    Dala's Leaf buildthread (2015 Nissan Leaf)

    So I thought I'd write a status update on this LEAF. In short, it's been running without any issues whatsoever. This vehicle just ticked in at 55,000km , which is over 30k'km fault free driving after the 40kWh pack was installed. I have not done anything to this car except add windshield...

    Dala's EVNX buildthread (1991 Nissan NX)

    So now my focus has shifted towards getting the suspension sorted: And also getting the battery mounted: Videos on both these topics incoming soon!

    So here it is. This is the most effort the videos have taken so far, I had massive problems with the axle carrier bracket. So glad this is finished now and I can focus on the battery :D

    Still haven't finished the video, we are going to try and fit all fabrication needed to make the motor sit permanently in the engine bay. Another sneak peak on the axle carrier bracket fabrication progress:

    The adapter plate & clutch adapter is now aligned and permanently attached to each other. Feels good having this crucial step completed! Check out how we managed with the adapter plate using only hand tools!

    Most of the adapter plate is now complete, check out how I managed with only hand tools :D

    Last weekend I got the pedal setup figured out, here's a video on how hard it was to fit the Volkswagen Touran drive-by-wire into the car :)

    So the motor that I ordered from Norway is finally here. In this short video, I proceed with tearing it down so that I can start to measure if it will be even possible to mate it with the SR6speed gearbox. Enjoy!

    I just put out a video that goes into detail how Nissan protects their CAN communication from corruption/tampering. Very useful info for anyone doing Leaf reverse-engineering or any projects where Leaf parts are transplanted into new use!

    Happy new year! I'm starting 2021 by installing a new EVSE into my workshop. I ran 6mm^2 cabling to the EVSE, but my main fuse is 3x25A, so I am limiting the EVSE to 3x16A (11kW). If I ever bump up my main fuses to 35A, I can simply set the EVSE to 22kW!

    Parts are being purchased! In this episode I show what my usual approach is when it comes to finding salvage yard bits and pieces!

    Nissan Leaf/Renault battery replacement

    Umm, no offense but if you can't say the difference between LMO and LiFePo4 you shouldn't be building a custom battery. I'm gonna explain why this is a baaad idea LMO (2011-2013) ZE0 Nissan Leaf, 3.7V nominal, 4.08V fully charged, 3.50V empty, flat discharge curve that is leaning towards high...

    Dala's Leaf buildthread (2015 Nissan Leaf)

    So I made a video recently that ties into the prices on the salvage Nissan Leaf battery market, and how much I suck at managing a business. Anyone curios about what it truly costs to upgrade an EV should watch this.

    Nissan Leaf/Renault battery replacement

    The issue with custom battery builds, 18650s, LG cells, etc. Is that the original BMS is not able to handle these chemistries. The charging curves/temperature limits, internal resistance measurments, capacity algoritms etc. all will be broken if you install some other chemistry than the original...

    Dala's Leaf buildthread (2015 Nissan Leaf)

    So I think this takes the record for the most boring youtube video ever released. 52minutes of me trying to figure out some CAN-data reverse engineering. Please do not watch this, you will go insane from the boredom. Or do watch it, I'm not the police :)
