    Hey all, this is the NPC that owns the Delorean. We'll be documenting the build on Insta: casey_sp. Probably post some videos on here too. 69 really is my preferred temperature btw

    Floppy disk key ignition is such a nice touch 😍. Personally I'd go for a Zip Disk for durability sake, but floppy disk key is still pretty fuckin damn sexy.

    The delorean is one of the coolest projects yet, but here's the thing. Every single EV conversion so far is retro cars (old S5 not withstanding). I'm waiting for a real EV conversion of a 2012+ modern-looking car, either a sports car like a vette, genesis coupe, br-z, camaro, newer mustang, or an everyday car like an Altima/Civic/Jetta

    Nice fun project. One thing that might help: As far as I know not even the newest Nissan Leaf has battery conditioning(aka heating up to/cooling down to ideal temperature range) tech built into their battery packs. Tesla does, which is a surprise considering all the tech mistakes they have been inflicting in general, they got this one right... probably because Panasonic must have told them so :) anyways. If you want your battery to not age as quickly as your iphone you may want to consider installing a battery temperature management solution along those Leaf battery packs. Lithium batteries in cold winter temperatures do not like being charged or discharged especially not with high currents. It leads to precipitation on the electrode surfaces that would not get dissolved back into the electrolyte and will reduce battery performance drastically as it covers up anode/cathode surface over 4 years a Leaf battery in a cold climate country needs a bloody brand new battery because Nissan generally sucks pretty bad in engineering cars... I guess. Then there are the cooling issues. A high charge/discharge current will make the battery heat up and that has its own detrimental effects on the longevity if not managed... in extreme cases the electrolyte just fucking evaporates and your car turns into a bonfire... hope you got bacon... Thermal management of batteries is what keeps them working long and reliable. Try to maintain an environment around the batteries that keeps them around the temperature where the battery chemistry process can happen. Temperature spikes in a car drawing high currents kills batteries very quickly.
