Can you achieve your performance goals for £1500?

No, not unless you are a top rank scrounger.


I'm working on that... :)

Used to be pretty good; I'd say 'watch this space', but you'd need to watch somewhere over there... ->

Okies, so people seem to think it's a do-able thing.

Anyone got recommendations for learning about motors/controllers/batteries/ etc? or Suggestions for specs for motors/controllers/batteries (to achieve my minimum spec)?

...Thanks!

See, I've got someone who's happy to fabricate and fix all the major bits that require welding in a few days, if I go down and help (I tried to arrange it before christmas but it'll have to be next year)... And brick seems quite a good option, aerodynamically he's not all that (being somewhat of a b...

the 1500 quid challenge

So I was talking to Nikki last night; and brought up the subject of conversions, and of cheap already-done conversions. And said that I'd ruled out the possibility of converting Brick on the basis of cost, but she should keep her eyes open for a cheap conversion that meets my needs (range of at leas...

Help! Adverts needed....

Hence our rather paultry claim result. However, if we can provide lots of nice shiny adverts sh...

*waves* Hello Jack, so you made it over here then :) I'm notionally here for my mum's Enfield EV (currently waiting a reply to our letter for the insurance); although I have faint urges to do the Viva - mostly because I realised that I spend a grand a year on petrol just commuting to/from work.

Insurance advice

Anyone got any advice for dealing with the insurance company who are writing off my mum's enfield. I presume I need to get them to confirm that it's a category D write off (I think) - 'cos it's just water damage. Structurally it's still perfect :) I also need to get them to agree to sell us the car ...
