Behind the scenes of building an electric car - The journey
Follow us on a journey of the successes and dissapointments that were
Team Swinburne Electric 2010, AKA tse_10, was the first year a group of
Swinburne engineering students endevoured to develop and build an Electric
Vehicle for the Formula SAE competition. The team hit trouble when they
blew up their motor controller, just over a week before the competition.
The team then borrowed another motor controller which also ended up
blowing. The team then borrowed ANOTHER motor controller, to which they had
some success, until the night before the competition, when it also blew up.
In total the team blew up 3x $4,000 controllers, 6 times (after repairs).
It is thought that the motor is faulty and is causing the issues.

Small Budget Honda Accord Electric Conversion
http://www.useafuel.com - This video shows the DIY simple conversion of a
1990 Honda Accord from gas to electric. It's pretty simple. Remove the
gas motor, install new electric forklift motor, batteries, and motor
controller. After that, charge from any outlet and enjoy.

This video is a prime example of serendipity. While wandering around
Sarasota taking pictures, I just so happen to bump into Jaszy McAllister
(who Ive recently only met on line) of Modern hippie Mag. We officially
introduced ourselves and began to talk. The conversation soon unveiled that
there was going to be a near by press event featuring the Beach Boys and a
1969 electric powered VW Squareback. So completely random and so completely
awesome! Lucky for me, I had both my still and video camera with me.
Forrest Shaw is the proud owner of this beautiful 1969 electric VW
Squareback a.k.a the Green Machine. The goal of the car is to have a green
delivery operation for Pastry Art Bakery & Cafe, Forrests downtown Sarasota
hot spot, while promoting green living and green business. With the
sponsored help of Pete Hanson, Braille Battery and The Hub this 68
Squareback will now live on as Sarasotas first green car.
Forgotten Volkswagen Single Cab
Took the Syncro for a Sunday drive and spotted an old single cab in the
foothills outside Idaho Falls. This is nine hours worth of digging
condensed into a 15 minute video. It had been sitting in a wash since
1967. It was buried under two feet of dirt but it's extremely rust free
given the circumstances. The drop gates hadn't seen the light of day for
45 years. IF YOU HAVE A VOLKSWAGEN THAT NEEDS RESCUED OR KNOW OF ONE GIVE
US A CALL AT (208)200-6053. We also consign Volkswagens if you have one
you want to sell. Thanks Skeeters.
Thanks for all the phone calls and emails about Forgotten VW's that we have
received. This video has helped rescue several abandoned and otherwise
forgotten VW's that may have been left for dead including a very cool 1960
VW Double Cab that we got out of Missouri that had been sitting since 1965.
We also recently returned from Mission Viejo California where we picked up
a 1961 SO-23 Westfalia. This bus had been sitting since 1980. We got a
tip on that bus after someone saw the Forgotten Single Cab video. Give us
a call today if you know of one. Thanks again. Skeeters (208)200-6053
