Gav's EV Conversion 10 - Installing the Motor
The motor is in! After a bit of a delay, the adapter plate has been created and mated to the gearbox, and the motor has been installed into the Tredia! We had a few delays along the way with problems finding an engineer, our wedding being overseas, the adapter plate & motor not fitting in the first time, and THEN having to get a mounting bracket welded up. Whew, there's a bit of work involved in getting the motor installed but at long last it's in! I noticed in the video that we make that heavy motor look light & fluffy lowering it into the Mitsubishi. It is not. I think it was due to editing out all swearing and straining noises from the video. :) I can finally say the motor has been installed into the car and I think a big Yeeehhhaaaa is in order. That's one small step for Gavin, but one giant leap for Gav's EV conversion.
Renault Twizy, a funny, but useful electric car.
A quick introduction to the Twizy, a electric car by Renault. It looks funny, but it is a nice design in easiness in use and driving. Top speed 85 km/h Range 80 km (if riding properly) VERY tight turns (me happy) VERY small to park (me happy)
