    Well Done, I am thinking of building a hot rod project and going down the EV route, been researching different motors etc even been looking at wheel motors for the AWD aspect, want it fast/Quick, have not told guys at work what I am going with for drive options as they are the V8 crowd and saying fit a blower on top.


    Years ago I had a series 2 soft top and ended up running synthetic oil in gearbox and diffs (was free from work) this made a huge difference in the noise from gears.
    disco seriesII mods so far:-bullbar,hyd winch,
    detriot locker,lsd front,C.D.L kit,chipped and bigger intercooler,2" lift,rock sliders, lsd in transfer case, modified auto trans.

    Well thanks Stevo, I'm running synthetic 70w75 GL4 in the Gearbox , TC and both diffs . Gearbox sure leaks a lot more out the selector seals (if you can call them seals) . The diffs are practically silent but the gearbox is still noisy. Im thinking of putting some dynamat under the floor.

    If your building a Hotrod I think wheel motors are a long way off , for pure kick ass torque DC Motors are to biggest bang for the buck,

    I guess you've seen Zombie 222



    And Chev e-copo


    As with anything EV the batteries are still the most expensive part . But if need be you can justify the expense by setting up the battery pack in such a way that you could use the car as a power wall for your house.

    That is a good idea because once I move back to brissy was looking into mounting more panels to power a battery and if labour gets in will take on any rebates they might put up
