Default FiskerPhillys project Tesla powered Karma

Hey folks as promised we have begun cutting into our Karma to power it with a modded p85 rear drive unit. While i wont have time to update much here on the forum you are welcome to follow it on Facebook. My apologies to those who arent on FB but its the easiest way for me to update.

Are you putting two telsa motor in the rear? what do you expect for torque on set up ? what is your estimate for acceleration with the current weight? are you also swapping out the batteries and inverted to a 6.6 ?

I think that's a single motor. The other enclosure is the integrated inverter, which is why the existing inverters are no longer needed and can be removed.

Still plugging along. Waiting on the custom made conversion axle shafts. Being heat treated to handle the Tesla torque. Should have a bench mock up of the drivetrain soon
