Cheap Sealed Lead Acid - kids toy/mobility scooter

Hi guys

All of mine are knackered, and teh kids want to drive Chitty Chitty bang Bnag again. :lol:

Many thanks

Christopher

Re: I just made an electrically assisted bike conversion....

Very smart - well done. I didn't realise Laser cutting was so reasonable. when my Dad used to get it done for work, I remember it being very expensive. .i.e. he made me cut and file stainless steel by hand cos it was cheaper for him and it built character! I was thinking of using karting sprockets a...

£1m Supercar

Firstly, and most importantly, I do not read the Daily Mail, but was sent this link.... So, this guy was given a £400,000 grant from the Government to build a one-off car. Hmmm. I might actually agree with the slant the Mail is taking on this, but only because I'm jealous I'm not getting any funding...

Re: expensive

Hey - that second link is the same as my motor - though mine was longer, I think...and there is a link to my car there too, I'm famous!

I ran this motor at 96v, with no problems at all. Its massive, though.

Re: Test drive report on the Citroen C1 ev'ie

I might have another little rant.... I was out and about in Bedfordshire yesterday, and because of a road closure I had to go past the ECCplc factory. So on the way back I popped in to say 'hello'. It was quite interesting, one 2-post lift - loads of nice big 3-phase motors neatly stacked and a pile...

Re: ADAM SMITH COLLEGE >>>EV

Hi Topgun My only advice would be to trawl through nearluy every entry on evalbum.com. It was the most useful single source of information for me. Note the ranges of the people who have completed their cars, not their estimates, there seems to be a big difference! OK, maybe that wasn't my only piece...

Re: lithium vrs lead

Hi Subevo What spec Lithiums did you get a price for Current, Voltage etc... - and what BMS? I havea Zivan NG3 charger too, which I can get modified. If I can increase my range to say 40 miles my car would be infinitly more useful. The Lead in my cinquecento have pretty much had it - range is just 1...

Re: EV thieving little g!ts !!

I understand if the police were dealing with 4 murders or something at the time, but I seriously doubt it. It was a missed opportunity to catch some criminals! As it happens, my local councillor lives on my road, I wrote her an e-mail on Sunday morning and she popped over in the afternoon. She went ...

EV thieving little g!ts !!

Hi guys I think this is teh second case on here of someone stealing, or attempting to steal a converted car.... Saturday morning I went outside into my quite, leafy North London suburban street to find a rear window smashed on my little Cinquecento. I first thought they'd broken the windoiw to get t...

Re: Bike with push trailer

Thanks Jeremy I was thinking of building one, and it would be pretty punchy - maybe using the controller, motor and wheels from an EVT scooter I have inherited. Its 2kW with a top speed of 30mph, but the scooter itself weighs a ton (well, not quite, but its blimin' heavy). On similar lines, my broth...
