Sorry it's taken quite so long for me to do this! Here's a photo of the underside of the car. This is with the car fully loaded (90kg SDU and 200kg battery box). The photo doesn't really help much, but the distance from the bottom of the drive unit to the ground is 85mm. I'd say you probably wouldn't want to go any lower than this!hello,
I am new to this topic and group as a friend of mine has a lotus Elise and we are investigating if we can do something similar.
He asked me to review your work and see if we are able to do something similar.
Great work by the way with the whole build and the oil pump solution. Great to see your progress and I look forward when you can update on the driving experience in the next weeks.
As you have the drivetrain already in position, do you have me some information how high the drivetrain is from the floor level? Would it be possible to take a picture from the underside when the vehicle is on its wheels, purpose is to estimate if we could lower the SDU a bit more in the vehicle and have some more space on top for example for batteries. Also the driveshafts, from what I can see your shafts would run quite straight into the differential. It would be interesting to see the angle when the vehicle is on the ground and when it has the wheels off the ground. To check what is clearance to the wheel triangles. As the battery is not yet in place, the vehicle would still be quite high from the floor, but would already give us good idea.
Thank you for the great documentation and I like the professionalism of this project.
