Hi Everyone, it is wonderful to join this community. I’m bringing an ‘81 VW Rabbit Caddy back on the road with a new traction pack, including BMS and Charger, using 2019 Leaf Modules. It last rolled about 10 years ago as a “Lead Sled”, powered by 20 six volt US 125 deep discharge batteries. I’m looking forward to bringing my knowledge up to date. Other interests are coffee, ham radio, and Burning Man.

Hey Joe,
I'm looking into doing the same. I have an '83 Rabbit is converted in 2000 using the VoltsRabbit kit. I've been through two packs of 16x6V batteries, but range has always been limited to about 40 miles, so I'm considering scavenging a Leaf pack and fitting it in. The alternative is another set of lead acid, but I'd like to upgrade the charging capability to 220v. Any thoughts/advice?
