To disband with the gas guzzler twin turbo motor and turn the car into an on road, daily driving one of these ...
Well, not quite ... but the plans are for an electric powered street vehicle with comparative acceleration to a stock standard 300ZX.
Nooooo !!! ... ... ... I can hear all the Nissan sport car drivers crying already ... But it's too late now ... This car isn't going to know what hit it.
A little bit about myself ...
My name is John ... I'm 31 years old ... I live in Brisbane Australia ... I currently work for a freight forwarding company ... and i'm into any form of sustainable technology or living. Whether it be electric cars to wind turbines, growing your own vegetables to mud brick houses ... chances are I've researched it in depth.
I believe electric cars (and high speed electric rail) are the future for transport. But i'm not prepared to wait for the government or the car manufacturers to offer their solution with an unknown pricetag.
The Chevrolet Volt ... Production Due 2010 ??? ... Release into Australia ??? ... Pricetag US40,000 ??? ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Volt
Motivation / Inspiration:
Came from a 3 month work assignment in Perth, with nothing but sight seeing and the hotel room internet as entertainment ... (Thanks Jamie) ...
Watching the documentary "Who Killed the Electric Car" and stumbling accross kiwiev.com
I have an IT (hardware and software) background ... I have limited knowledge when it comes to vehicle maintenance and no fabrication experience.
I'm fairly practical by nature ... I try my hand at home renovations and small domestic building projects. If I can see something assembled, I'll have a go at building it myself (although disassembly was my specialty when I was younger)
However, I understand the basics of electronics (I know how to read a wiring diagram and know how to use a set of jumper cables)
So how hard could it be ??? It's just like an overgrown remote control car ... Right ???
