Hi am Dennis from the Netherlands and want to introduce myself and drop some questions while i am here
I am currently working on a fiat 500 classic restauration. This car was in the first place a project that would be powered with a 2003 Yamaha R1 engine with 160hp. But after I got my new daily driver a mustang Mach-e I changed my plans and want to go for full electric for the Fiat. But I want it also to be a fast car like it would be with the R1 engine. Or at least under 6 sec 0-60 so i can race my Mach-e
. Everything will be adapted to that ofcourse suspension, brakes, wheels etc.
I want to build it as light as possible. Battery 15 - 20kW 80 or 96cells, wheel size 195/55-13 allready have the minilights with 4x100pcd. I dont want to shift gears so no transmission. i am thinking leaf, outlander rear motor or tesla SDU. Ofcourse the Tesla will be the fastest solution but also the most expensive. Originally the car weighs 500Kg. And has a maximum allowed mass of 850Kg including driver and passenger.
I know it would be easy to reach that goal with a Tesla SDU and a openinverter board, but i hope somebody can tell me if it would be possible with a leaf or outlander motor powered by either a leaf inverter or a prius gen3 inverter controlled by a zobmie VCU.
