    Is it possible to swap a Tesla Model S 60 kW battery to a 85 kW ? Will Tesla help with updating firmware? Or is the 60kW a 60 kW forever?

    I wonder if just maybe, Tesla’s policy on repairing their cars is a way to ensure that more cars get wrote off. Therefore putting their technology into the hands of tinkerers like yourself and the other shops and startups now doing ev conversions with used salvage parts. I mean probably not, but maybe.

    frankly, it's so sad that the car looks nice till you realize it's made out of wood. Are you trying to re-create Dr. who? I'm sure I'm not the only one that remembers Dr. who in the 1970s the season or so, where he didn't have his little blue box. He took a early model T Ford and made it into a rocket car. Car looks completely normal. But whenever you hit the gas, it would leave to flaming trails behind it. Like the Dorian in back to the future. In fact, it's where they got the gag about the burning tire tracks from back to the future. From what I remember it was supposedly modified with a electric super engine was part of the story. Frankly, I can't remember it was long time ago. Car looked like this and was really fast. They used to make jokes in various episodes about somebody tooling around in a car that old. And all of a sudden it would disappear in a flame trail. I'm guessing you didn't change the engine and merely just change the batteries. In all fairness, if you're going to actually do something with that you're going to have to modify and change a lot of things, not just the steering wheel. Unfortunately, from the end of the video. If that thing caught fire. It would be completely gone in under 30 seconds. . In the late 1800s there was a series of electric taxis in New York. I think they made 20. They even had a charging station. They were called Electrabats or something like that. And looks somewhat similar to this vehicle. They didn't catch on because they were significantly more money than their gas running equivalent. Andrey Ford also made a couple of electric cars but as I understand it never made any that were public sale.

    @Rich Rebuilds third Dr. I believe you're correct. Given I'm 40 and I watch those episodes when I was around 13. They were the ones when he was in England with unit . Storyline was. They confiscated his little blue box and wouldn't let him have it back. At one point he had a however car. Mostly though we use that little modified antique car that everybody made fun of till they got in the thing . Ironically, the bit in back to the future with the flaming tire marks is a little Easter egg to Dr. who. If I remember correctly they always filmed scenes with the car on dirt roads. It never actually went that fast. It was a and practical fx gag. But it's the first thing I thought of when I seen that little electric Parade car. Unfortunately, I'm guessing there's not much left of it. If it had any kind of a fire. Given that car was made out of what it was made out of it blows my mind that Disney had stones to use it in a parade. They could never made the thing more unsafe. If they soaked it in gasoline. Basically, the thing was a giant fire risk right from the very first day it was used. That's why it just blew my mind realizing the whole thing was made out of. Not only made of wood but a very combustible form of wood at that at that. Remember during the parade. At some point this thing simulated breaking down which included flames and sparks coming out of the front. I figure the thing would've been made out of some sort of metal usually amusement park units like this are made with a metal frame and fiberglass body panels. I'm surprised Disney never had a major lawsuit occur because of something like this and an employee getting injured. Given what that fellow did with the wheelchair. I still say putting a Tesla motor and battery pack on that style of wheelchair could be interesting and would probably make super Dave Osbourne smile. Assuming he's still alive. That is he's probably deceased. Come to think of it. I can't member the name of the actor who played super Dave to look him up.
