9” Advanced DC FB-4001 electric motor
The electric motor is mounted to the stock Miata 5-speed transmission through a custom CNC plate and adapter made by ElectroAuto.
400 Amp Curtis controller
600 watt custom DC-DC 120-12v to run the 12v systems.
120v 183Ah pack comprised of 15x8volt lead acid batteries US8VGHC-XC from USBattery. Pack is only ~3years old. Cycled maybe 10 times. Individual voltmeters on each battery.
100 watt solar panel with charge controller is connected to the 12v system just to amaze onlookers.
All 120v wiring is channeled through flexible waterproof conduit.
Springs upgraded by FlyinMiata to maintain original height. Shocks upgraded to adjustable Konis.
Vacuum pump to maintain power brakes.
Macho horn to warn SUV drivers. :)
500amp breaker within reach of driver
500Amp fuse under the hood.
1,200watt charger onboard, connects to any household plug.
The DMV title and registration show that it is an electric car, so no smog check is ever needed.
I built it because love building things. I’ve only put around 200 miles on it though. So I need the garage space for my next project.
