  1. In the theory stages of an odd build and I'm not sure if it will be driveable.

    All EV Conversions and Builds
    Howdy everyone! So for starters, I'm about a year or so away from even starting this build. Second, it's going to have a gas generator and is going to be an overland 4x4 with a Land Rover Discovery II as a base. The original plan is to take something like a 2007+ Tahoe 4x4 and drop in the...
  2. Likely problems with the Kia Soul OBC?

    Batteries and Charging
    I just bought a Kia Soul on-board charger for $950. I also downloaded the shop manual, which gives the pinouts and other details for this OBC.

  3. The ChevLorean

    All EV Conversions and Builds
    I returned my Mirai to Toyota at lease end in June, so now I get to borrow my wife's Chevy Bolt when she's not using it, and otherwise bike or Uber around town while pondering what car to get next.

  7. Exocar Electric Conversion!

    Technical Discussion
    So I'm working on taking a Velocity Rails Exocar and installing an electric motor in it. I'm wanting something with high torque, so for my budget I've decided to take a salvage car or two and use the parts from them. I really really wanted to do a Tesla drivetrain however from what I've read it...
