    Cool e-Cruiser version 1.0 build thread

    YES !
    As mentioned here in my pre-build thread, just got the clearance from vehicle registration office for my project.

    Starting with this frame:

    Some info:

    - final weight should be around 300 kgs, excl driver
    - i want to give priority to good acceleration and hill climbing, over fast speed, 100-120 km/h is sufficient
    - i have enough space for 8 packs of 60ah GBS cells or maybe 8 packs of 90ah Winston cells, need to check that with mockup
    - I'm gonna go for this motor: AC-20 with Curtis 1238-7601, planning to buy at http://www.electricmotorsport.com/st...otors_ac20.php
    if you know about a cheaper place, let me know (can't go with dual hub motor for reason explained at the end of my pre-build thread)

    Next steps:
    - buy the frame , so that i can bring it into my garage and do some mock ups for the motor and batteries (before end of march)
    - then order motor, controller, batteries, throttle, wires, contactor, fuses, dc-dc,... early april
    - then all this back to my builder who is going to help me to mount the motor and battery racks, sometime in june i guess
    - then start to work on the electrical part myself , this summer

    YES !

    Now my project is out of the computer and soon in my garage !
