    I’ve heard that putting the 125 or 140 Lifan in it gives it some pep!

    That’s rad! I bet that landing was pretty rough with the single front shock

    Those gates are so cool especially now that they’re all smooth!

    Agreed! More accessories = more chicks鈥 I think?

    Whatever happened to “pop the top panties drop”? Get an interior already!

    Didn’t want to hijack the pgsg thread but here’s a mechanical item that doesn’t have circles JJ. Check out the clutch around 10 min mark

    Here’s the functional schematic. The gray box is supposed to outline the motor that we used, so all of those parts plus the transmission were one piece. However, if you go with the industrial motor you will have to buy the motor, transmission adapter, and motor controller separately.聽 There are obviously more parts then just this, but it gives you a better idea. It definitely isn’t cheap just yet, but hopefully once the market becomes saturated with EVs we will see this being a much more enticing option. If you want a further breakdown on the parts we used email me moss.glenn@gmail.comfun

    That bus is a project the guys at VW have been working on for a while. Some of it seems pretty cool. While the mirrors and rims are a bit much for a bus the process behind them is super cool!

    Basically they tell the computer where the load points of a design are and then let it generate it’s own design. rinse & repeat and you end up with something wild and organic looking.

    This guy has been using it to build ‘hackrods’

    Hey Andy!

    Definitely I have a file I could share with you. With the EV scene at the moment there are two directions: convert with new industrial motors or convert with used EV motors.

    I chose the latter because it integrates several items that I know reduce the reliability and offers better ‘bang’ for buck.

    I have a function diagram that illustrates it pretty well I’ll post up later

    No roadtrips this summer yet and we’re both itching for one… Maybe some back roads up in Big Bear? Mostly just been used for cruising to the breweries on the 101 and getting babes to take pictures of Kula hanging out the window. IMG_0731[1]

    Finished up my senior design. We ended up realizing that there wasn’t going to be enough time outside of regular class to design, fabricate, and test the rear suspension this semester, so we focused our efforts on getting a running drivetrain. We tested and mapped the pins for each battery which tell us important things such as charge states, current outputs, and temperature. We were able to test the charge and discharge the batteries and run the Small Drive Tesla motor on a bench. Here’s a picture of the battery box we built and some artwork I put together.

    That’s a badass bus! One high, one low seems like the perfect setup

    Sucks that this happened in my own driveway after we got it looking good, but Will has the know-how to fix it and now the money to fix it with his new job.

    The project is going ahead without the bug at the moment, getting all of our batteries and motor components working together on a bench
