Also, Futurama has been picked up by Comedy Central for 26 new episodes! Not really relevant to the EV, but cool anyway.

Good News Everyone!
After carefully measuring and re-measuring the positions of the transmission, drive shaft, motor and their relative position's to each other and the chassis, I've come to the conclusion that everything is lined up nearly perfect. I had been concerned that because the motor was resting on the sub fame, once I put the motor/transmission assembly in place, that it was tilting the whole assembly up. It turns out that while it's resting on the sub frame, the assembly is angled down ever so slightly. I will need to determine how much it needs to come up from the sub frame and then construct the front motor mount to create and maintain that space. Good news indeed!
