Look how clean this was before we cluttered it full of stuff! Ended up using a different relay board (this one defaulted to relays on at boot, and wasn’t opto-isolated)
Ended up not using some of these components but here was the first draft of things.
Only about half finished, but we now have room to work on the raver trap again!
Life got in the way, ended up missing the Burn in 2013 – buying a house and building a huge new shop.
Tested the motor controller with our janky temporary steering/throttle made from old stereo knobs. Throttle made more fun by the fact that full left isn’t stop, it’s full reverse : P
Probably shouldn’tve ordered everything right before leaving to Florida for a week!
Planning out the mods to the frame to accomodate the bigger wheels and bigger batteries.
We left it quarantined in the shop just in case.
Here’s the armchair that we’ll be using, gotta raise it up enough that feet won’t be touching the ground. Super comfy, seems like it’ll hold up to playa. Free from back alley near commercial drive : )
This is the donor electric mobility scooter frame that we’ll be using for the project. 24V, two electric motors – and it seems to draw about 60A on each if you tie it to the truck and do burnouts with someone standing on it.
We’ll be upgrading the batteries, putting in a completely new controller, rebuilding the frame, etc.
