I have not finalised the detail of my EV project build yet or got the car. I was originally thinking something JAP, an MX5, MR2 or RX8. However my ideal would be a TVR, it won't be my Griff unless I win the lottery, as I would want to do a car like that justice giving it high power with at least as much Torque as standard with the V8.
Converting my Trev (TVR) is way above my budget currently, so after talking with a handful of very helpful conversations with conversion companies and realising I can't afford it, I will be going the DIY route.
Now my skills of electrical engineering are frankly to be frowned upon, so I've got a hell of a lot of learning and favours to call upon.
First things first I need to find a car, I'm thinking a TVR 280i Wedge (Ford V6), they were about 160 BHP and 160 Torque lbft. So a basic electric motor would give a similar and better performance. The good news is I found a company that does the adapter plate for these, although I will price up locally first. I just need to work out if the space for batteries is good enough. I don't need boot space, however I don't want batteries round my ears.
I will do a video diary on Youtube as well to update you all. Links will follow.
If you think you can help please let me know.
