How do I do an electric vehicle conversion without using the transmission?

Friday, December 28th, 2012

Question by Alex K: How do I do an electric vehicle conversion without using the transmission?
I would like to convert my 99 Toyota Tacoma 2wd to battery electric.

Every conversion kit that I’ve come across involves bolting an electric motor to the existing transmission. I would like to remove the transmission and mount the electric motor directly to the drive train.

I’ve heard this can be done successfully but there is little information available. Anyone have any experience or ideas on this?

Answer by Bertsta
I think gearboxes are often used to allow a greater speed range. Single speed vehicles aren’t quick enough for the road (eg. fork lift truck). To keep up a good speed you will have to flog it and the range will suffer as a result.

But there’s no technical reason why you need a ‘box. Maybe have a look at a fork lift truck and see how it’s done, and maybe “borrow” the parts you need while you’re there 😉

02.27.11 HOW TO program engines using Digitrax & a layout Update Oh and new STARS

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Well I have finally made and edited a new video! This is mainly a layout update video and how to program an engine on my Digitrax system. Plus as I promised to the newest haters I am turning them into Stars by calling them out by name and all. That is only about 40 seconds long though. That is not the objective of this video, it is the layout. I LOVE THIS DAMN HOBBY!!!

Do you need special acrylic paints when using a Badger Double Action Airbrush?

Monday, July 9th, 2012

Question by Jacob: Do you need special acrylic paints when using a Badger Double Action Airbrush?
Hello. Along with my interest in roller coasters I love HO Scale model trains. And when Kitbashing, I need to paint/weather my engines, cars & buildings. Now, I do not have an airbrush yet, but I am getting a Badger 150 Double Action airbrush kit, and I have learned that for model RR’ing acrylic paints work very well. But, I do not know if they will harm my airbrush. So I am asking you. Thank you in advance! :-{)

Best answer:

Answer by Robert S
Acrylic paints will NOT harm your airbrush. I use Tamiya Acrylics, as well as Testors Model Master Enamels and Flo-Quil Enamels.

Just test alittle with thinning the paint, and ALWAYS thoroughly clean your airbrush after work (see manufacturers directions).

I use 3 Badger 150’s and a air-gun… Personally, I prefer using enamels… but acrylics work just fine.

Why do people keep using off topic info from a user’s profile against them in an argument esp. when losing?

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

Question by : Why do people keep using off topic info from a user’s profile against them in an argument esp. when losing?
I notice that in arguments especially in forums such as this one and armchair general forums,whenever people are in an argument one side will begin to search at the other user.

Here is one example example here is one between user Antwoin Dodson and Sailor Saturn.

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AlgdqQaB75PUkcGR37z1mWQjzKIX;_ylv=3?qid=20110102111908AAv3tpq

‘Antoine Dodsn:Jesus Christ.
Yes, list three bad missions and assume they fail at the rest of them. Notice how your only evidence is over 40 years old? Isn’t that something to think about.
Sailor Saturn:These are just 3 examples. I could post more but thats not the point of this question.What Iam asking is why Special forces don’t perform well in missions that conventional infantry such as USMC,Army Airborne, and even regular army infantry could do with such excellent performance such as large scale amphibious assaults or defending static positions!

Antoine Dodson then starts looking at Sailor Saturn’s user profile and begins using off topic info that had nothing to do with the thread against Sailor Saturn.

Antoine Dodson:Your profile explains everything. Male who loves Sailor Moon. I would love to see you in the military.

Edit:

Oh wait, you READ it. So you read about three failed missions and come on here saying they perform poorly. Go back to jerking it to Dragon Ball Z and sailor moon.

Edit:

Oh go ahead and copy and paste all your evidence kiddo. All you are doing is showing you are just an anime know it all who thinks he is so smart and that the US SOF/SF are failures. When was the last time you performed in combat?

PS: Khe Sanh was a clusterfuvk. No amount of training would have prevented it or those deaths. You are listing battles that were brutal. Stop insinuating that the SOF/SF can’t do their job.

Here is another example between Gobar G and 2th 4rd.Here is what happened.

Gobar G-I notice that in martial arts universally is the importance of the meaning of discipline and training oneself up to the point Discipline is Permanently Second Nature to you and that you are a very well disciplined person..And I also notice this applies to ALL MARTIAL ARTS REGARDLESS of origins be it French,Brazilian,Japanese,Russian and Korean and regardless of style be it Sambo,Savate,Kung Fu,or Eskrima.

So what is the meaning of Discipline in martial arts?What is its purpose in martial arts?Why do all martial arts in the world EMPHASIZE DISCIPLINE FIRST ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE?

2th4rd all of a sudden enters the thread and bashing Gobar G with off topic things.

You’re in a university??? I thought you’re graduating from high school soon??? I believe you lost that fight had it ever really happened…. I also believe you will never get into the 82nd not only because of your lack of discipline, integrity, honor, and initiative…. but the FACT that you retired from the Corps. and the Army!!! Whatever your endeavors are, YOU WILL FAIL!!!

O scale, MTH and Lionel Train Layout, using Woodland Scenics

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

Hello! Welcome to my video of my Christmas Trains set up for 2010. I started in October of 2010 and was finished by early December. This isn’t a permanent layout as it was built, after all, in my living room. All the engines are MTH running on DCS, powered by one half of a Z4000 transformer. The subway is running conventionally on the other half of the transformer. All of the rocks were cast from Woodland Scenics molds using Hydrocal and colored with watered down WS Acrylic paints. I made this video so my relatives could see just how nuts I am. Hi Glen, Congrats on getting married. One tip though, you better keep your trains in the basement if you want to keep your wife..lol Hi Mom, I hope you’re able to play this while down in Florida. If you can’t get it to play, just flag down some 5 yr old kid, he’ll get you going. Lou, I expect to be playing golf with you in the spring. Well, enjoy….
