Good evening ladies and gentlemen. My name is Alex, from New York, USA.
Just finished catching up to the whole thread.
Awesome job Paul and the gang!

I am planning a conversion of a 1999 Audi A6 Quattro to electric. Bought a donor and a Baldor 20 HP motor. Em2515t.

First time doing anything like this, was inspired by Paul`s DC controller. Can't wait for a kit for AC.
If I don't covert it, that would be the first and last $x,xxx price range project my wife will ever let me do :-)
Someone in this thread mentioned rewiring AC motors for more speed/power at less Voltage, but the links are dead. Can anyone point me in the right direction for this information?
Also I got the motor upstate New York for basically scrap value, $125, they had more and also a 30 HP unit that weight 330lb for $150. If anyone needs the source let me know. All Baldor gold em series.

Thank you, keep up the awesome work.
