The modified Corolla gearbox which is now a 2 speed was finally installed into MR02EV (see earlier posts for details on the modifications).
MR02EV has been a registered road going vehicle for 3 years and covered about 12,000 kilometers in that time, mostly through commuting to work and running around town. It’s a fun car to drive. But right from day one the gearbox has been plagued with problems, excessive noise and excessive backlash, which has just gotten worse over time.
I have a Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Technology Sydney and am employed in Broadcast Television Industry. My hobby is the (continuing) modification of MR02EV. I am also the National Treasurer of the Australian Electric Vehicle Association.
