Try some different camera angles between runs, you it would have been interesting to have grabbed those muiltistar Lipo packs hobby king were selling 22.2 volts 10Ah $60 .galderdi wrote:Thanks, as a minimum I hope to have some better videos and data to work from.

Oh dear, I missed those. Is it finished now? Was it on their website or a link on the forum? If they are still an option I'll jump all over it. I'll need to check out delivery options though.kiwiev wrote: Try some different camera angles between runs, you it would have been interesting to have grabbed those muiltistar Lipo packs hobby king were selling 22.2 volts 10Ah $60 .
They give 350 Amps.run 6 in series and and at least 4 in parallel so 150 volts of the charge and 40 Ah cheap and bloody light.
I bought the last one's a few weeks back, sorry.galderdi wrote:Oh dear, I missed those. Is it finished now? Was it on their website or a link on the forum? If they are still an option I'll jump all over it. I'll need to check out delivery options though.

Thanks mate I hope so, after this one I have just bought a 71 superbug front disc irs rear I plan to go slow full rebuild air bag rear suspension and duel AC50 motors.The Toecutter wrote:I predict that the Beetle with your proposed selection of components will do 0-100 km/h in 9 seconds, reach more than 200 km/h top speed, and get 140 km range at a steady 100 km/h to full discharge. It will be a very practical conversion when finished.
Awesome. I'd like to see that. Give some records a nudgekiwiev wrote:A quick update
Ots of projects on the go, I have ordered vac pump controller chiller, and 2 more batteries going to push out 160 volts and run the twin AC motors in the Hilux ute just more practical ATM.
