Re: Switched Reluctance - Ideal for DD Hubs?

I am trying to build a controller (s) for an alternator/motor that is used to boost acceleration of a 2 litre gasoline engine across intersections or up steep hills. It is called a BAS e/assist motor. I know of someone that has one in Spain, but, not sure if he would loan it out. I could ask him. Po...

Re: For Sale: Nissan Leaf Battery modules in FLORIDA :Edit

Forgot to add that I have also used R&L Carriers and Yellow Freight to ship larger quantities of Volt and Leaf modules, so, more BS is shot down.

Re: Switched Reluctance - Ideal for DD Hubs?

Would this possibly be an induction SW motor ? Where would one get the programmed/programmable chip ? Lebowski perhaps ? I for one would love to get this particular chip/board.

Re: For sale Used 18" Kawasaki Ninja rear wheel

I was told by the guy that I bought some other stuff from, that it was from the early 90's. That's all I know. It's an alloy wheel, not spoked.

Will these be residential or where a dock or forklift is available delivery ? An 8-10 module order will be by freight. FedEx gets $50.00 just to deliver to Mississippi State for a 4 module limit per pkg. Got that price quote yesterday.
