|Owner's Other EV||1984 Fiat X19|
|Location||Eureks Springs, Arkansas US map|
|Vehicle||2011 Hodge Podge |
My goal is to build this contraption entirely
from the scrap pile behind my shop. Most of the
auto parts are Fiat with a dash of Dodge and
Chevy. I might have to buy some tubing for the
cage when I get it going.
|Motor||Advanced DC AOO4009 Series Wound DC|
|Drivetrain||The motor is a six inch ADC. I have an Alltrax |
controller and plan to run at least 72 volts.
The power is transmitted to a machined down Fiat
third member via chain drive. The ratio is 3:1.
|Batteries||0.00 Volt, Lead-Acid, Flooded|
|Heater||long under wear|
|Instrumentation||eventually amp and volt going to need a tack |
|Top Speed||I don't know how fast it will go. All I will |
need is 25-35 mph as it is to crawl around my
|Range||I hope I can get at least 15 mpc. I only have |
about 20 acres to cover with a steep hill.
|Seating Capacity||Two adults and some fire wood in the back and |
maybe a dog if he is not muddy or wet.
I am shooting for under 1,000 pounds.
|Conversion Time||hopefully before I die. I spend a couple of |
hours a week so it is not a rush job.
|Conversion Cost||So far $5 for some nuts and bolts. All ready had |
the motor and controller so I am cheating and
not counting that.1/7/2012 spent maybe anther
$10 counting welding rod/wire.
|Scrapped the project and salvaged usable parts.|
