  2. All EV Conversions and Builds
    I just purchased a 2004 Mercedes-benz C240 to convert to EV. I have the Electric Vehicle Conversion Handbook, but want some more tips for the parts I should look for since the book is a tad dated. I really want to focus on range (~150V +) and I want regenerative braking so probably AC. I was...

    Greetings! I recently converted an '05 Raptor with an exploded engine into an eATV with a Motenergy ME1602 Motor and Alltrax SR48400 Controller.
