Thanks everyone. And this was a Team effort. SO MANY people have helped me get here. I can't name everyone but its been amazing to see the EV circle I am in and how helpful almost every person is. So beneficial to man kind when we all come together like this.

RC and most types of Lithium batteries you MUST know your individual cell voltages charging and discharging.
Don't keep them were you cant afford smoke or fire!
Never above 4.2v never below 2.7v EVER!!!

And by quite a margin. Way to go! You just raised the bar for the others. And with front wheel drive too, that's amazing.


Yeah I keep telling him to put a second motor in the rear... :mrgreen:

That was the plan but with the batteries there is no room left

Hi Arlo

Have been following your project from a distance. Congrats on the very good results!
Got some questions about general ev-projects and the leafmotor, as you have been doing heavy diy and probably weighted most options.

The power you have gotten from yours is well enough, but can that be achieved with off the shelf parts as well?
If not, what would be your advice to someone jumping into a conversion? The little browsing on ev forums I have done, I see advice on 50kw brushed motors basically.
I am looking to convert my s2000 that I would like to be silent and electric (today an e85 turboconverted car dynoed to 420whp).
Less power is ok, as long as I can achieve north of say ~200kw, I would be happy. (Dont want less performance than the standard s2k, as that is much of the cars identity)

This has been in my mind for a few years now and with more and more ev batteries becoming available second hand, things are looking more promising in that regard.
The initial steps would be to get a grip on the size of the components that could be used, and then see if its a good idea or not.

What are your thoughts about a conversion like this? Could the leaf motor be a candidate or should I look elsewhere?

The s2k makes 200kw for a very small window the car will be just as fast with less power when you do it right. But on that note always build for the most power you can. My limits are the battery and controller but not for long in fact if I dynoed right now it would hit 330-350 at the wheels with the 800a parts which are maxing out the batteries.
