Yup, I get it. Speaking of banjos, I'm trying to make one (as in banjo-bolt fitting). I think I finally figured out how to get oil pressure before turning the engine.
The only trouble is the thread is 3/8" X 28 (ever heard of it?) So I'm tinkerin'

http://www.forkenswift.com exists, but it mostly points to other places (like this thread). I don't think I'll work on fleshing that out until the car is further along. Let's say after the pack is properly installed on racks & cabled, and the controls are complete and mounted. And that would be some time in... September?

SW: You got me - never heard of it. Glad I'm not the only one tardy with the garage projects though!

Squeeeeal like a Curtis! (If you get that, well. Yep.)
I believe only the 1231C models made that squeal.

Unfortunately for Curtis, the model that squeals appears to have become a "brand identity" thing among hobbyists. (The golf cart controller we have is actually a Cursit, and it's quiet as a mouse. About as powerful too.)

how about posting a build log on that site similar to something like i did on my mantaproject.com site? It is easy to do, every day you work on the car take some pics of your progress and dump them in a dir on the webserver and update the index.html to point to the new page and later on when you get time you can add text and a description of the pictures.

Works pretty good for me that way since I get lazy sometimes doing my updates and I can just dump the pictures into the dirs and fix up the html as I get around to it. The program that makes the image map thumbnails I use on that site is also free and takes like 5 seconds to use generating the basic html page for you that you can edit later as you feel like it.

Well, this thread is my build log

I see what you mean though. Cool site - I love the factoid about "Shaky Jake". Classic.

The plan is to eventually copy bits of this thread to make the "conversion diary" part of forkenswift.com and point back here if people want to talk about it/comment.

(Matt, you are backing up the server right?)

Just noticed the two YouTube vids of the motor power-ups have been viewed over 5000 times. 5314 to be exact. Amazing.
