On YouTube, Rich Rebuilds converted an old T-bucket hot rod to electric using the drive components of a wrecked Zero motorcycle. The motor is surprisingly small but the performance was pretty good nonetheless.

The Smart roadsters were even smaller, so keeping component sizes down is a win for this project.


Lead or follow. Either is fine.

i mean Aerodynamic improovments :P

And how i should use a heavy and complex hybrid with a lot of parts they could wear, when i could get a maintance free System with 300km+ and over 150kW on the Rearaxle? :P

The Zero Components are to weak and brittle for this job. I would drive 200000km+ without touch the drivesystem.

I was looking for confirmation.

Here's mine:

(The one on the right. ) A Toyota HSD part, 98lb/68hp. I have a donor vehicle but no current prospect of getting the two of them together.

I'm not really sold, because it's a single motor/open diff unit. Later models have twin motors and limited slip in software, with 80hp, so far as I know.
