Re: 300hp single seat off road buggy project

Thanks mate. Note sure of actual torque figures. Theoretically it is around 160ft/lbs but that is on paper based on 600amps. I am pushing 1000amps through mine (for short periods). The 0-100 is about 4.5 seconds. The battery pack is about 60kg, 1m long 0.4 m wide and 0.5 high. Cost is difficult but ...

Re: Aussie EV Autocross Special

I always figure you've got to be going pretty hard to get a good car racing photo. With motorcycles you can look well 'ard while barely getting a knee down :) Seems to be running very reliably for you now? Yes thanks. It is quite good. At first I thought the new hydraulic handbrake was a bust. But ...

Can you throw some rough sketches up so we can get an idea of this thing?

Re: 300hp single seat off road buggy project

Also some more food for thought. I run a full 5 speed gearbox. I find it is great for my setup but I wouldn't necessary recommend it for all cases. If you are planning on running a Dunnydore diff then a full gearbox would be bulky and heavy. But maybe a trasfer case would be a good compromise? You m...

Re: 300hp single seat off road buggy project

Hi Eco, Great to see another Aussie on a similar path. My project may interest you as some of the figures are comparable. Mine is a 500KG buggy with 7KWh of batteries and generally around 90Kw of power. It usually lasts for around 6 or 7 x 60-80 second blasts at full acceleration. Otherwise I need t...

Re: Aussie EV Autocross Special

Hi everyone. Appologies for not posting for a while. It has been a heck of a journey (not implying it is over). The car is coming along nicely. But it still isn't competitive. I seem to be hovering around the mid field in most results. Not bad in itself as I am usually up against some seasoned compe...

Re: Aussie EV Autocross Special

I got the car running last night. This is a huge releif as it means I am fairly certain of competing in the event this Sunday. I do still have a few things to do but they are fairly minor. I also weighed the car (As best I can). The car came in at 480Kg with weight distribution of about 44/56 toward...

Re: Aussie EV Autocross Special

Thanks. I am fairly happy so far. I will be transferring the components from my previous car. The gearbox is from a nissan N13 Pulsar. The motor is an advanced DC 8inch. Controller is a ZEVA 1000 amp. Batteries are a 144V nominal portion from a Chev Volt. These components worked exceptionally well i...

Re: Aussie EV Autocross Special

Here are the pics of my latest project. It is similar to my last one but incorporating a lot of learnings from last time. I expect it to be about 20% lighter. Plus it is rear wheel drive, narrower, better suspension design, better aero etc etc. I still have a fair amount of work to complete it and t...

Re: LG Chem 10S2P battery modules - 37V30Ah - 1100 wh [EU]

Hi,

Can you confirm, Is 37V the nominal voaltage? From what you have said that makes the pack 42V when fully charged?

Do you have 8 modules available?

I know you said there is no air freight for these. Are you able to provide surface freight to Australia?

If so how much for 8 modules?

Re: Aussie EV Autocross Special

The timing tents were thrown about despite being weighed down with concrete blocks. Our volunteers conducting the timing wer...

Re: Aussie EV Autocross Special

I had a ball at the Lotus Khanacross at lakeside. The track is quite tricky with a couple of blind corners. It really would help to have track time on this one. My first few runs were average at best but I did improve on my last few runs. I really struggled due to rear end grip. You know it’s bad wh...

Re: Tesla Autopilot issues

What benefit does LIDAR offer over the systems already in a Tesla. I have driven one and the ability for it's sesors to pick up vehicles outside line of sight was impressive. I think Musk's thinking is possibly that adding another method of detecting objects is unnecessary. It already has good abili...

Re: Aussie EV Autocross Special

My next event is a Khanacross on Aug 27. This one is being hosted by the Lotus club so there should be some interesting scalps to claim. It is to be run on the small circuit at the back of Lakeside and should suit my car. I am really looking forward to it.

Re: Aussie EV Autocross Special

I had another competition day yesterday. I was competing in round 4 of the Queensland Motorkhana Championship. Runs 3,5 & 7 are terrible, My fault not the car. But those 3 out of 12 runs were enough to ruin my chances for the day. I finished mid field. PDwdjfYKk5Q PDwdjfYKk5Q D8LrygHz0m4 vvBsC7YJ1SM...

Re: Building a sporty EV. Need some help estimating performa

I think your target is about right but I think you need to be looking towards higher voltage than the 96v. This site seems to indicate a 96-144v controller option https://evolveelectrics.com/products/ac-35-motor But I think it is too close to call. I think to be sure you would need to increase your ...

Hey, Where are you located? I am a current Z owner (1x 240z, 1 x 280zx) both are still ICE. What exactly are you wanting to achieve? The torque of the electric motors can give you some good launch. But only if you choose the right motor, controller and batteries. My experience has been that a fair b...

My next event is a motorkhana and is coming up soon. It will be held at Willowbank on June 18. IF anyone is local feel free to come and take a look. Spectators are free. I'll post another update after the event.
