Plug Bug: Running again!

Electric Bug

An update to the last post: The bug is running again! George, from Netgain motors, suggested seeing if the motor had excessive vibration. When I ran it at 12volts it seemed to hum pretty fine, so I put the car back together. It took a while, but I was running again by last Wednesday. I can’t really tell if the motor has any excessive vibration; it sounds a little different when I put in the clutch, but it doesn’t sound out of balance. So, I’m going to go with it!

Oh, and the little pieces that came out of the motor was balancing putty.

However…I ran into more problems with my rear brakes (next post..)
