    About buying an EV project car. Most people finance their cars. Unless you have a substantial surplus in your bank account, few DIY people are going to be able to get a bank to finance a EV. Especially one that is homebuilt and has limited appeal and resale value.

    Long wire on shunt is going to drop voltage..and hence the current flow value is going to be incorrect. Would recommend RS485 with modbus or canbus protocol..

    I think another term for the DC Shunt is a Current Transformer. Used to take a proportional sample of a high current, so only a smaller safer current is used for the meter.

    Dude, not sure of your background but watch your wire gauges as 400A fuse should be having a substantial amount of copper conductor in series to not create an expensive “toaster”. Using 2nd hand wiring is an option only if you understand what you are doing. The previous owner/hobbyist might not have crimped the lugs correctly, or drilled out the hole to fit a bolt and with that you could create a point of failure that results in destroying the connected part or your EV. Also ensure all wiring is correctly installed/routed and with no mechanical strain to your connections as the vibrations will again lead to failure. Other than that your project looks pretty cool....

    I would have put the fuse in directly at the output of the battery pack so that there is protection in case the cables get damaged

    Richard use to watch ... I am getting over your short...bit of Temper . Even if understandable. The betrayal not of Tesla goals. As much as the planet itself and all creatures on it..... Your a young man still and have children. Witch hurts that you would turn your back .. on their future It Appeared you knew about globalization by corporate America that despite your growing up around those maintaining the my flag is bigger then your flag type. You shared the view that globe warming Was real. As real the saving the planet is also a real deal NEEDING electric cars trucks and their like and lots less trees burning-less burning of everything. Rick. You need income from ALthers and you were on your way till you got simple if you get my meaning. Rejoin the save the PLANET crowd ... And push that like a Christian don't be Christian though that's hard in 🇺🇸 just push the green sustainable cause ... Tesla is a means if not the way. . Bet 😊 hope jfreaks not see. this be very short fill in blanks

    Bro, those are called relays @14:15. "A relay is an electrically operated switch. It consists of a set of input terminals for a single or multiple control signals, and a set of operating contact terminals. The switch may have any number of contacts in multiple contact forms, such as make contacts, break contacts, or combinations thereof".

    It may roll, but the car won't work very well is my guess. I have driven cars with a bad clutch. You have to put the car in first gear and then start it. Then, to switch from first to second, you have to feather the gas peddle to get it to go into second. Gears will grind. So how is this going to work? You put the car into first gear, then engage the motor so now your rolling, and then, grind gears to get it to go into second and third. Or, put it into fourth and then engage the motor having a really slow start and then grind it into fifth. What kind of a load would doing such a thing put on the electric motor? An amp draw like that on an electric motor might burn it up. I bet you don't even have the motor correctly connected to the transmission. The moving parts of the motor have to have a specific tolerance to the moving parts of the transmission and there is no way you performed such a thing with a piece of card board as a visual perception. Machined work has to be precise. SO what now.... we save a tree with using your displate,com, exploit a woman or women, experiment with high voltage/amperage electrical circuits, and do it all at the same time. Ridiculous. Absurd. Good luck and God bless us all.
