The flexplate was the rotor assembly and also used the motor for starting the engine, so no ring gear or traditional starter motor. The torque converter fit inside the rotor assembly. The bellhousing was the stator windings. The transmission was just a run-of-the-mill 4L60e. It was only a 42 volt system, so likely won't produce significant power levels.

I can't really seem to find stuff on ebay for these anymore. Almost a decade ago when I was fitting a 4L80E to the 2JZ this stuff was all over the place. Either way, for cheap and dirty this arrangement could be fitted to a redblock with off the shelf GM adapter components, controlled with an off the shelf microsquirt 4l60e controller and the motor controls are up to the user.



I knew I had seen that somewhere… looks like something in this general idea could pack a pretty good punch. These 42-48v systems can be used with higher voltages and current levels if you can keep them cool, and have a controller that you can tune your field weakening. The stator design looks like very much like a Remy hairpin wound design. And I wouldn’t expect them to not design it to deal with hv and pretty crazy current handling. I get to work with this sort of stuff a lot, not nearly as much as some of the guys in our power electronics, but dialing in new control strategy and firmware is something that I spend a bit of time with.

It’s refreshing to see this thread back on track and on point.

Did anyone post this http://99mpg.com/Projectcars/mikesinsight/ already? It is a bit dated but it is clever

Yeah that one was kinda famous in the insight crowd. He eventually sold it still configured like that.

Pretty wild. I had not seen that. I used to frequent a site called economodder or something like that, but they were not e-friendly.

I’ve found the hypermiling community to be…. Different?

They are like card gaming nerds arguing over the most minute details. There isn’t an ounce of humor in any of them.

Now I'm torn between buying a used Spark EV for 11k out the door, and buying as much motor and controller and batteries as I can get for that, and installing it in a Volvo.

Buy the Spark, and then immediately install a 15g and cut the springs.

Noob question: all the J1772 cables for home have some sort of device in the cable that has a readout, the J plug, and a male 3-prong plus ground.
Can it be a cable made with a J plug and whatever I have handy at home? Will i be doing a smoke test?

Are you wanting to hook a J-plug directly into your home wiring without a charge controller?

Confused.

Confused.
Asking if it is possible to use straight cable since the car has a charge controller. I do not know what the device in the cable is. I am asking.

I had to look up how the Spark charger controller works.

Ok, so the onboard charger is only rated at 120V. You can plug that into any 120V setup, use an extension cord (if sized properly).

For higher current charging you'll need a dedicated charging station. This basically just controls the 240v and current going into the system and offers an automated way to turn off the charger.

You can buy a J1772 charge controller and TB your own 240v charger if you want. You just need a controller and a contactor. The vehicle side and the charger have to basically "hand shake" that they are there. Then the charging can happen. If the hand shake isn't there, no charge will be pushed, and no charge will be accepted. This keeps the contacts from either the car or the charger being "hot" when not in use.

https://store.openevse.com/products/...ion-controller

The cable can be whatever you want. It's just a ground, AC power, and a signal wire.

Cool, thanks. I read online but got a lot of returns for amazon no-name charge cables.

The no name charge cables are probably fine, they're very simple devices (the charge controllers).

If you wanted to buy a plug and slap on some bigger wire (or whatever) into the "charger", you totally can.

Ran across this link on another board, and thought it was a pretty cheap price for an 85 kW battery pack:
http://store.evtv.me/proddetail.php?...eslaBattModule

$1295. Apparently there's not a great market for used/salvage battery packs, as most manufacturers are offering generous warranties, no one is going to turn down a free new replacement battery from them vs. a used/junkyard battery pack.

The size isn't even all that crazy:

Thats only one module. 21v 5kwh.

A full tesla p100 pack at that price is north of $20K
