    Must say it’s a great idea! Especially nowadays as on the road their better just for a cruise. Sold my auto will miss it though just such a nice car to drive.
    Well understand the instant power those batteries may deliver. Will watch this with interest.

    spud you Boag!
    So does this mean you will plan to have it engineered and registered?
    That will be interesting to follow the process.
    I suppose passing emissions will be a breeze!

    I’ve already got one blue Capri on club reg - I figure I’ll just get the most joy out of one set of plates - no sense in wasting resources to get another set made

    Don’t be deceived- that little lost looking motor is going to rip the poor old 185’s to shreds

    No Regen for this one.
    God I hope it goes better than a prius😥
    If not I’ll bolt another warp 9 in front of the existing one🙃

    I'm curious why you're not going direct drive Spud (added weight and losses through the gearbox and all).

    I brought all of the gear for basically nothing - the gearbox had already been coupled to the motor
    So the path of least resistance with this one. After I reg it I may refine - see how it goes
