ZERO EV R32 SKY­LINE

THE BOYS AT ZERO EV GET WIRED. NO, NOT THAT TYPE OF WIRED…

Fast Car - - Fast Projects -

We’ve made good progress this month and it won’t be long un­til we can flick the switches and get test­ing. But be­fore we do, we had to get to­tally wired…

The main thing to sort is the low volt­age sys­tem, this deals with all the 12v power and re­lays for ev­ery­thing. We opted for a plas­tic board and chock blocks for this, it’s not pretty but it is ef­fec­tive. It’s the quick­est and best way of test­ing be­cause we can eas­ily swap wires around. In a few months, when ev­ery­thing is fi­nalised, we will sol­der it all in place and mount the fuses and re­lays on some­thing a bit more aes­thet­i­cally pleas­ing and long-term.

While the low volt­age sys­tem re­quires more work, we have ac­tu­ally fin­ished the high volt­age junc­tion box, which is good news as that’s an­other thing to tick off the to-do list.

We’ve also man­aged to fit a pair of ra­di­a­tors up front, even though we are run­ning an elec­tric mo­tor and not a typ­i­cal com­bus­tion engine doesn’t mean things don’t get hot, so these two units should pro­vide enough cool­ing power to keep ev­ery­thing at peak tem­per­a­ture.

What else? Well, we de­cided to buy a set of 19s so we could test fit the PB sus­pen­sion and get it all set up, we had to go for 19s sim­ply to clear the whop­ping great 380mm rear brake discs. The wheels have some se­ri­ous poke but they’ll do a job while we get ev­ery­thing but­toned up.

Right, we’ve gotta go, as you can see we’ve got a lot to do…

Yup, that looks about right to us
