    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...
  4. All EV Conversions and Builds
    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...
  11. Controllers
    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...
  15. Non Road Going Vehicles
    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...
  16. Electric Motors
    I want to know what weight vehicles the motors currently on the market could reliably move certain weights through the mountains and down the highway for extended periods. For comparison reasons let's assume the motors are geared so that the vehicle travels at 90mph with the motor at max RPM...

    My Rogue's rear differential recently crapped out. As I was replacing it, I started thinking, "What if I remove this drive shaft and replace the drive coupling with an electric motor?" I found two RV batteries. They are heavy but 250 Ah might do the work of the AWD function at least. If I can...

    Hi everyone, I've been fantasising for some time about the possibility to convert a diesel powered boat into a series hybrid, using a diesel generator and a LiFePo battery pack connected to an electric car motor. It would be a semi stationary live-aboard, so run time requirements are pretty...

    Hey fellow car lovers! New here, currently in school studying EE. Over the past month or so, an idea for a high performance hybrid car has been slowly creeping up on me. Think the 918 or BMW i8 and then proceed to completely forget about those two cars. This is not a conversion but a design...

    Hellow every one... I'm planning to build a custom built light weight (about 500kg) hybrid car. Motor will be a 5kw 72v motor. Battery's will be deep cycle, 24v | 10amp×5 total of 1.2kw-120v battery pack. Will a 120v 5Kw petrol/gas generator enough to charge the battery directly (using a dc...
