EVTV Friday Show - July 27, 2012

This week:

- Alan Kirsten's Audi TT Project
- Damien Maguire tests the CA180FI
- 2008 Cadillac Escalade EXT Electric - first roll.
   and more ...

Alan Kirsten's Audi TT Project; He does not like to pay for shipping so he came to pick up his cells :-)

Damien Maguire's crazy experiments with the CA180FI !! Don't try this at home !!

He is simply short circuiting the CA1180FI and it puts a tremendous amount of current (up to 1800 Amps if I recall)

And Jack is showing us the last steps on the Escalade

A software reading the CAN bus gives a simple read out of all the sensors

Another one reads the ECU EPROM:
Thanks to this on Jack got all the error codes that were blocking him, deactivated them, and wrote the program back to the EPROM=> problem solved :-)

And now it is time to test drive the converted Escalade around the block !

No front, no hood

Jack is happy and grins (inside)

And some news from EV West, co-founded by Matt Hauber a former intern at EVTV (the live cable cutter). They converted a 1995 BMW M3 to Electric drive with two Warp 11HV motors and EVnetics Shiva controller, and the result is scary !! The Test drive video and more here
