    Not your usual EV question + some ignorance on my part. I'm currently (no pun intended) wiring a 96V / AC50 / Curtis1238e in a home-built hybrid sports car with ICE rear drive, and EV front drive for added torque under acceleration. My goal is to have the two throttles physically linked (cable...

    My whole, feverish EV research phase started when I realized that my truck is a horrible option to drive 40 miles (round trip to college), twice a week. Then, I found this article. https://www.motherearthnews.com/green-transportation/convert-car-to-hybrid-zmaz93jjztak Now I'm hooked, however; I...

    I am continuing to consider options to create a performance hybrid by powering the rear wheels of a FWD ICE vehicle. The best options so far are either a full Tesla Model 3 rear suspension/small drive unit swap (best for power, but worst for battery voltage requirements) or mounting a Hyper9...

    Hello, I was recently tinkering with the thoughts of adding an electric motor to the Miata in order to make it all-wheel drive, I have been thinking of ways to add power to the car, and electrifying it a bit seemed to be one of my thoughts. Is something like this possible? What would be a good...

    I'm pretty new to this community and I'm just getting into my first EV conversion. However, I'm very confused about where to go with the motor and inverter. First, I would like to say I'm just a college student and I'm on a very tight budget so most of this surrounds the cost of these...

    Good morning everyone! I know this is an odd, and potentially unrealistic, conversion and I figure I should lay down some basic expectations. My friends and I all have 2018-2019, high performance, sleds so I am not looking to break any land speed records, or reach unattainable ranges. In fact...

    So I am new to this forum and working on cars in general, but given extra hobby time by the current climate, I've been reading up on how cars work and how I might fulfill my dream of having a hybrid sports car. The plan would be to get a 2020 Toyota Supra and install a ZF plug-in hybrid...

    I'm new to this forum and looking for people who have built, are building, or just interested in a hybrid sports car or similar project. I'm building a street legal, track capable sports car with home built chassis, mid engine / rear drive ICE, and front drive AC motor, mostly using parts from...

    Hello fellow members. I'd like to find out if a conversion of a 2014 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid to FULLY electric is possible. So far I have disappointing mileage in my Crosstrek (regardless the advertised 29-33 MPG average I only get as indicated in the info screen only 16 MPG). I love this car...

    Hello everyone! I have what I hope is a relatively easy to answer question: I want to convert a 2wd ICE vehicle to a 4wd-ish vehicle and i'm wondering, to transfer power to the front wheels I assume I will need to switch out the whole brake/wheel/front suspension assembly for a 4x4 one with...

    Hello all! I am new here to the forums, and am looking for some surface level help (at least, at the moment I am). I have a 1996 2-door Tahoe that is my pride and joy... except the mileage. On a good day i get about 13mpg city and doesnt really change with towing. With that mileage and a 30gal...

    Hi, I want to operate Curtis DC Motor Controller's throttle via CAN-BUS (Curtis already support CAN input for throttling). In this regarding, I would like your confirmation that can we directly control DC Motor Controller's throttle from vehicle's OBD2 CAN-BUS pins (check attached image)...

    Hey everyone, This is a lengthy explanation and I assure you I have looked for threads like this. Maybe I suck at searching. Either way, forgive me if this question as been posed before. I have access to a Mustang II (It's either a Cobra or a Mach 1, I can't recall immediately, but it has...

    Hey guys, first time poster here! Sorry if Im clogging up the site with noob questions. I tried to find my own answers but was utterly swamped by info and got pretty lost. Anyway, in the future I'd like to do a full conversion, but for now I have a different project in mind. I'd like to do a...

    Howdy, I have a 1964 Honda S600 that I modified to use a 2007 CBR1000RR motorcycle engine (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsbfzmPCYX4). I am planning to add an electric motor in parallel with the motorcycle engine. "But why?" Five reasons: 1. The car doesn't have reverse, which has become...

    Hi everyone! First post. I bought a 1985 Honda 250sx ATC (3 wheeler), and I absolutely LOVE it. I primarily use it in some light dirt and tall grass, and it performs beautifully. But there have been a few times that I've attempted to take it through deep mud and water.The results were less than...
