    New here, EVcaddy

    I have two Eldorados... an 02 and a 96. I convert cars to electric power as my trade, and am planning to convert one of these in the very near future. A little more power, a little quieter, a little bit faster, and a lot cheaper at the pump...

    I demand videos! I'd love to see where you found space for batteries. Did you put one motor at each wheel?

    DETAILS!

    AKA MPC, instead of MPG it's Miles Per Charge. Ha ha, get it?

    "Drink any one?"

    Just like what everyone said above, EVCaddy. Please post your project for all if us to see and learn.

    Stephen Foster wrote a song about this endeavor - it was titled "Beautiful Dreamer".

    I absolutely LOVE the "faster, cheap, power" !!! "Look, Mom - It's an Eldoradius !"

    I suppose there is a dedicated 30A locking prong outlet in your garage, and that you have an "in" with your local electric power provider ??? ....and where do you plug it in at the local supermarket or Burger Doodle ?

    Optima Battery is gonna love you.............. or these people.............. http://www.extremetech.com/computing...0-times-faster
