ELECTRIC CAR - Part 1
http://tinyurl.com/electric2-car It isn't really a complicated process to do an electric car conversion, but you will need to obtain certain specialized parts. You will need: an electric motor, deep cycle batteries, a controller, a battery charger, an adaptor kit, and various other small parts. But first, you are going to need a vehicle that you can do your electric car conversion with. Any vehicle can be used for this project, but some work better than others. Heading the list are small cars and trucks, as they are light and strong. Your first consideration as shown in the detailed plans is to find the lightest vehicle that will still do the job of hauling you and whatever cargo you carry around. Next, you will want a large DC motor that will produce power for your electric car. The larger the motor, the more power your electric car will have. Don't worry that it will be slow either. Many people have the wrong impression of electric cars; they accelerate as fast as any vehicle on the road and travel at least 50 mph. What about batteries? You will need to locate about 16-20 deep cycle batteries for your car as well. The plans outline sources of batteries, even free batteries that you can find with a little effort. The same source will probably have free DC motors too. It's just a matter of asking. Why do you need this many batteries? In order to achieve a range of up to 100 miles on a single charge. A controller is needed to fix the amount of current flowing from the batteries to the motor which determines how fast you go. The controller is connected to your old gas pedal linkage for smooth control of the vehicle. In order to charge your batteries between trips, you will need an on-board battery charger. That way you can just plug it into any common AC circuit and get charged up again. Doesn't this sound like fun? Isn't it time you got started on your own conversion project?





Kaylor Kit Electric Motor Demo
This is a video of our demo flick for our Kaylor Electric Conversion Kit for the older VW platform. This is an older style Starter/Generator Military Shunt DC motor with a custom made adaptor plate and flywheel from Kaylor Energy Systems. These are no longer being made but can still be found. We are testing a modern PWM electronic controller specifically designed to run these special motor. They are able to do regen too. This motor can push a stock steel bodied VW Ghia to 62 mph with 12 6 volt batteries. It is a 72 volt system. It works perfect. Perfect for a nice fun all electric buggy. Or Bug or Ghia.

Dual Motor Electric Vehicle Drivetrain With Powerglide 2 Speed Transmission Walkthrough by EV West
Here's a brief 10 minute video that gives a nice overview of the EV West 2 speed Powerglide transmission that runs without a torque converter direct drive to 2 coupled Warp 11 motors. Depending on the voltage and current, these twin motors can put out well over 1000 lb/ft of torque, and 600+ horsepower. We used this motor and transmission combination to power our BMW M3 to the summit of Pikes Peak in 2012 setting an all time record for street legal electric cars. The strength and reliability of this system is key. For more information regarding this bolt in drive train, please visit http://evwest.com for the latest updates.





#2) Project Forkenswift electric car: 1st CONTROLLED powerup
http://www.ForkenSwift.com - Here's the Forkenswift's motor being spun up (and down, and up, and down) with a used golf cart controller. (Thanks to the EVDL folks for help with connecting the oddball Curtis.) Apologies for the poor vid quality - this was shot with a 20 year-old camera. Titles are hard to read in some places, so here they are: 1. Another Forkenswift milestone... 2. First CONTROLLED electric power-up 3. No more welded jumper cables, like last time... 4. This time we're hooked up to a DC motor controller 5. From a 48 volt golf cart :-) 6. We've got more juice this time, too 7. 36 volts -- three 12v batteries 8. And, last but not least,a potentiometer ... 9. (What is it about motors that makes people want to rev them?) 10. Here's the actual potentiometer we'll connect to the car's "gas" pedal. 11. Out of the old Baker forklift. 12. We also have the forklift's motor controller. 13. But we're going to try the golf cart controller first. 14. Tee-off time is approaching ... --- Project ForkenSwift is an electric car conversion made using parts from a Suzuki Swift, Geo Metro, Baker electric forklift and a golf cart.
