What is a "GT 2"? Many, many cars have included "GT" (for Gran Tourismo or Grand Touring) in their names, so "GT 2" means something to you and nothing specific to others. For instance, if it is a Porsche 911 GT2, then say that (and in that case it's "GT2", not "GT 2").Car is a GT 2
Thanks - that makes the situation much more clear.Sorry it’s a bradley gt2e very early electric car based on Vw beetle running gear and fiberglass body
Interesting!It is a gte but it stopped working so the guy I got it from started converting it to gas.
So you wouldn't want to go back to the original low-power motor and lead-acid batteries, or use any original electronic components, but you can put better and newer components in roughly the original configuration (motor mounted to stock VW transaxle, battery boxes each side of motor and in front compartment).I want fast and range. I know these two things don’t go together...
A pretty substantial fraction of the recent posts in this forum are about using Tesla components. It wouldn't be reasonable to rehash all of it in this thread, or even to provide a complete list of links to relevant forum threads. Here are just a couple of long-running discussions of these drive units going into current projects which are mechanically similar (VW/Porsche air-cooled):Tesla drive is what I was thinking as well.
Any one have good info on them?
With a Tesla drive unit you still have a transaxle - it's just a single-speed, so no shifting or clutch. The same is true of any other production EV drive unit; the Nissan Leaf is the most common alternative. To me, the main advantage of the Telsa Model S/X small drive unit in this case is that it places the motor behind the axle line, which works well with the VW's semi-trailing arm suspension.I was thinking use the Tesla so not more be transaxle shifter clutch ect. And use Tesla or some other battery.
