Im new to this forum.
I have a intrest in EV cars and looking to do a budget build.

But firstly doesn anyone know of in in wheel hub electric motors?
I recent read a article about a university that converted a frwd car to awd and had two in hub motors in the rear tires. Supposedley only costing $3000. $3000 sounds very low for this type of build but i was intrested in the in wheel motors.

Anyone know where to start looking for one?

Or maybe even a motor that would connect to the drive shaft of a rwd.

Im intrested in keeping the engine in place and having some type of hybrid build.

Has anyone done this successfully?

Any belp would be appreciated.

Alright thanks for the reply. So i guess nothibg at this point.

I guess a single motors full replacement would be the most economical and easyiest to do.

Im more intrested in the the acceleration EVs.

Hopefully me and the wife will be attending pikes peak this year. A bunch of awesome EVs will be there.
And possibly a bonda nsx.
