Ok I'll admit it, I'm a bit EV obsessed! lol
I have a couple of ebikes, one of which I built myself...with help from ES members
I really enjoy DIY and get a lot of satisfaction from the process.
Have been toying with ideas for the next project.
I was fortunate to pick up quite a few CALB LiFePO4 cells last year. I run some of them in an off grid solar system.
There are 16 x 60ah cells I'm thinking of using in a new project.
I also have access to large quantities of high drain 18650s.
Initially I was thinking of a motorbike build but would love to have a go at a car if possible.
If I did a car it would be just for short drives, no commute etc.
I'm about to move house in a few weeks and need to build a shed at the new property. So have some time to think about which way to go.
Initial thoughts/ questions are.
Would 60 ah @ 48 volts be enough juice for short drives? If not, how many 18650 cells and what voltage/ configuration would you recommend?
Which make/ model would be a good donor vehicle? I live in Australia
Thanks in advance
