Hi TwoTires! It's just the 0.1uF caps for the MAX232 that need to be 1uF. I think that tantalums would be fine.

did they arived? do they look good and has there been any test to see if they work as expected? was there a price ever worked out?
.
The IGBT driver boards are in the USA and in my hands for distribution.
I'm waiting for some passive parts to be bundled with the boards.
Hopefully this will arrive by next week and a final price will be made.
NOW, we will have to came up with the VLA502-01 group buy order.

The VLA502-01 is the WRONG Driver!!

It is pin compatable with the driver board and VLA500-01, but the VLA500-01 is the module you want.


I had started a group buy, but I never got enough people. There needs to be 25 modules to get the first price break. Cost per module with 25 or more is $37.76 each.

Other problem is none of the suppliers have stock right now and most are saying the middle of March before they do!! So im not sure what should be done here.

You might be surprised though. A while back, I said I wanted to buy 12 of some other powerex dc-dc for which there was no stock. I offered the money, and the stock magically appeared after about a week. I was expecting to wait for a few months.

Hello Everyone!

I have been working with Ben for the past week or so to come up with a Revolt sticker that people will be able to put on whatever they want. It is the same thing that Ben has had put on shirts.

Here is the pic!


Untitled by AdamBrunette, on Flickr

This one is 5.375" in diameter around the circle. I can have them made any size you want from 2" up to 23". They are made of real sign material and ment to stick on cars. Currently only white, but other colors should be available soon. I dont have a price on them yet because I dont know the demand. If you interested, let me know what size's and color if not white and I will start getting prices.

-Adam

Hey Guys,
Just an update on my 92 mazda MX3 conversion. The 500 amp controller is great. I tuned it down to 450 amps. Goes about 60-65 kph. Great in the city for many erands in the local area. The 6 batteries (72v) are RV deep cycle lead acid. They are very poor in the hilly area around Calgary. While fully charged they handle this terrain very well. However after about 3 kms (2mi) the voltage gets too low so the battery amps climb. I have had 5 out of six batteries fail. Even though I try very hard not to take them below 50%. Every thing else is great. May try some Lithium ion. However ALTAIR NANO out of Reno hasn't returned my emails.
Have about $4k invested so far and a year of work. And Lots of help from you nice people on line.
Right now its parked for the winter. -23 outside. Maybe I could go around the block just for fun. hehe.
Thanks

I'd like about 4 or 5 of those stickers, maybe 6" - white is good, but orange would be even better.

Thanks

Hey Guys,

I have got pricing.

6 inch from tip of bolt to tip of bolt, will be $10 plus shipping.

12 inch from tip of bolt to tip of bolt will be $35 plus shipping.

Shipping is looking like USPS priority mail which is 4.95 anywhere in the USA.

As for lettering, I dont know about pricing. I dont make the prices. lol The cutter guy does. I can ask though.

I am working on creating a page on my website with paypal buying options. I should have it done by tomorrow.

-Adam
