In this video, we delve into how a DC motor works! For this project, we used a series-wound DC motor originally salvaged from an electric forklift. For some great ideas on different vehicles converted to electric, check out the listing at the EV Album! http://www.evalbum.com
This video is one segment of an instructional video I created in 2010 from a home-built electric car I made in 2008. Of course, battery and motor technology has advanced quickly since then, and affordable, commercially-built, Electric Vehicles are now a reality.
This video series covers ONE low-tech and simple way of converting a car to electric. Many of these same ideas and techniques still apply to go-karts, motorcycles, boats, and lots of other projects. We hope that you enjoy watching these videos and learn a little something from them.
Yes, we know there's a spider in the video. People love to comment as though they are the only one who has ever seen the spider. You can now follow the spider on Twitter. https://twitter.com/spidermotor
