Waiting for Motor, Inverter to arrive!
I've ordered a MES-DEA system, 30kW continuous, 90kW max power (about 100hp+ or so).
Waiting for it to arrive, wish it wouldn't take so long. :) I feel like a kid waiting for a toy to arrive. Trying to come up with the battery system now in the meantime.
Been reading up on EV conversions, and the pro's and con's (look at FAQ #6) of auto versus manual transmission, and I've decided to stick with a manual, but without a clutch. Supposedly you don't need a clutch? I'm still not quit sure how it all works, though, so I'm going to keep the clutch and clutch pedal and just not use it. Going to remove the flywheel for reducing rotational mass, which I think is ok.
Added the car to evalbum.
