Chevy S10 Electric motor running on 12V

Advanced DC 9" motor in Chevy S10, running test on one 12V battery. Insurance company says they'll insure the truck as any other car would be! The final price of the trucks conversion required a line of credit on the house mortgage, went with $9000 worth of lithium batteries. Way better than the lead acid ones at a third of the weight, and last alot longer, four years so far (as of Apr 2013)

First spinnup
More details at http://www.electric-lemon.com First test of EV motor mounted to transmission. Powered from a 12V battery using a contactor to turn it on and off. The tranny has 80.000 miles on it so it's kind of noisy but the metal cart it's on makes it sound a lot worse than it is.
