Wedge List / Re: [External] The future of our hobby
« Last post by Mark Elbers on December 08, 2018, 02:51:39 PM »
Dave,  my thoughts exactly.



Consider also that when the first hot rodders converted their rides back in

the 1080bs the EFI systems were considered a form of black magic similar to

the Wedge EFI of the day.



Today those systems are considered beginners projects. But try to find someone

who really knows their way around a 4bbl carb today.  Most shops have moved to

self tuning EFI.



Same applies to Electric.  Converting a Leaf system to another car today is

considered the domain of the wizard. In 20 years it will be an elementary

school project.



Other links for those that are interested:



These guys have a lot of DIY stuff:

This video in particular might get some juices flowing:

Also EV West:

Home built RX7 to EV conversion using a Leaf battery pack (not finished,  but

some good stuff and similar in weight and size to the wedge):

Home built electric motor cycle and car:

It was only a matter or time.B  Folks have been fitting crate Chevy motors in

30's vintage cars for years, this is just the next logical step.

It won't be cheap.B  Batteries are on a downward trend heading towards $100

per KWH and you need at least 50Kwh to get decent range.B  That's $5000 just

for the batteries.B  But, as this becomes more mainstream prices will fall.

Wedge List / Non Triumph car for sale

Listers - selling one of my cars, some on this list have this car in their

sigbs so figured there could be overlap of interests and ibd start here

before going to bring a trailer.... If you just live and breath triumphs then

apologies in advance...



2003 BMW M3 - 57k miles.  Silver over gray, every option for the model year.

Airbag and rod bearing recalls performed.  Last 12 months Ibve paid for all

of the preventive maintenance items for these cars ($7k of work) including:

near rear differential, BMW service II (google it if unfamiliar), Valve

adjustment, new water pump, new tires, new brakes, new headliner, new front

calipers.  Shipped the car up from FL last year, no rust or title issues.

Ibve got 6 cars and the wife finally gave me permission to buy my dream car,

but only if  I sell one of the existing ones (shebs very protective of her

last remaining garage spot).  Contact me off list if interested, otherwise

back to your normally scheduled programming....
