Submission + - Fully electric cars for DIY garage hackers

An anonymous reader writes: Electric vehicle enthusiasts have been building and converting standard gas-powered autos into pure electric vehicles for some time now. While conversion information has been available, a new web based community has emerged to help support the electric vehicle movement and welcome in new who are people thinking of converting their own vehicles. This web forum provides features which merge current knowledge with new discussion topics. Its long term goal is to provide a central location of discussion and information which will bridge the gap across the spectrum of EV owners.

Robert Green, founder of the site, stated, "I've always been very into the concept of zero-emission vehicles. After seeing 'Who Killed the Electric Car', I started checking sites on the web to see if there was sufficient information to aid people in converting their own cars to reliable fully electrics. I spent a considerable amount of time looking for information, but had problems easily finding solutions. I decided to take action and put together a site that will bring organized information to the masses."
