    I need a chunk of bed metal… or I am gonna weld some cargo floor over that hole!! Must have been a air cleaner hole!!! 662C1266-BD4F-4681-A9BA-F21A9B43BE64

    There was a corvair motor in it from what I was told, and they cut that hole for the carb. I say just throw a snorkel on it for Shasta river crossings😉

    Talked with Michael this morning. He’s stoked on the project. He thinks 408v will be too high for the motor. Wants to setup time to meet and discuss early next week. Franz is there a day that works best for you?

    You’re crushing this build! 💪💪💪 working in those tight spots is not easy

    If you want the most performance, 32 modules split into two 16 module packs in parallel will get you 408v 1000a. 16 modules would be 408v 500a.

    Batteries ⚡⚡⚡

    LG Chem

    Height: 14.25 Inches
    Width: 8.00 Inches
    Length: 6.25 Inches

    https://www.evwest.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=4&products_id=481&osCsid=bd1957e69e626fcd923b72356d1c4a2d

    12 modules will get you 360v, 32kWh (range), 400A, and weigh 456lbs (2 parallel of 6 modules in series)

    LG Chem Super Cell

    Length: 16.75 Inches
    Width: 5.0 Inches
    Height: 4.125 Inches

    https://www.evwest.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=4&products_id=534&osCsid=bd1957e69e626fcd923b72356d1c4a2d

    12 modules will get you 306.6v, 19.2kWh (range),  500A, and weigh 240lbs (12 modules in series)

    Motor 💪💪💪

    The motor that you have chosen needs 275-400 Volts, maximum 1150 Amps (I suspect a minimum of about 200-300A), 400kw!!, and weighs 290 lbs

    The combo of more Volts and Amps equals more power. You can add more of the super cells in series to get more voltage and range.

    See how many you can fit and let me know what you’d like to do and I will call up EVWest

    Hey Franz the model S modules are great. You’d need 16 of them to run the tesla motor. Space for that may be a challenge which is why I recommended the one’s above.

    Just spoke with Michael. His recommendations we’re either using these. 6 of them in series would get you to the required voltage and fit nicely in the luggage space of the bug. Could fit 6 more in parallel to increase amperage and range

    https://www.evwest.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=4&products_id=534&osCsid=bd1957e69e626fcd923b72356d1c4a2d

    He also recommended these JH3 LG Chem Super Cells. 12 would be required to get to operating voltage, but he mentioned that he had just received another version of these modules (JHP) that have 2 already in parallel that they’ll be adding to the store soon after they finish their testing. (to me these look like they’d work better for a bus conversion)

    https://www.evwest.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=4&products_id=534&osCsid=bd1957e69e626fcd923b72356d1c4a2d

    He did warn that the large Tesla motor is hard to run in a bug due to the high current and voltage it needs and that it’s too much power.

    Here’s a good resource I found on their website. https://www.evwest.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=476

    All of these batteries he has in stock and could deliver in 10 minutes. – Michael

    We talked about the Jehu mustang cells and he said that these are going to be torn apart modules with the wire bonds between the cells cut. Effectively you would be buying the cells and building your own modules/pack.

    Another note is that the EVWest modules come rewired with new BMS harnesses so that it’s easier to get things wired up to the BMS.

    Mach E cells or modules? Looks like the Mustang battery pack produces a little over 400v so that will be enough to power your motor

    Still dailying the bug. Still running great. Gave the roof rack a quick restoration recently. Currently in almond color but I may change to a gray.0B22B951-DB93-4659-9B08-8A6127A609DFD7508D8C-295A-4837-8F4D-57537527A8D0C7308EC5-00E4-4B0C-944A-C0F4DEA9B438We’ve had this bug for almost 11 years now.

    Hey Franz, I can call up Michael Bream tomorrow. He always has his ear to the ground on sourcing batteries so at the least could give some suggestions on places to look.
