Leaf Motor working on the Bench

Tue Jul 07, 2020 12:47 pm

Hi guys and gals,

I am currently converting my already converted EV RX8 to Leaf tech... I have got the motor and original inverter working without needing to buy any external addons. Well except an Arduino to send can commands.

Hopefully will release an easy to use code base so anyone wanting to use Leaf tech in their EV's can do so...

Interesting. Prior to LEAF my daily driver was an RX8. Like you, I wanted a true rotary :lol:
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Lol, hopefully this is gonna be good fun to drive - I am leaving the gearbox in, first and second gears should be pretty nippy as they are higher ratios than the Leaf is as standard. Third will probably be the go to gear for efficiency and overall driveability.
