I actually got a ride in JB's car last year coming
back from Joliet. EVen with 11 year old batteries and
four adults crammed in this car still had pep! This
car is a perfect example of how to do it right! JB
wanted me to look at his motor since I was there 8^)
I told him it looked like it was just installed! It
was in absolutely beautiful condition. Anyway I've
been meaning to chime in here as it is a great vehicle
to draw from being I've had a ride in it 8^)

Re: Karmann Ghia Design - System voltage

It's hard to believe that (even under lab conditions) Yellow Tops could last
11 years. I'd love to learn how he pulls this off, especially in an EV. For
most of us, they don't last 1/2 that long even under less strenuous service,
such as in a camper.
