aerostealth — Your link is not to EV World! I clicked without looking and now Facespook will feel entitled to look through my sock drawer.


Is it like this one? (I took these pictures in Glenwood, OR)


Golf cart axle and lead-acid batteries.

A recently published blog at EV World on electrifying a classic Ford Model T and what it would do for the performance. By John A Gilkison and Phillip R Knox
I'm not signing into Facebook, never liked it.

I think this is the same thing in the form of a blog.

A Classic Ford Model T versus a Modern Electric Ford Model T
By John A Gilkison and Phillip R Knox
A Classic Ford Model T versus a Modern Electric Ford Model T
Quote:
How swapping the engine and drive train of a classic Ford Model T could create a much better driving experience, save energy, and reduced emissions. This blog revisits Henry Ford's and Thomas Edison's idea of producing a electric Model T for the masses using modern technology and examines the benefits a modern electric drive train would bring to this classic car.
Will have to copy & paste the video links apparently.

The videos aren't helpful. JG prints out a graph and tapes it to his monitor? The one comment says the plan is to use the Model T differential.

I wonder what's the Cd of a fender-less highboy Model T roadster. I looked for specifications of a random golf cart.

Quote:
The electric vehicle runs on 48-volt power, motor and electrical systems. It uses four-12 volt batteries, a motor shaft direct drive train and a limited slip differential transaxle. The gas cart has a four-cycle, 24.5 cubic inch engine, a single cylinder valve train, and a starter and generator electrical system. It uses one 12-volt battery, a continuously variable automatic drive train and a helical geared differential transaxle. Although the electric version only achieves 4.4 horsepower compared to the gas version's 13.5 horsepower, both max out at ground speeds of 19.5 mph.

Golf cart have a 'ground speed'?

20mph is not much but putting it on 15" wheels would help the gearing.

The first, I guess... A roof on top of the roof makes that it doesn't get deadly hot in the full sun. Plus they might need it for storage space. School buses don't have large storage compartments by nature.

School buses have a rollover standard to have met.

So, let’s ruin that on an already top-heavy vehicle with dirt-crude suspension & steering, and make everything that’s bad, worse.

Nobody said it is safe. I hope they won't use it to move school kids, or anything.

Too bad the rollover standard on my motorcycles and convertible isn't that good.
