I’ve been thinking about electric car conversions. They seem pretty complicated.
Here is a quick and dirty idea that I’ve suggested to my heroes at Garage 54
Throw away every part of a petrol engine apart from the crankshaft and the generator. Attach a big battery to the generator and run it backwards as a motor, driving the prop shaft(s).
We might need to duct some more air over the generator, maybe 😉
There you go. Will it work? Over to you Товарищи!
