DIY Electric Car: 05 Transmission Basics
Building an electric car, we take a look at the transmission and how we are
going to use it for the EV Geo Metro. This video is an excerpt from the
BUILD YOUR OWN ELECTRIC CAR instructional DVD.
On this project, there's NO CLUTCH! Yep, no clutch. Most of what a clutch
does is disconnect the engine from the road, so you don't kill the engine
when you come to a stop. An electric motor has no problem simply not
rotating when you are stopped.
Remember, you typically DO need a transmission in a DIY electric car, if
for no other reason, simply to have a good place to mount the electric
motor! On a front-wheel-drive car, the differential is also built into the
transmission, so it's easiest to simply reuse the transmission to divide
the electric motor power to BOTH of the front drive wheels.
