Additional FeaturesThe clutch pedal is not used since there is now no clutch plate.
So I have commissioned it as a left foot regenerative brake.
The car stops like using the mechanical brake but puts energy back into the battery.
Mechanical right foot brake is still there if required.
Street Legal. In general I need to charge only every few days.
