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.
You might be able to, but you'd likely have to keep the stock battery and BMS too, neither of which I am using.

Who says you can't have regen with a diy inverter? I also want more power than the stock inverter can provide.
