Why need a gear box cant you controll the motor and the can with a speed controll. and then just switch the polarity to go in reverse?
EVric Replies:In the car that I am using the drive train is east west and the gearbox and differential are together in the transaxle.
Without this there is no way to power the wheels.
I will mainly be using third gear and occasionally reverse.
It also saves on another expensive reverse contactor.

I saw the video that had rob muller's 48 volt conversion and it is
similar to the ev that i would like to build-bottom line you might say
but it would suit me perfectly. I live in collingwood ontario canada and
the town is quite flat, not too many hills to speak of right up to the
base of blue mountain(hill 600ft).I s there some way i can get more
details about his car, thank you, vince.
