Long time no posts!

I'm still here, if it matters to anyone or not yet I do not know.
The car is up and running mostly, everything on the previous list is accounted for and installed, pretty much...
The main pack voltage is 108 volts right now however one of the main batteries is iffy to say the least. I am getting the car painted next week or the week after, a bright metal flake blue, should be fun.
It is street legal and currently (Pun intended) draws 40-60 amps at its top speed of 50 MPH. With another three batteries and some modification to the speed controller programming to give me a little more control, I should be able to hit 60 MPH and be drawing 50 amps on the flats. hills like to pull a bit more than that...

I sold the old Geo engine for $150, a rather nice chap who also shares my last name car to pick up up in what else... A 1990 Geo Metro with 500,000 miles on it. Very interesting encounter.

The alternator for the wind turbine is operational, I just need to have the tower I bought last year hauled up here and make some blades and a hub, shouldn't be too much trouble.

Well, it's probably about time I get some sleep, lots to do tomorrow.
