As you may have noticed, the blog entries have dropped off rather abruptly in recent weeks. I've sent three e-mails and one phone call to Electro Automotive asking about the status of the battery racks/boxes and received no reply. As you might imagine, I'm a bit frustrated with this and don't really know what to do next.
I should be getting the 18 8-volt golf-cart batteries from American Battery Company early next week. This will allow me to at least connect the batteries to the AC controller and see if I can get the rear axle to spin. Napa Auto Parts is willing to sell me battery grounding straps of any length with eyelets on each end so I can hook everything together. With some 2/0 battery cable and some lugs, I can attach the batteries to the controller. For those of you are thinking "That sounds kinda dangerous," you're probably right. I like to remind myself of Murphy's Law that says "Experience varies proportionately with equipment ruined."
I'm going to ask the EV community if anything funny is going on with Electro Auto these days. I'll keep y'all posted.
(Grrr, it's sunny out and I want my 914 targa top EV! :)
