If asuming you use the 100a at 48v and not using any lose due to converting that equals 4800w. That converys to 6.4hp. Average v belt output is less than 4.5hp.

Hi Jaffa. Good to see V2 and it looks good. I know with the offroaders a rear engine works well so I can't see why it wouldn't work in V2. With the V8 the hilux diffs mightn't be strong enough with the extra traction on the rear wheels because of the extra weight. Looking forward to the finished pr...
