Thanks Magsy!

Good to know. Easy enough to cut, but a permanent change.

Will a BBSHD interfere with an ISCG-05 chain guide mount?

I've been contemplating another BBS build, but noticed the frame has an integrated ISCG-05 chain guide mount which I'm pretty sure will interfere with the BBS HD's motor can. My searches are not turning up much data, has anyone run into this and what did they have to do? Assuming it does interfere, ...

$9,000obo The Electric towdster is now for sale! It currently registered/insured in California as a 1970 SPCNS "special construction" title. It has a ball joint front end with Disk Brakes, and an IRS rear with drum brakes. The front wheels have unique custom fenders, and it has custom low mounts for the original taillights. Here is the build thread/blog:

https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=50717

The ADC FB1-4001a series electric motor puts a ridiculous amount of torque into a 1,000lb Towdster (it is intended for a 3,500lb vehicle). It can do burnouts off the line in any gear, and while rolling you can break the tires loose with a stomp of the throttle. So much torque, it took a KEP Stage 3 pressure plate to stop burning clutches.

The acceleration at 900amps was too violent for me so I dialed it down to a streetable 400amps, but crazy power is just the turn of a digital dial away. Comes with an 8+kw a123 LiFePO4 battery pack (42s3p 20ah Prisimatic cells) from (3) a123 Factory modules (a 28s3p and two 7s3p). Has a Zilla Z2K 2,000a controller like the one used in the "White Zombie" drag datsun.

In an extreme-duty range test (basically stopsign to stopsign with hard launches) the battery pack was good for 25 miles. More conservative driving with less stops should yield 50-75 miles. I mostly drive it to the beach and plug it in when I get home.

To reduce the number tire kickers, test rides are given to buyers who are serious enough to bring cash.
