I hope to have everything on board minus cell_man's LiPo's by the end of February. I'm thinking of using some SLA's just to ensure the system is working, and that will hopefully be on display for the Perth Sun Fair. I checked out Charlie's website Re: fibreglass, looks like a good contact. I know nothing about moulding my own fairings, but given the lack of originality with most e-moto conversions, I think some fresh fairings will look the goods. I hope to make it a little more aerodynamic than the original RG too.
I'm hoping by then I will have word from Gary about a BMS and a charger for 105.6 V and 60-80 Ah worth of lithium. I've budgeted for the batteries, but would prefer if someone else paid for them
Unfortunately people want to see a finished product before they throw money at you. Maybe I'll be able to try her out at Barbs in May? I want to dyno test it too - no good quoting Agni's figures if you don't have RWHP.
Otherwise, I migh just have to enter into the TTX-GP
That would attract a lot more interest and potential sponsorship, not to mention raising the profile of EVs in Australia. I don't know of any Aussies entering the IOM???
But it's coming along as quickly as I can pour money into it!
the Electric RG250 - Dual Agnis, Kelly 1200A controller, 6 kWh of A123 cells from Cell_Man and a shitty old chassis from 1985
Top speed 180 km/h, max current 600 A @ 100 V.VoltronII
Say no to spaghetti junction LiPo! Assembled Hi-power LiPo packs of any size!Come on Casey! If you want prototype racing, throw your leg over something with lithium in it
