Summer Sweat

Not much happened today except yard work and installing the window air conditioners. It was 95 F and humid and I did not like it one bit!

So after losing a few gallons water, I decided that I should make a specifications book of my EV. A few people have shown interest in my design so I am making a few pages of my research relevant to my Civic, range estimations, coupling designs, controller desgins, explanations of component choices, component lists and pricing.

I have been toying with the idea of a DIY Electric Car magazine and have been posting my thoughts on the DIY Electric Car forums and I think I will make a demo magazine using the research I have done and my own conversion. I just need to get some really good pictures of my car and components so maybe tomorrow I can set some decent pics up and write a bunch of stuff. I already have 4 or so pages of written research so it shouldn't be too hard to come up with a 20-30 or so page magazine. Like a small magazine version of my blog to hand out to curious folks.

I am not using a CVT transmission, but a normal 4 speed electronically controlled automatic transmission.
