Check the photo! The adaptor plate between the electric forklift motor and the VW trans-axle for the rear bus is complete! Now the shaft is being constructed along with a 2 gear only transmission (1st and 2nd) for on-playa use.
Pretty awesome. Russ (of Russ Repair) has been helping with this component of the project. Thanks dad!
Hopefully the electric drive will be complete in time for us to be able to use it on-playa. Still seeking some large solenoids and whatnot for the 36 or 48V system.
