    Just for engine swap nuts..
    What are the dimensions for a Tesla motor? Just so we know we can measure up the engine bay and work from there..
    Thanks for your time.

    What level of energy storage management is implemented? Do you implement degradation models to limit damage to cells life expectancy. It gets really complex with a hybrid motorcycle power plant but the ICE being able to take load off the cells keeping them in their happy zone, likewise the single cylinder Mahle jet ignition, phased bishop valve to meet ultra lean flow with vibrations&moments eliminated with dual counter rotating crankshaft arrangement both rods to the piston, crank offset gives useful piston motion that lean burn rate can optimise peak cylinder pressure to. Artificial intelligence used for management,a multi-model. physics engine calculates virtual sensors from cylinder pressure sensor, bearing, crank train, piston group friction loss models. Keeping everything at peak efficiency. Formal orchestration language used to unclutter dashboard reduce cognitive load.

    Hey Sasha, awesome project but I hope your blue 3d printed brake master cylinder mount is just for mock up. I use 3d printers all the time but for something with that kind if force on it you need some machined aluminum. I like the Regen paddle idea though, might steal that one for my conversion!

    Does this guy know that independant traction control systems are available that are designed to give the car the most acceleration without much loss of grip? I've seen them used in time attack cars the most, but if your worried about feathering the throttle, these systems help launches and exiting corners. They don't bog the car like factory systems either.

    • Georgio Henderson
      Georgio Henderson Год назад

      Brian Jonas all it is are sensors monitoring wheel spin and telling the car what to do. If it has to adjust fueling and timing, i'm sure it can also control the input of an electric motor. An electric motor has a complex ECU, but it's not chemistry in which it has to monitor air, fuel, timing, and so forth to predict and control combustion, it's basically just controlling throttle input and electricity.

    The best place for regenerative braking is fully integrated with the brake pedal. It's ergonomically best and also best in terms of safety to not have aggressive lift throttle oversteer, especially for non-racing-trained street drivers.

    • Loanword Eggcorn
      Loanword Eggcorn Год назад

      Are you familiar with trailing throttle oversteer and why it's a bad thing, especially for untrained (non-racing) drivers? (If you're not a racer then the answer is probably "no" on both.) Regenerative braking on throttle lift potentially takes an existing problem and makes it much worse.

    • cros13
      cros13 Год назад

      I like it better blended with the accelerator... takes a little getting used to but feathering positive and negative torque with one foot becomes second nature... The one issue is it kind of biases you to ignore the brake and adds a split second to you hitting the brakes... you've got to register that the regen isn't going to be enough and consciously move your foot to the brake...

      You should stay in stereo but do it right.There's far too much separation, you should have it so there's less of a bias on left and right. Imagine you're standing where the camera is here in real life, you will hear slightly more on one side but the effect isn't very strong.

      The roadster was based off the Lotus Elise... with about 90% of the parts modified.... this project is based on the Elise's bigger brother the Evora... and there are advantages to that... for a project car more room to work and you need need more space/design weight to handle the high discharge PHEV cells.... A roadster isn't a head start on a project like this... it's more problems. Also... Tesla Roadsters aint cheap.

    the regen should not kick in totally with throttle up, instead it should be mixed with the brake pedal. Not sure of the ergonomics of having 2 brake controls. To mix the regen with the brake, the pedal should be active to give a smooth feedback between the regen torque and the brake pressure. a computer should decide for the driver so as soon as the braking need exceeds the regen potential power the brake kicks in instantly
