Pretty much. It has been around for years. Still, It is good to keep up to daye with the latest set ups he has. We should have a sticky thread on it.

direct drive, no gearbox, no fluids except in diff and to keep controller cool, batteries darn expensive but for under 50K you can have a drag car that ruins almost anything.

Yes we've had this subject before...but thanks for reposting it because it reminds us of how important John's work and message is. It also rekindles my interest in this being the ultimate fantasy direction for my own wagon. Tho still so much to learn to make it a reality. (might have to practice on some other cars first?)
Unfortunately this technology is still expensive, so a good time to learn the theory I guess...tho working in telco construction I see pallets of high-end UPS batterys everyday...sooo tempting!
D, his daily blue 1200 still has the transmission in.

The whiteZombie with twin motors running in parallel/serial matched with the Kokams give it amazing mileage.

I for one have been thinking about it one of my b10s I even bought 2 expensive DC motors to run them this way but without
the ridiculous amps his running on the track as they dont last.

I love the quip "Weve got Amps!!" :))

Wurz you wouldnt have to worry about the rear seal fumes :)

haha so true, hadn't even thought of that!
Seriously ppl should be approaching engineering companies for sponsorship if they have the smarts. Maybe its even the direction our automobile manufacturers could (should?) be looking in, what have some of them got to lose ey?

Makes you wonder where we'd be if Nikola Tesla, hadn't been written out of the history books :(

Ive started with a 7.2v 1/10 Datsun 510 the other day(expensive enough!) ...Maybe just gradually step up the scale ;)

AHAha! scaled up RC technology :) maybe you can do the solar charging also :)

I saw a citroen 2cv converted that did 60kms and weighed the same as the factory model yet accelerated at 3 times the speed.

Gov and Big wigs couldnt let Serbian technology rule over Edisons as that would ruin cartels.

With high Oz dollar, Lithium batteries are getting cheaper however I would have loved Zebra batteries before they were bought by GE the Rsholes never to be liscenced for EVs. The Zebras used molten sodium aluminumchloride (NaAlCl4) cheap as chips but now only used in remote locations for telco and other comms bases/antennaes etc would have solve base load energy storage issues of wind or solar hands down. Wasnt the most powerful battery for EVs but young technology and even Rolls Royce and Mercedes Benz had EV prototype limos using them.
