Your chargers would take about 15 h to recharge, so basically you could go 20 mi every 16 h or 900 mi every 30 days. Not what I would consider a good use of time.
er... circumstances like driving this car back to WYE's home - 900 miles away - which was the question he was answering? 30 days to pickup a 250$ car, is not productive use of your time.Chalo wrote: ↑Feb 28, 2018 12:52 amThat sounds like the attitude of someone who wastes far too much of his time in a car. If you take command of your life rather than letting circumstances take command of you, you don't have to drive much at all.AlanDominique wrote: ↑Feb 27, 2018 9:45 pmBut, if you insist on a figure, then your 7 kWh pack would roughly give you 20 mi of range in this vehicle.

I haven't ventured as much as 10 miles from my home ever on my current e-bike, and I don't own a car. The resources I would otherwise squander on a car, I use instead to live in a centrally located neighborhood where I don't have to go very far for anything, and where I don't have to waste my time just getting around.
For going farther, I can use transit, ridesharing, taxi, or carpooling with friends. I find that I very rarely call upon any of these options.
Whoa, that's insane. It would be better performance art to push the car 900 miles home. I should have read back further.
Fair enough, I was a bit rude and should have been more helpful.
Thanks, I should have wrote that myself. This is a good idea because the car really is worth $1000+. It's so cheap because it is pretty much impossible to sell to someone in Louisiana -especially without air conditioning. Just the AmpZilla 1kLV with hairball and radiator is worth $1000 if someone has the patience to part it out.
Was directed at chalo mate - for having a go at you for explaining the impracticality of driving 900miles in a car that can do about 20 mi a day
