Kaylor Motor Adaptor Electric Car Kit. This is installed in a 69 VW Ghia.
We are testing a modern controller to power the old Starter/Generator
motors for these Kits. These conversion kits were specifically built for
the old VW platform. They work great but work best on the old fiberglass
Extened Range Trailer Project
Extended Range Trailer Project is underway. It should be a simple affair
but I am sure some will have ideas to make it as complex as possible. There
will be some issues to resolve but they should be workable.
E Roadster Project is now running and drivable. I am in the process of
properly bottom balancing the pack and will be adding in more cells for a
total of 60 100ah CALB SE Cells for a total of 192 volt nominal system.
Starter/Generator. Basic setup. When you remove the field cable the field
coil metal shoe is what becomes magnetized and that is what allows the
motor to spin without any field energy. It has great speed because there is
little holding the armature back. But has little torque. You need field
power to energize the motor properly. If the field shoes are magnetized and
you remove your power in a nut shell you have a permanent magnet motor but
the magnets really are not permanent but it acts like one. Very little
strength. But create an electro magnet and the motor now has greater
torque. With stronger magnets the higher the torque and slower the motor
per given voltage.
This is a modified SepEx motor. Modified by the manufacturer. Not your
normal SepEx motor. But very durable.
Electric Ghia Update. Windshield installed and new rims purchased for the
project. Not new but nice aluminum rims.

New VW Bus - Concept Bulli
Back in 1950, Volkswagen engineers called it the Transporter 1, or T1.
Americans later called it the Microbus. But Germans always labeled it the
Bulli, and in 2011, the Bulli is back. This time, however, no fossil
fuel-fed mill can be found under the rear hatch.
The six-passenger Bulli concept you see here is a reinterpretation of a
reinterpretation. At the 2001 Detroit Auto Show, VW rolled out its first
Microbus concept powered by a 3.2-liter V-6. Nowadays, priorities have
changed, and the internal combustion engine is replaced by an 85 kilowatt
electric motor with 199 pound-feet of torque.
A 40-kilowatt-hour battery cell resides under the flat floor and can propel
the 3190-pound, front-wheel-drive bus to 62 mph from a standstill in 11.5
seconds. Top speed is limited to 87 mph. Engineers say the new Bulli can
travel 186.4 miles on a single charge -- far more than the Nissan Leaf's
claimed 100-mile range. A full charge can be had in an amazing 60 minutes
when it's plugged into the correct power outlet (what voltage outlet was
The front hatch was constructed to accommodate a multitude of Volkswagen
mills, including 1.0-liter and 1.4-liter gas or diesel direct-injection
engines. So those wanting some classic gasoline powered fun could
theoretically have it if the Bulli hits production lines.
Designers wanted to stay true to Ben Pon's original bus design by
maintaining simplicity. Blunt ends with short overhangs define the vehicle,
as do extra-large badges and wide windows that allow a multitude of light
The cabin space continues on as a simple environment. Two bench seats can
be folded in a variety of ways, or if need be, the entire rear bench can be
completely stowed. An iPad serves as the main passenger interface and
controls entertainment, Bluetooth, and navigation functions.
So we have to ask: Do you want the Bulli back?
We'll have more information on the newest Bulli, so stay tuned...
