Hi there. Hybrid test bed... like adding an electric vehicle motor, controller, and batteries, but leaving the gas powertrain in place? Sounds cool, and I think an aerodynamically small pickup is the right platform for it.

Thanks, I'm currently looking at modding the rear half-shaft and tying in there. Lots of options! Also plan on implementing some promising aero-mods.
