Cool idea. Good luck.
Well there's what I would like and what I think I can reasonable getVery cool, very exciting project!
Any thoughts on your expected finish spec?(range, battery type, 0-60 etc?)
Look forward to more posts!
I think you are on a perfect track with your target setting. I'd say 7sec will be achieved quite easily with that motor and with 100km capable battery pack.Well there's what I would like and what I think I can reasonable get
The DeLorean is about 3000 lbs stock (manual), so this configuration will allow the engine and transmission to come out, plus a whole lot more (alternator, belt driven water pump, exhaust, fuel tank, etc.) Of course a lot has to go in, but I'm aiming for equivalent weight 3000 lbs once done.
I'm not so focused on the 0-60, but I think it should be considerably better than stock <10 secs. I would hope for 7 or less.
As far as range is considered I'd like to be able to get around Houston - about as far as I ever took the ICE DeLorean - long road trips in a 35 year old car can be 'interesting'.
I've been holding off on a battery decision. Seems like so many options are becoming available at better prices. I like the idea of OEM because then I've got a replacement path if I need one.
Control it ? No idea - well no idea that can be bought off the shelf today. But I'm taking the risk that one of several methods will come to fruition... or I build it. My background is software so I'd probably lean towards the CAN route, but the most flexible solutions are likely to be replacement motor drivers.Did I miss what you intend to use to control that beastie?
Awesome project- subscribed, keeping an eye on progress! Post lots of pics!
I also now have the Bosch iBooster brake system (master cylinder and electronic assist - no vacuum) and the AC compressor, both from the 2015 70D.Well, that setup should certainly get you back to the future in a hurry.....
Weight is measured with a scale but an estimate based on two measurements (sum of weights lifting one side then the other) 210 lbsWow, that drivetrain package looks really compact. How much does it weigh?
I assume you have seen and read the other threads from folks working with the Tesla drive train ?Control it ? No idea -
Once I get organized I'm going to do a forensic-like examination of the motor/inverter, probably most detailed on the inverter to see what I've got and start to get an understanding of the best path(s) forward.
It works!. The iBooster from the Tesla 70D with autopilot. A relatively simple way of providing vacuum-less brake assist to an EV - AND only consumes material power when actually braking - AND quiet.Figuring out the iBooster brake system - Starting with Physical Wiring ...
The ECU pack has a sealed connector to the motor control - probably where the power connections pass through. It looks like the ECU is held against the motor controller and has a waterproof seal.
