It might but we'll start here. There's nothing we can't change latter.

Re: Kids EV Toy

I made more progress on the seat. It's really the hard part. I welded on a 1/4" aluminum round then bent a piece of trim around. It is a doubler which really makes the seat: http://www.rc-tech.net/cars2/KB/Seat.jpg http://www.rc-tech.net/cars2/KB/Seat2.jpg http://www.rc-tech.net/cars2/KB/Seat3.jpg

Re: Kids EV Toy

Thanks. We'll see how it does when it's done. The bed and fenders are surprisingly rigid. When painted I plan on a bed liner in the bed. Th fenders also have a 1/4" aluminum bar welded in the edge which helps stiffen them. I don't expect or intend on this to go very fast. I have a few years until th...

Re: electric vs gas theory

If you go to an antique hill climb the Stanley Steemers will out climb any 20-30 years after it was produced.

I was intrigued by watching one drained of all the water amd the residual steem was enough to drive it back into a comercial building and park it.

Re: electric vs gas theory

There are a variety of advantages and disadvantages to both. Just like there are advantages and disadvantages to a variety of gas -gas cars in how they were built toward their purpose. It's not a complete apples to orange discussion and really extends to things like what it takes to produce both typ...

Re: can I get zapped touching my dc bare wiring?

Connecting the batteries on my 72v buggy I wasn't watching the terminals my arms were dragging on. It zapped me pretty good a couple times.

Kids EV Toy

So I like restoring building full sized cars. My electric buggy here in another thread. Next project has been lurking in my head for a grand child. I have a couple years to built it so I don't have to be in a big hurry. I have some metal work I wanted to practice and play with and this will be a nic...

Re: Cushman based build

I finally did what I should have done from the beginning. I moved the transmission back to the axle. Since it is being driven the correct direction it does not jump out of gear. There is no gear reduction so the drive is cleaner. All vibration gone and drives like it should now. Darn thing will pop ...

Re: Cushman based build

Well the belt drive is a no go. I was concerned about belt strength but that turned out not to be a problem. Slippage did though. It is a cogged belt but once it slipped it was all over. Buggy was going no where; even with a tight belt. Plan B....Chain. Works great but noisy: http://www.rc-tech.net/...

Re: Cushman based build

I am working to fine tune the drive. I did not hook up the 2-speed transmission because low speed had me at 28mph. I never brought it into high gear. After feeling things out I decided on about a 32mph top speed so that I could comfortably cruise at 25. rough numbers here. I also had vibration probl...

Re: Cushman based build

I applied for a Manufactured VIN. I had it inspected by the State Police and filled the paperwork. A VIN number was issued and I attached a VIN tag to match the issued number. I then had it inspected by local Sheriff and then finished the paper work to get a title. I finished the paperwork at the li...

Re: Cushman based build

It depends what your intentions are for the straps. These are not functional in respect to noemal suspension travel. These are more to limit the over travel in droop when the suspension is unloaded.

These you can find at victoriabritish.com

Re: Cushman based build

When I put the triangulated 4-link suspension on the 3 wheel Cushman it would flop left or right; because it was 3 wheel. I ended up cutting up and welding a sway bar. Once mounted that problem was solved. With this vehicle, I built a pretty similar 4-link suspension. Since it is 4-wheel the problem...
