    I was going to suggest that kickstarter .com might be helpful for you to manage this project, but it sounds like you are doing fine on your own.

    pEEf, that prototype picture shows 80%/252V. Are you SoC spoofing?

    Peef designed his own Plug-in system as well. He does spoof the system so it stays in EV more. Read his other threads to see his clever efforts.

    Current news:

    4 prototypes are under construction which will be evaluated and if all goes well, we will put the unit into production!

    The hardware will work on any CAN-bus equipped vehicle once software is updated to support it, and once the unit is in production I will begin work on adding other models. (such as the Gen III)

    Since the unit will be customer-upgradable we will be able to easily send out new features and capabilities.

    pEEf,

    Keep up the good work. :rockon: :cheer2:

    Like others, I am hot to go on this.
    Don't want to put the cart before the horse, but:
    * have you settled on a price,
    * where can we send the money,
    * will you accept PayPal?

    +1 I've been following (and admiring) Peef's work with great interest (as he knows).

    Thanks!

    We haven't even grown the trees needed to build the cart yet!

    No, since we haven't even manufactured a unit, how can we?

    You can send me as much money as you want anytime! :D

    Sure!

    Clarification: Who's software: your prototype or the vehicle's?

    Keep up the good work!
