In the latest episode of Edd China’s Workshop Diaries he keeps working on one of his favorite projects, the electric ice cream truck, or van as those weirdos over there call it. But there’s more. One thing I really like about this project is the fact that he’s connecting the original gearbox, or transmission, to the electric motor. I’ve been doing some research lately and don’t quite understand the thought process behind using no transmission behind an electric motor, and instead running it direct drive at very high rpm while going down the highway. But that is a discussion for another day. Oh and did I mention that Edd’s electric ice cream van is going for a top speed record? Yeah.
In this episode Edd works on the adapters to connect said electric motor to the gearbox and then has a talk about some cool cars, his thoughts on them, and more.
