New to the site but have been reading articles for the past few months. My daily driver is to large to even attempt this but recently I found a Bradley GT a co worker is looking to trade me. Now the car tips the scales a little over 1500 lbs and has the existing VW beetle transmission, I also have a fiero transmission available. What I am hung up on is what motor I can use to power this car with. Looking for 120 or 240v motor, not looking for speed as much as range. I would like to hit 70 miles on the interstate. As far as weight or any fabrication that will not be an issue on the mechanical side as I have been modding cars since I was 10, working on my uncle's show cars. The electrical part could be a bit hairy but I have done wiring jobs on Semi Tractors/Trailers and some on older vehicles. But anyone have a recomendation as far as motor? Preferably something with lower kw useage...Target is 2.5kw but I can modify my existing plan to be a bit higher, no more than 7.5kw.
