Great thread, thanks for all the updates. First thing I look for during my morning coffee break.
I'm glad you're enjoying the conversion and I apologise for the lack of updates, I'm busy moving house :cry:

A conversion kit for the Bay Window Bus will be available later in the year... many of the parts will be useful on a Split Bus 8)

Finally found some time to fit the CSF Drag Race Radiators. Next step is to add another panel to seal up the cooling air chamber 8)

The open source inverter controller tuning continues in preparation for a track day with Damien Maguire's BMW next week (here).

Yesterday we pushed the 'standard' version of the Large Tesla motor to 300kW traction and 125kW regen which is 110% of the power delivered in a Tesla Model S 8)

My bet that we can hit 800HP in the 'performance' version of the Large Tesla motor is looking good :D
