Surprisingly, your weights looks pretty close to a non-EV early car.

So you should select your levels based on how you plan to use the car - just as if it was not electric.

Where are you hiding the battery weight?

For your "street ride with occasional track use" I would recommend level 2.


What type batteries are you using, and where are they? More details on the EV conversion please.

Wow, purest be damned - that's pretty cool.

What is the range and performance like?

How long to recharge?

What did it cost?

Hey Chuck, Thank you.

I will have more pics and Conversion Kit on my website soon, in quick say, this all project has started from the notion that it COULD BE DONE be ordinary guy like me with just a Drill and the Side Grinder from Home Depot in the garage, with open source parts, such as the Motor Controller.

Now this car has:

- 48 cents cost to charge "full tank" (0.04 per kwh x 12kW -80%DoD)
- 65-70 miles of range on the "full tank"
- 16kw battery pack
- 12hr to charge from 110v
- 6hr to charge from 220v
- Car has "eco" and "race" modes - it pushes into the seat...
- Top speed is 65 m/hr - I have not try go faster due to the tires out of round, long time sitting in the garage before I've got it...

I am planning to bring this car to the Race Track Palm Beach International Raceway to see that it can do, so I need rear coil-overs to balance it.

-Youri

Those look like R flares. Did you roll your fenders on your own?

No, it been welded by previous owner, also they put 69-70 front Suspension and S-Calipers and twisted "banana" arm bushing holders to lower the car.

Also, Looking for any cool suggestions...

Chuck,

I understand you recommending level 2 shocks.

What coils would you recommend (how many lb) based on weight distributions?

Thank you.

I'd recommend you get the Level 2 coilovers. This includes the Level 2 shocks with the matched springs, already assembled and ready to go on the car.

This is a lot easier than trying to buy the shocks, then sorting out the rest of the bits separately.

I have two TRG COIL OVER BODYS,, thats it,,I really dont know if they would fit the opening in an early car, it depends on the coils I guess.

Question Chuck... I read that you sell reinforcements for the rear. Do you offer reinforcements for later chassis like the SC/3.2 Carrera? And for the front?

Our super-extended upper perch moves the coil below the cavity. No need for clevis adapters, these fit as Porsche intended.

We have them in choices of non-adjustable, adjustable, and double adjustable configurations.
