LiBCM Open Beta: 47Ah FoMoCo Discussion

13655 Views 161 Replies 26 Participants Last post by  mudder
This thread is for any and all questions related to the 47Ah LiBCM project during the Open Beta period.
I will also start publishing my development updates here.

This thread - along with the entire 47Ah FoMoCo project - is in early alpha testing.
There is QTY1 prototype unit running in my car.
Open Beta ETA: 2022, late November

Fill out this form if you want to join the Open Beta waiting list.

Fill out this form if you want to purchase converted FoMoCo modules from me.
FYI: You can purchase cheaper FoMoCo modules here, but then you will need to convert them yourself... and also those modules are untested, and might have physical damage (particularly to the module's unprotected bottom).

If your comment isn't specifically related to LiBCM's 47Ah FoMoCo variant, please post it elsewhere:

Balto, where are you relative to jue motors? I'd be willing to pick mine up before taking my car back to Wisconsin for conversion at Eric's if its not super far off my normal route or near a casino I regularly stop at for work.

How many modules will safely fit in an insight with passenger seat removed. I might be able to assist logistics in a small way. My tahoe will also be returned for so ill have a lot of storage but won't know my route until closer to the date. Generally from California I go east to Phoenix area and then to New mexico or Colorado or both. I wouldn't have the full tahoe for storage as I use part of it for sleeping in while traveling.

As a side note on that how many modules are expected to go to Wisconsin? It always seemed like it had an inordinate number of insights per capita.

Would probably be January at the earliest. That's when Scott thinks the car will be done. That would he the California to Wisconsin trip with the insight. The tahoe to colorado would be shortly after. Might spend some time with family in Wisconsin.

I can give you a heads up on when I'm picking each vehicle back up.

The closest I usually get to Denver is black hawk Colorado but that's not super far from Denver. I could probably come to Denver sometime but if someone came to Blackhawk it would be the most convenient for me.

There is however a strong possibility of work bouncing me between Vegas and New Mexico/Colorado this fall and I'd likely be at Jue motors at least once for servicing on the tahoe so I could do a pickup then.

I'm only purchasing my set from mudder. Did you tag the wrong person? I'm just offering to help with logistics if it works out. I've already agreed to get them from mudder. Eric never suggested getting them through him that I recall. The amount of work mudder puts in on a set would probably cost a fortune to have Eric do.

I was just told by Eric that all non stock projects including mine are on indefinite hold. That won't change anything as far as the tahoe going to colorado and new mexico but it would change the insight going to Wisconsin and carrying a second pack.

On that note where do I take this thing now to have it converted?

Mudder, someone on the Facebook insight page mentioned that the 60s pack has issues with regenerative braking. How big of a problem is it for someone who doesn't plug in regularly and is it looking like it can be overcome or should I settle for 48s?

If I have to settle for 48s the 5ah would be the faster setup since it has similar horsepower and lower weight, correct?
