    Hi, I'm new here btw, but I want to make a bike or tricycle of some sort, and there is this Emerson c55cxjbd-4353 motor for a water pump for sale, it seems strong enough but I wanted to know if it could be used as a "normal" motor, instead of in a pump. I feel like it could but I want to be sure...

    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...

    Hello, so after years of kicking around the idea I'm finally taking the plunge into converting my '72 Triumph Gt6 over to electric. I've managed to gain most of the basics from forums like this but I still had a couple questions. The motor im using to begin with is a 96v 200amp dc motor...

    Hi everyone, after not converting a car for 7 years, I wanted the best possible motor for my 2nd conversion and started to dig into Teslas CAN bus and learned how to control their drive units. To make the registration progress in Germany a bit simpler, I am using an off-the-shelf, custom...

    Hello all, I'm looking to convert my 65' Corvair, but I'm having a hard time choosing between an AC or DC system. Does anyone have any "lessons learned" or "wish you would haves" using either of these systems?

    I'm on the brink of buying a 72v 7.5kW EV conversion kit from SHINEGLE New Energy Technologies Co., Ltd. I found it on Alibaba. I've been corresponding with the sales guy for over a month.

    Howdy all! I'd like to convert a gas-powered ski boat -- mostly because my family says I can't ;) That said, I'm worried this isn't practical! I've read that I need 90 hp minimum to be a viable ski boat... does anyone know how I could achieve that? I'd like to spend less than $1,000 on the...

    Hi everyone. I'm trying to make an electric scooter, but I'd like to avoid hub motors. I came across a video in which an old alternator is used as the kart's motor. However, I'm still questioning the feasibility. I like the idea of using an alternator because of its cheap power and...

    I've been wanting to do my own EV conversion with my 2001 VW Golf for a while and i've been researching for a while now, but a few days ago I talked with someone that was also intending to build his own AC Induction Motor. Do you think it's possible to build one (not expecting to be the best...
