That's good. The 1st gen batteries were their Achilles' heel.

I notice you prefaced one of your posts "December 8". Is this project further along than the images & descriptions suggest? (I have no problem with that... better to be reading a project in the past that has maybe already been successfully completed than a "live" ongoing project that doesn't end up getting finished!)

EDIT: never mind. I see in your first post you say " Today I was able to drive it for the first time." So you're further along than the images show.


What's your motivation for this project? Just curious.
