Dave you nailed the problem ( way to go Dave ) , The zilla had come
out of another car and the hair ball was set for the rpm sensor and
stall detect . Lucky for me it was the first thing on my mind when i
woke up the next day . I turned off the stall detect and went for a
test ride . Everything work well , charged the batteries and with a
little cleaning up , we where off to the show. A beautiful day with
lots of gas cars , at first the crowed didn't seem to warm toward the
electrics but after the tire burnning exhibition we had a crowd and
lots of interested people . The burn out can be seen on

Nice looking car, Steve. I'm pretty sure there was a big EV grin
behind all that smoke.

What's it got in it? Motor, controller, pack? Line lock?

25 hawker 1200 and they fit in the car very nicely 12 in the back 13
in the front , a 2k 300v zilla and 11" net gain. He got a racing
clutch for the Porsche shop and I said " this isn't going to do " and
it didn't so the burn out is in 1st gear it held there , with Mr D
using the brakes to keep in form moving . No line lock . In all other
gears the clutch slips badly . took the motor out today and will some
how attach the disk to fly wheel.

When I was a Kid I wanted a go cart so bad but my dad got me a
welder instead, I learned to weld and made my first go cart from an
old lawn mower , I then helped half a dozen other kids build there own
. We all had so many hours of fun working on our go carts but there
where also some kids who's parents just bought them there go carts
and we all knew they just miss out on %95 of the fun . I see my EV
friends having that same kind of fun now building there EVs. If you
think buying a factory built EV will ever come close to the fun ( and
life changing experience) people are having right now doing
conversions , just think about those kids who build there own go carts
and the ones the got store bought carts. Of course there where the
ones who just talked about what they where going to do some day but
never did anything . There where some kids who weren't so handy but if
they made any kind of effort we would all help them . Some would get
used ones and fix them up ,, us kids looked at this as close to
building ones own .. All this seems to hold true for EVs I believe. If
you can't build one Buying a used one and fixing it up , or tow your
car to a conversion show and help do the conversion . Don't be the kid
who just talks about it , waits for Santa clause to bring him one , or
worse just thinks he can't do it , get out and do it now . You won't
be a kid forever.

Hope you thanked your dad!

When I was a teenager I bought myself a welder. My dad was a
machinist / toolmaker, so I asked him to show me how to weld. He
said, he didn't know how to weld and why was I wasting my time on that
stuff. I told my older brother, who was away at college, what my
father said, and he laughed and said, not only can my father weld, but
he was trained to weld under water in the navy. Turns out my father
wanted me to go to college and become an engineer, and he was afraid
that I would follow in his footprints instead. Now I am an engineer
that is also a pretty good welder, BTW :^)
