The next video in this classic New Zealand Electric Car Conversion has arrived!

My Potentiometer Throttle Box has arrived from America! It was a birthday present from my mum - sure beats socks & undies!

This "Pot Box" as it's known, is like a light dimmer switch. The accelerator cable is attached to it and when you press the gas pedal, the lever moves, adjusting the amount of power the motor is to receive.

I also learnt that in New Zealand you require an additional spring connected to the outside of the pot-box for safety in case the main spring fails.
It made me wonder if other countries have this same extra spring requirement?
