dc motor/dc generator,

hi fbear, no I understood that you were not trying to create perpetual energy and that you were only using one drill to power the other drill as a proof of concept. All I was say was that what you were doing was closer to over unity than it was to perpetual motion… To me it would seem that you had a...

First EV

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome, it is nice not to feel abnormal. On other forums when I would try something a little out of the ordinary or off the beaten track I would cop flack for not doing what has been tried and proven a thousand times before. Simple fact of life is I am not like every...

First EV

I will apologise in advance for any stupid questions I may ask, but being totally new to the concept of electric cars there seems to be such a massive difference between them and their ICE counterparts. A quick bit of history on myself… I have been into performance cars for over 20 years now and I l...

dc motor/dc generator,

Correct and there is energy being consumed in the repulsion of the magnets, so it is not going against the law of thermodynamics, but since magnet repulsion is essentially free (for the life of the magnets, which is reduced through pole switching) in this case it is a free lunch once you fork out a ...

Auto trans?

^^^^ Agree painting before modification is a bad idea for reasons given. In a previous life before I got fat and lazy and moved into IT, I worked in a high performance workshop where we built supercharged engines, drag strip autos, 9" diffs etc. I also used to work as part of a pit crew on a top doo...

dc motor/dc generator,

What you’re trying to achieve would actually be closer to over unity than perpetual motion. Perpetual motion is the ability of an object to continually move under its own power, which as many experts would have you believe is impossible (just because they have the laws of physics on their side is no...

60s Model Mini Minor

A mini is still on my potential candidate list… I owned a fairly high performance one (bored and stroked 1275, ported head etc) many years ago and fell in love with them. I got to the point of nearly bolting the turbo on, but due to the head coming off an ex race car that ran on methanol it just wou...

Sydney Lurkers

Hi Sydney Lurkers! I have been browsing the forums for the last couple of days trying to get myself up to speed on EVs, and I have been hanging out for the August meeting since I discovered the website a few weeks ago. I am still in two minds if I want to go down this track, I absolutely love trying...
