    I'm thinking to convert a 1998 Mazda Miata to EV :) Can a Warp 9 motor connected directly to the transmission shaft move the vehicle even in a incline grade? What should be the voltage? Best regards.

    Batteries and Charging
    I am looking to maximise ability to go up steep hills in a regular size car, say 1200-1600kg, minimise battery weight, and not fussed about range as my total commute is only 30km. Using a Warp 9 DC motor I understand that for acceleration I need to maximise battery pack voltage to 144V+, but...

    Technical Discussion
    I drove the truck 55 miles just to see how far it'd go in 20 degree weather. As I got home, the brakes blew the front drivers side line. So today I replaced it, it fought me all the way, and I got back in the truck to test drive it. I idled down hill but when I started stepping on the gas...
