Jason Hughes' all-electric vehicles project moves forward with his two Tesla Model S drive units.
The motors have now become operational and will combined with a couple first generation Chevrolet Volt battery packs.
"Tesla Model S - Motor and rear clip working in workshop
Unedited, single take, just got this stuff hooked up 5 minutes before filming. Hooked my latest custom control board to the motor, let it do it's initial thing, and presto. Works perfectly. :)
Good thing I've got some safety coded into the controller so that it won't go from D to R at high speeds... that would have been bad... as in, the motor probably would have flipped. haha.
Have to charge my Volt battery back up now, though... too much messing around."
