Converting a car to electric is a pretty big project, but if you have a good set of tools and mechanical aptitude, you can do it. This book will help you calculate the range and acceleration you'll get with your conversion. It includes a complete detailed schematic diagram, photos, illustrations and an overview of the whole project including a walk through the decisions process, which components are necessary and why you need them, some of the different types of components and how to choose. A page full of useful links for chargers, controllers, battery managers, batteries, motors and other items is included at the end. You will gain the benefit of all my experience working with electrical and mechanical systems, plus many days worth of searching on-line resources and analyzing countless youtube videos. Everything it took to do an actual conversion is distilled into this one comprehensive volume.
