    First of all, what’s your budget? The plug and play kit Chris @ ZeroEV just released for the Porsche 964 is around £60,000 with one ldu and a 5?kWh battery pack.
    Tesla is the way to go if you want big performance. The drive units are sought after and are expensive. Ldu is around $7,500. Tesla batteries are harder to get as well; model Ss are being crashed less it seems and the model 3 batteries are useless for most conversions. ZeroEV and Electric Classic Cars use LG Chem modeles to build their 400V packs. In theorie you could mix n match but managing them will be close to impossible. Leaf modules are cheapish but quite large.
    And can you package one or two drive units in your car without hacking the vehicle to bits? Because if not your only be able to register the car in a country like the US where the rules are lax.
    Revolt just released a sollution for front Tesla motor, rear wheel drive. Should be enough for 3ish seconds to 62mph. Again, won’t be cheap though…

    They factor in regen, brakes in ev’s are used much less than in ice cars

    What would you like to know? I work at an EV conversion company in The Netherlands so I can give you some answers.

    ‘46 Ford ready for testing and programming. It has two Netgain Hyper9 motors and a Torque Trends reduction box driving the rear wheels. 66kWh of batteries in two packs; one under the bonnet, one under the rear deck. It’s quite fast and really smooth. Makes a nice whirring sound as well, subdued but not totally quiet. Of all the cars that have been at the shop the past few months this is the one I’d like to daily.

    I use all of the parcel companies at work. They all are useless when they f up. Claiming an address is wrong even though they delivered there a week before. Bouncing it around a country for no reason. Trying to get parcels onto your island is a right laugh as well. Thank fuck we use a company as a go between so I only have to send them a mail when someone fucks up instead of me having to chase them around.
    DPD driver that picks up at our place is a class guy though so I make sure I spread the parcels making sure there is one to pick up every day because the guy only makes €1,00 at every stop regardless of how many parcels he has to deliver or picks up, and he stops at our place every day just to check even if there are none. The people at the top are the real cunts

    Can’t help you with the DVLA I’m afraid, but the motor and controller combo have an EU certification. Not much use to you though… It makes the conversion a bit simpler; most of the electricy parts are in the box on top of the motor. And it comes with a manual that explains how to wire things up and how the BMS works with different battery setups. Still requires comon sense and reading up on things but it is doable. The Fiat was the converters first conversion, he is a pro mechanic though. Only a few oversights on his part, but they were colour coding related. The diff on the pics is our transverse solution with a reduction gear.

    Can someone make a poll where we can choose Dammits new classic project?

    Havn’t driven it more than a couple of meters to park it inside and it was very scary just crawling along. It is so tiny! And I used to drive Minis… The motor is down tuned in the software because 80kW is a bit much kn a car that had 18kW on a good day. And the owners 18 yo son will drive it from time to time. I’d program two settings if it was mine. One for day to day driving and one for the Max Car readers who allways pull up next to you at the lights because classics are slow 🙄
