Chris here

Likely going to be more of a lurker then contributer, but wanted to chime in and say thanks for all the info 👍🏻

I don’t have a vehicle yet, kind of want to get a Jeep of some kind but mainly just collecting parts as I can. Scored six toshiba mg100q2ys1 out of some old vfd’s along with caps heartsicks and other odds and ends.

Obviously not using all six in the controller lol but gives me breathing room when I inevitably break them because I don’t know what I’m doing 🙂

Recent “couldn’t pass up buy” was a 20hp 500v dc motor. From the looks of it, the original owner sent it in for service (cleaned, brushes, seated, balanced, new bearings, painted, ext) have the job sheet and test run results from the shop doing the work. Got returned to the original owner. They never put it back in to service. One thing lead to another, the company I work for bought it in a lot from auction and I bought it from us for scrap value as we don’t have a use for something this size. It’s not what I was looking for for a first go at EV 😵

For batteries I’ve been collecting dead laptop batteries from recycling places near by, not going bad

Anyway, that’s where I’m at in the EV switch
