It has been a while since I posted on this forum. I still own and love my Zs. But I have been distracted on other projects.
I have built the first electric motorkhana / khanacross car in Australia. It has been competing for 12 months now and is just starting to realise it's full potential.
The chassis is home made from the ground up. most of the mechanicals are mostly from a Nissan Pulsar (small front wheel drive hatch).
The car is front wheel drive because they have a slight advantage over rear wheel drive in this form of motorsport.
The motor is an Advanced DC 9 inch. This type of motor is usually used for converting a 1200KG road car. So in my 500kg car it goes quite nicely.
The controller is a Zeva 1000amp unit (although so far I have only tested it to 800amps)
So far the peak power I have seen has been 67KW. But its the torque that is the real advantage of these motors with around 440nm from 0 revs.
The batteries are 170v lithium Ion from a Chevy Volt. The total capacity is 7KWH and it lasts a full day of racing for me.
I'll post some pics and videos in a minute.
