  • Electric SuperCar

    Hello all, I am new to the forum. I am just starting on a K1 attack kit car build. I have started the assembly a few months ago. My plan is to have a Tesla drive train. I will definitely reach out to the forum for advice along the way. I am also documenting in YouTube. Feel free to follow along.

    I will need all the help I can get.

    I have a ways to go.
    Front suspension, front rotors and brakes are done.
    I have done most of the 12V electrical. With this being an electric car, I have a great deal of electrical left to do.

    Just watched a few of your videos there now, it looks like an interesting but challenging build.

    Is there any reason you are going for a Tesla drive train as opposed to something like a system from YASA?

    Some motor companies offer modular designs which may be more customisable to the chassis/ performance requirements one would desire.

      I researched a lot of different ways to go. Seems like the possibilities are endless. This is the path I landed on. I did like the power to weight ratio.

        welcome to the forums mate,

        I suspect we'll be seeing mroe people starting electric or hybrid projects.
        I stripped my car out so much it now has 49/49 weight distribution.

          Hi,
          interesting build. Strange suspension geometry.

          Tesla drive trains aint cheap, are you planning to run on custom or Tesla software?

                Wow thats different. Definitely going to be following this one. I think this either belongs in members rides or members builds MHR1294

                    Not sure how this forum works, but it will not let me post anywhere except introductions. I tried again today to post elsewhere, still no luck

                      I'm still having issues with the build threads so i'll move it to the member's rides threads

                      You should be able to post anywhere except build threads.

                            I hate brake lines, but I'm good at making them. Fronts always feel harder to make than rears for some reason. Maybe it's the bends around the chassis legs etc that put me off.
