Everyday Driver

Here is a current photo of the 'Cat where it's perched during the day. Most of the time it's driven back and forth between the shop and home unless it's having battery issues. Using batteries that have been laying in wait for several years has been slightly challenging, but The Mechanic is working out the kinks. It gets a lot of reaction out in the world, people love it, and we have our logo and business info on the back now. This is something we wanted to do with the car, using it to promote our business here in town and it's getting the attention we expected. The signage we have on the back and side windows was done by our sign-guy, Jim, through a barter. He's excellent, having been making signs locally for 50 years. That's been a very good association for us.

Royce is in what he calls "Stage 2" as far as the battery packs are concerned. He is adding modules to step-up the voltage to it's final 200 volt resting place. He still needs to finish the transmission mods for racing and he still needs to upgrade the rear diff. He has the parts but the shop has been super busy. It's just a matter of getting to it. Our buddy Bob (with the electric TVR) is here most days doing this and that to his car and ready to get both cars on the track, but he is being patient.

Final report: We should have our Manzanita PFC-50 battery charger installed by next Saturday!

Not bad for Electro-junk, eh??
