Electric cars are incredible even if they tend to be loaded down with bullshit. It's going to be a golden age for car enthusiasm when they get cheap enough for people to start hacking apart the powertrains and putting them elsewhere.

Specifically talking about custom builds here, I think electric powertrains will make AWD builds much easier, since you can literally just have two motors (one for each axle) rather than needing a center differential/driveshafts running the length of the car. This could make building AWD buggies/crawlers/race cars much easier.

Pic related is something I just found out about while looking for a file image. It's an AWD EV platform (batteries are in that tube thing) that is planned to be sold specifically for building custom electric vehicles.

The real redpill is when you realize how easy it would be to make an AWD hybrid from an FF cuckbox.
>>
>>21655624
You can't just throw a motor in a FWD shitbox and make it AWD... If you use a conventional AWD drivetrain, a transverse engine and tranny in the rear or a motor it's going to require the same amount of fabrication. Batteries are heavy and there's only so many places you can put them in a conventional ICE car.
>>
>>21655304

Unless those are two little itty bitty motors on the rear hubs that thing is fwd.

And then I don't know why any manufacturer would make a FWD electric car seeing as the only two benefits of ICE fwd are gone.

Well we're not talking about using a conventional drivetrain (I know some people will hook up an electric motor directly to the transmission instead), we're talking about using two separate motors. While it would obviously take fabrication, it wouldn't be as hard as using a conventional AWD powertrain. And this is assuming you're doing a conversion. If you're doing a ground-up tube frame build like >>21655314 then you have way more liberties.
>>21655754
No, it's AWD. The motor is on the very front. There's another on the back. Pic related is another angle.

You're doing it right now. A lot of people are very upset about it, but the difference is jewish people are overrepresented in western media(due to early TV/film being considered a scummy medium fit only for foreign types), so they get to complain more.

Things I have learned /o/ edition

- If you just bought a used car with over 150,000 miles, first thing replace the timing belt

- Silicone Wiper Blades are worth it

- LED headlights are worth it

- Iridium spark plugs are good for well over 100,000 miles

- Steel wheels 15" if you live in a pothole state

- Don't cheap out on tires, but don't blow your whole wad on Le Michelin Supreme Meme tires

- Use synthetic 0w-whatever the manual says, change every 6 months, or 7500 miles

Own filters are designed with foreknowledge of the engines behavior, and the engines are designed with foreknowledge of the filter. I don't know what 'improvement' you hope to get with a different filter.

and I definitely don't know why you think that that using a different spark plug will help you in a cramped engine bay. The gap is the distance between the electrode and the anode on the end of the plug. As for my experience, I've fabbed tools that enabled my shop to perform an oil feed pipe inspect/replace campaign without dropping the entire drivetrain in place. Is that good enough for you? Warranty time is 8.4, we can do them in about two now.

>>21654553

Sometimes... But what do you hope to accomplish with a 'better filter'. Just do your oil changes on time and you're fine.

they're fine, unless you're hooning or hauling. i've pulled many, many, many blown out tires off of wheels, and your expensive tires are just as likely to fuck off as the cheapest ones, in the US.

are you really going to stand there and tell us that you get goodyears at sneeds tire shop @ 10/32nds and that walmart goodyears come at 5/32nds? because i was actually a service manager at a walmart TLE a long time ago. i've handled thousands and thousands of tires in stock and ordering.
