Update Dec 2009. Nick M of Pleasanton stopped by and bought the original engine/gearbox combo. It's nice to get some space in the garage. I happily gave him all the other components - cross members, exhaust, spare hood (Aluminum), roll bar and boxes of assorted spares. Really happy to see that lot go. And I know the parts have gone to a good home where they will be used. Recycling at its best... Craigslist rules...

Still working on the electronics for instrumentation. I have the most horrible EMI from the controller or the contactor. It's messing up my simple op-amp circuits.
