Links for evaluating your vehicle & more

In many (most) cases, knowing specific information about the vehicle you
wish to convert or mod is necessary. here are some helpful links to useful
information about your car's weight, wheel base (wb), wheel distance (wd),
gross weight(gw), standard engines, bodies, and more.
You can't very well follow the DYI for conversion if you can't find your GW
to calculate for batteries, can you?

Strange, the edit button disappeared (expired?). I was hoping to only edit the post rather than to bump it. Oh well.

vonwentzel.net The COMPLETE guide to how lead acid batteries work and how to calculate everything from Parallel and Series to Voltage, current, power, draw, lifetime, recharge cycle, SC, Deep Cycle vs etc... a good link for both noobs and pros.

I'm likely to get a motor this weekend, so soon i'll be controller shopping.
I thought i'd add up the links for some places i found for motor controllers.
(at the prices, i just might pay for college instead and build my own.)

Controller Shopping links
KTA-EV.com
DIY Electric Car chart
EV of Washington sales and links page
