Question Express your interest in a non road going subforum

OK, due to popular demand I am looking for an expression of interest in a subforum catering for the EV conversions and builds that would not fit into the conventional cars and bikes areas.

The purpose of the subforum would be for Tractors, Mobility, Construction type plant, Mowers, Karts, Dragsters, Tracked crawlers, Snow blowers etc.

Generally speaking, electric vehicles that are not toys but serious projects, experiments, learning curves and useful, but non road going or road legal, stuff.
I guess weird stuff could be accomodated but lets keep it sensible and within the ethos of the forum.

If you think it would be a good idea and would like to add your thoughts, link to suitable threads (please), or offer to help populate the forum then please express your interest here.

There are no guarentees the forum will be set up but if there is a good interest and maybe the potential for a couple hundred threads, new and existing, then we can look at setting it up.

Thank you,
Woodsmith

Woody,

Since all I do is weird stuff, you know where my vote is.

Hey Wood,

A big yes vote from me We need a place. It took me a long time (like 30 minutes of search) to find one of my favorites to show you. http://www.diyelectriccar.com/forums...t=Quadriplegic And of course, JRP3's 6 wheeler. It is in his avatar, but I don't know the thread. And then my http://www.diyelectriccar.com/forums...light=eTractor

I know there are 100s more, just don't know how to find them I'll post them up as I come across them.

Thanks,

major

ps....And the guy with the tracked snow blade pusher. How do I find that? And I could sure use one of those this morning. Found it http://www.diyelectriccar.com/forums...hlight=tracked

Thanks major, there are a good few threads there.
One or two will probaby not move as they have greater relevance in other forums but the rest seem like good candidates.
