Tesla Try Hard

Without the noise, how do you even know if he was trying? Might have been toying with you. Front wheel up in second gear, he definitely wasn't playing... Been watching some YouTube videos and the new 100D are doing 10.8's at the drags, so it won't be long before they are winning race against even s...

Tesla Try Hard

That he was, kind of gives him an unfair advantage because I didn't know he was up it until he had already started taking off :D Also doesn't help that the front wheel came up in first and second by which time he was approaching traffic, but I still managed to keep pace with the front wheel in the a...

Tesla Try Hard

This afternoon I had a Tesla try out run me (was in front of me) he stabbed it after putting through a roundabout. Yes you have instant torque and lots of it, and low speed off the mark is your best shot, but seriously dude my bike only weighs less than 300kgs with me on it. I must say though it was...

What prices have you been given Richo for 15kW 3 phase? The only prices I have seen were at a home show at may not be the cheapest, but they were talking circa 30k for 7kW.

eFXC Round 2 - Queensland Raceway!

Yeah I guess the 10Ah is going to play a fairly significant role in it. You might need to fit a rear camera to give us something to look at :D

The gas if for cooking only everything else is going to be electric since I can make that myself.

Can you run 2 x 5kW systems on two different phases?

If I can make enough power I would really like to have a walk in cool room for summer.

Most definitely.

Always wanted one of those fancy gates that someone presses the button on the driveway and you le...

Interesting video more VD / pack sag than I would have expected, but that is the great thing about real life footage, it sorts fact from fiction.

What was the rested voltage by the end of the race?

Ultracapacitors for drag racing?

Hey Mack often practicality and logistics get in the road of a good idea... Unless there is a significant cost or weight saving over batteries they would struggle to catch on in drag racing. While the idea is sound, you have to think about being able to recharge them again in a hurry. Yes the capaci...

To Buy Or Not To Buy That Is The Question

I have both a manual Ute and a bike, but we do drive to Toowoomba (~120klms) to see mum, and the last bit of the journey is up the range, so it really wouldn't be all that optimal with that range. For around Brisbane it would probably be ok.

To Buy Or Not To Buy That Is The Question

I think the Prius would be closest to the budget she wants to spend, and you can get some older models cheaper. How much would a battery pack be if you picked up say a 10 year old model needing new batteries?

Maybe could put a bigger pack in and convert it to plug in at the same time?

To Buy Or Not To Buy That Is The Question

Ok well I just showed the better half reecho's I-miEV and she said it was too small and she doesn't want a straight electric for emergency reasons... So looking at hybrids, would the Prius be the car of choice?
