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😉GlennmossModeratorOctober 27, 2022 at 10:23 amPost count: 299GlennmossModeratorOctober 20, 2022 at 11:45 amPost count: 299GlennmossModeratorOctober 17, 2022 at 5:59 pmPost count: 299GlennmossModeratorOctober 14, 2022 at 2:10 pmPost count: 299
Height: 14.25 Inches
Width: 8.00 Inches
Length: 6.25 Inches
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
12 modules will get you 306.6v, 19.2kWh (range), 500A, and weigh 240lbs (12 modules in series)
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 EVWestGlennmossModeratorOctober 14, 2022 at 12:04 pmPost count: 299GlennmossModeratorSeptember 24, 2022 at 10:29 pmPost count: 299GlennmossModeratorSeptember 22, 2022 at 6:32 pmPost count: 299GlennmossModeratorSeptember 21, 2022 at 4:55 pmPost count: 299
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
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)
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.GlennmossModeratorSeptember 21, 2022 at 4:27 pmPost count: 299GlennmossModeratorSeptember 21, 2022 at 2:25 amPost count: 299
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.We’ve had this bug for almost 11 years now. Was Will’s first car in high school for the first 3 years. Then my first car and only (drivable) car up until a year ago.
I’ve packed all of my belongings in at several times
And brought along many friends
I’m very grateful for all its years of service to our family.GlennmossModeratorSeptember 21, 2022 at 1:12 amPost count: 299GlennmossModeratorSeptember 21, 2022 at 1:08 amPost count: 299
