Very smooth conversion. Actual work hours: 240 Actual wait for parts hours: 2,040 Simulations estimate 95 mile capacity at 55 mph but the car doesn't want to drive conservatively. Driver has lead foot. Extremely nice acceleration - not yet timed. Beautiful linear torque curve -(straight as an arrow), smooth as glass. Motor, Inverter and Bosch potentiometer distributed by Metric Mind Engineering www.metricmind.com Very competent, knowledgeable people. Always timely and helpful. All other parts from TS Motors (Innevations). Batteries from Standard Battery of Las Vegas. Will do conversion with this system for others upon request.
