I just got off the phone with Lee at GreenVehicles. The Triac's arrived last Friday, and they are in the process of installing the electronics. This should take up to two weeks to complete.
The dream is getting closer.

Ultracapacitor Pac for extending range

When I get my Triac I would like to eventually get an ultracapacitor pac installed. I have been following the one pictured here, and the results are very good. They claim about a 30% increase in range, although the true benafit is it decreases the stress on the batteries durring accelaration, and captures most if not all of the regenerative breaking. Lead acid batteries can only absorb about 10%.
