries are out of a Chevy Volt. Front pack is 168 volts 50 amp hour and going to put a matching pack in the back.Interesting. I figured they'd start showing up sooner or later. How big is the battery gonna be? Any plans for regenerative braking?
Awesome. How much does the batteries weigh?
Yes unless it is a Tesla motor that can do 18,000 rpm.edit: I’m an idiot
Is the trans really necessary?
What part of the world you from?
Have you had a buggy before?
Yeah it has a loud contractor that closes when I hit the go pedal. The whining is from the Curtis 1231 controller, the black box over the bellhousing. The v6 I had was really loud so it is going to be totally different being able to hear gear and suspension noise.I have zero experience with these motors. What’s that noise? Sounded like the engine engaged, some kind of whining?, and then mechanical transmission
