Vehicle1986 Holden scurry
It is a re-badged Suzuki Super Carry van sold
by Holden (GM) Australia for two years; 86-7.
I had been driving it but the engine died.
Cost me $200 and needed windscreen, rear
suspension bushes, some rust work and carby
fiddling and was very economical and useful
little van.
MotorAdvanced DC Series Wound DC
Chinese kit originally from Suzi Auto in
Springwood which was in the same kind of van. I
scored it cheaply (2k)after the owner killed his
lead acid battery pack and converted it back to
petrol 18000k's later.
Drivetrainrear wheel drive with original 5 speed gearbox
came pre configured in the kit, cables, wiring
and all as removed from previous EV so very easy
conversion this time.
BatteriesSony Nissan Leaf OEM, 7.20 Volt, Lithium Iron Phosphate
Second hand Nissan leaf Batteries LiFeMnPO4 I
believe and good for 3000 discharge cycles,
guaranteed for 10 years by Nissan and 1-3 years
old, unknown usage. Will be getting a Batrium
BMS configured for the cells.

electric motorbike racer upgrading, for fast
charging they can be placed in parallel.
