Janky testing

raver trap - 03

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

Got the armchair!

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 : )

The donor scooter

Electric wheelchair

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.
