I just finished another EV conversion, #143, it was sent to me unfinished a 2 year project. They brought it to me to finish and just left ??? When I was finished (3days) they came to pick it up, and asked if its ready to drive straight to California !!!! I said hell no !!!, They said they thought it never needed to be charged and would run just like a gas powered vehicle..They told me when they wanted to do this project and they did NO reading at all, bought a "kit" and that was that, had no idea what to expect or how it would work !!!

They paid in cash, which was great then had to go into town and rent a 2 wheel dolly to put behind their U-haul truck. I told them over and over NOT to leave it in gear or even take the drive shaft off.. If they don't and burn the ADC motor out, Oh well its on them.... Getting to the point, Not every one reads or takes the time to investigate on EVs...maybe some people shouldn't even own an EV

Its the killer irony. EVs are suitable for 90% of the driving people do ...
unfortunately not all those 90% of people are suitable for an EV ... ;)

In the words of Frank Zappa:
'Scientists believe the most common element in the universe is hydrogen but
I believe it's stupidity.'
