    EV Technical Reference Sources

    Non-Electric, but Interesting

    EV Books

    • Convert It: by Mike Brown. An excellent "dirty hands turning the wrenches" kind of guide to building and maintaing a reliable electric car. 

    • Build Your Own Electric Vehicle: By Bob Bryant. Lots of technical information, including details on how all the components actually work.

    • The New Electric Vehicles: By Michael Hackleman. Wonderful and inspirational pictures, with great details on specific conversions and custom EVs, including solar cars, boats and even airplanes.

    • The Complete Book of Electric Vehicles: by Sheldon R. Schacket. A little bit dated, but an excellent history of electric vehicles up to 1980. Includes an interesting look at several older conversions.

    • How to Convert to an Electric Car: by Ted Lucas. This is an older book, now out of print, which details a Renault Caravelle conversion, using a surplus generator as a drive motor. Included is information on building an SCR type controller, and a 72 volt battery charger. It is a good look at what EV conversions used to be like.

THE BLUE BIRDS OF HAPPINESS

 

 

   

 

The UK Team Speedace is limbering up for their first ever run from John O'Groats to Lands End in 2015. Provisionally, it is hoped that this event will take place on Wednesday the 17th of June. Progress with the team vehicle is on target. The team is looking for partners to share the financial risks of such a project. If you or your company has a long term green agenda and might benefit from an association with our Team, please contact either Chris or Terry to learn more of the potential  benefits.
