I’m not as impressed now that I see these electric guys are bringing every Volt to the table possible fucking 3 Phase!! All this crazy battery management shit..
we’re still running our cars on dinosaur remains…. Shits been in the ground for a million years..

EVs convert about 59%–62% of the electrical energy from the grid to power at the wheels. Conventional gasoline vehicles only convert about 17%–21% of the energy stored in gasoline to power at the wheels. With an old VW… probably less 😅
The electric motors are around 97% efficient at converting the energy into motion. The difference between the efficiency of the motor and the overall efficiency of an electric car is due to losses in charging and discharging the battery and converting AC to DC current and back again.
Thats why there is all this crazy battery management stuff. A good BMS will improve your efficiency…. let me find the lead time on theseGlennmossModeratorAugust 18, 2023 at 5:15 amPost count: 327
Spoke with Michael yesterday. He recommended 5 bms satellites (2 in the front and 3 in the rear) and 1 bms controller. He said that they have them in stock.
The 7th cell in these modules is on the terminal connection so we will need to add a male spade connector.John JonesModeratorAugust 18, 2023 at 5:58 amPost count: 13384

What to do with this project????
Dan does want AC and power steering And he wants to make sure he can “bug” the builder for years going forward about service or problems….
I think maybe my “ Passion” for the project is in question…. And for good reason. Sure, I can build the Volkswagen, it’s all the other shit …. I’m not sure I’m up for it either😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥

Glenn… Thanks for your help, sorry I wasted your time..
Dan has been an awesome customer!! I hope he finds the right shop/person to finish it up!
