    So cool! With the blue sky and aspens in the second picture, it almost looks like a two tone bus

    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 theseย modules is on the terminal connection so we will need to add aย male spade connector.

    EVs convert about 59%โ€“62% of the electrical energy from the grid to power at the wheels. Conventional gasoline vehicles only convert about 17%โ€“21% of the energy stored in gasoline to power at the wheels. With an old VW… probably less ๐Ÿ˜…

    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 these

    Quintin has been doing a great job on this. You can tell he’s very proud to be working on it.

    John keeps asking how to keep his tranny cool, but doesn’t like any of the suggestions I’ve made… I told him to just put a bay winder transmission in and call it a day ๐Ÿ˜‚

    This project is going to be kickass. We’ve got a lot of wiring in our future. I’ve got a couple ideas on cool things we could do with this to push it to the next level

    Hey John. Looking to get out there soon. I’m in Kentucky for the next couple weeks but may be able to swing by this weekend and next to start to work on this. Call me and we can discuss
