The electric car has power!
After 2 days of slithering about underneath the car installing cables and cleaning the garage floor with my back, I've finally finished installing the main cables for the electric car!
The last 10 minutes were the most nerve-wracking as we fought the urge to turn the key and forced ourselves to check all our connections one by one.

In the end, we connected everything and heard the sound of that amazing Curtis 1231C Controller springing into life!
The car was jacked up at this point so We did a test spin of the motor, then a test spin of the car in gear (with the wheels off the ground). It all went GREAT!

The next video will show us taking the car onto the road for it's initial test drive!
Stay Tuned!
