Check out my suzuki samurai on the rubicon trail. I'm have been in the off road community and always wanted to build a electric rock crawler. So I have been building this for a while. It is a mild off-roader as my goal is to keep it street legal. I notice that there isn't very many 4wd electric cars on this site. Check out my YouTube videos and let me know what you guys think.

As for the four wheel drive train, it has lockers in both axles, a 4 to 1 transfercase, differential guards, nerf bars for rocker panel protection, spring over axle swap to lift it 5 or 6 inches. I also have a abs belly pan for the engine compartment.

Being that I have such low gearing when off road, the regen pedal was way to responsive and would either lock up all four wheels or put me through the windshield. So I used A switch to disconnect the regen pedal and activate the a 0-5k pot that is activated by activation at the throttle up. So now I can adjust amount of engine braking based on the gear I am in and how steep it is.
