Another potential EV builder chimes in...

amazing stuff ya got here and inspired me to make my own electric car. What makes it even easier for me, ive got a neighbor who has his array of 6v trojan batteries, being amazingly old, i could still get somewhere with them.

I had a question though, have you ever thought about reconditioning the batteries, using a desulphator, or pulsing circuit? My neighbor has had his batteries for 9+ years now and some of them are still enough to be considered usable.
And have you also removed the flywheel on your transmission?
