well my plan is to emberrass every car on the road.

a friend of mine has 2 fiat x 1/9's in pretty good shape. he weighed the cars, and said both weigh in around 1800-1900lbs

for the drivetrain i think i might go with a custom 10" motor ( its 2 feet long though, very long) dc, series wound.

180-260v 1000A + ill make the controller

i want direct drive, but not sure, and try to somehow get regen

as for batteries im not sure, but since most of the money/weight is going to this i want as much advice no this part.

the batteries shouldnt have to be too big for this small car.

heres a photo of a pretty nice x 19 if you guys arent familiar:



im not going to start buildign this for atleast 2-4 months, but i want to know everything before i start.

also my other thought on the drivetrain, i have a 190lbs ac motor available, used. it came off a industrial air compressor its 3 phase, and is rated i think at 220v~6000 rpm. i was wondering if i get this motor, could i make my own controller/regen?

thanks
