Re: [EVDL] * Re: Electric Sun Buggy

Some of us also associate the whine of gears with high power sports cars
:) I think a straight cut gearreduction would both be more efficient
and provide the feedback people are looking for.

> Hi EVerybody;
Streight cut gears give you the sound a trolley car lover loves ! HAD
them in one of my early EV's. It, when taped on a reel to reel tape, this
was 40 years ago, great! Sounded like Philly, in the 40's when they had
lottsa trolley cars. Could count the points in the controller as you notched
up!Yes! My kind of feedback! Nostalgic sounds like a GG-1(12 motors,
streight cut gears, Pennsy knew somethingh about efficiency)or MP-54
commuter MU cars.Of course it was hard to beat the EV-1's cool sound. Youse
guyz that drove that know this one?

Good Vibrations!

Bob

Re: [EVDL] * Re: Electric Sun Buggy

you could start off small: just make one. if these
buggies are traveling in a group you could put a
couple of batteries on each of the other [gas]
buggies. start with enough lead to move the buggy for
an hour then during a mid-trip break swap the
batteries out with the ones you carried on the other
buggies for the return trip.

a bit of a hassle but it would be a cheap way to start
using an EV on your trips. since you are building
these things from scratch it should be possible to
make it cheaper than with an ICE

no matter how your slice it, you will need to swap
batteries if you want to run it all day. so it should
not make much of a difference where you swap them.

once the EV has proved itself then lithium's would be
more justified and hopefully cheaper by then.
