In an all electric maybe, but I was thinking about using it for deceleration when using the diesel too. So I could grab all that energy that would've gone to the brakes and recharge the batteries with it. Do you have any idea what the efficiency of a seperately excited DC motor is?

reconfigure an alternator for high voltage output to recharge at 36-48 volts and figure on recharging lead bats right after use - nicads not so often but they have a greater charge/discharge energy loss.
