So after much reading and watching videos I'm making a slow start on my conversion. Could be some time before anything happens with my car as I'm looking for another gearbox to firstly make an adaptor plate. I have a worn clutch plate to remove the splined centre from. Currently looking for a series wound dc motor. Would like to build a controller but cannot find anything in kit form. I watched all of Benjamin nelsons you tube videos but one thing that wasn't clear to me was, he said he had 6 X 12v batteries and was running 72v, so for a half wit like me that means it was 6 batteries in series, yet when he drove the car up a hill it showed 300amps. Is that possible, or is my thinking incorrect and that for example, 160ah battery has nothing to do with amps drawn instantly. If Benjamin's car had only 6 batteries and did up to 45mph but mostly driven at 30mph and had a range of 20 miles I could see maybe three times as many batteries in series and parallel would give me better range and a similar top speed. Looking at a more up to date set up and figures of £10k I really don't see the point unless it's more the build than the result, as a 3-4 year old leaf sells for £12k and it's a better appointed car than my 62 year old classic. Thoughts anyone?
