New Saturday workshop helper

New Saturday workshop helper
City EL EV

Gilles and I met at Altwheels festival in Boston two years ago. He recently got himself a City EL electric vehicle and finally got through all the red tape to put it on the road in Massachusetts.He lives only about 15 miles away, so he hauled his EV over for today's Saturday workshop.
We took it for a few spins up and down the road, measured the current draw (90A max).
Not much power, since it is basically a 36V golf cart with a sealed cabin. We discussed the options for giving it a bit more pep.
A nice day with a new toy to check out, and a mechanical engineer joins the Saturday crew.
