Re: [EVDL] CVT results update

I don't know how you have it setup but I got 1200 pounds of Delphi 8v
batteries in my Aspire by using the spare tire area as a battery box. I
also had batteries under the back seat. So with 10 up front 1 in the hump,
8 under the back seat & 11 in the rear I had a 120v system with an 80 mile
range. I did beef up the springs. It weighed 3350 like that. It now weis
2750 at 144vdc. It's much peppier now. Lawrence Rhodes......
