What I was looking at was the shock-absorbing characteristic of the guibo. But they're more for not tearing up the drive train when the wheels leave the ground temporarily at full throttle. The MGR doesn't have a clutch, so the only things it would protect against the shock loading from the electric motor would be the CV joints and axles.

As for making a waterwheel, you probably could. I think you could wire the three phases together to produce DC. Unless you're planning on generating 3-phase AC.

This reintroduces the problem of eliminating the differential action. And to get maximum power it would need to be geared to turn at 10,000rpm.

That's good to see. Do you know if the GS450h/LS600h uses the Interchange Part Number: 300-65002? Because from the link:

I know Damien was looking at control of the two-speed transmission inside these units, and I am looking into the HV converter which lives inside the inverter/converter unit.
I've still got one of these sitting on the bench. I was desponded* by exactly what Damien and Jack Bauer are tackling. I've only read the first page of the diyelectriccar.com/ post so far.

Apparently these mount very differently (different drivetrain layout)
but the method to breakdown the communication protocol is the same.

Now if someone could find a smaller Prius AWD-e transaxle and controller in the flesh

I decided to have a look. I found no mention of hp and torque, but it's a tidy little package.

https://www.hybridcars.com/2016-toyo...on-us-markets/
The headline says non-US markets, but the text says Japan only. Maybe Canada? In Japan it's for their Winter weather.

It's mentioned in this article that has a video that talks about active grille shutter, temperature sensing steering wheel and 15" low rolling resistance tires (but not the E-Four). https://youtu.be/WNh6eFtTtlA
e-Four – 2016 Toyota Prius Has AWD System is only for Japan – Video | DPCcars

It doesn't say whose tire, but there is a Bridgstone Ecopia in the right size. https://tiresize.com/tires/Bridgesto...-195-65R15.htm
