I was just lookink at alternatives for AC motor, I see there are plenty on breaking Leafs.

So can the leaf motor be used in a DIY build mounted to the cars own gearbox using a third party controller.

Are there any "how to" threads?

I saw the adaptor plate thread looks good.

There are some pretty good DiY controller designs that are working with the Leaf motor. This one is the one I will be using...
Can you use the stock Leaf inverter, if you keep the stock throttle and sensors? I don't see why it wouldn't work, as long as the inverter thinks it's still in the original car.... plus this way, you can keep your regen.
