Speed Records Killacycle
Subject: Killacycle on 'Rapid Turnover; Speed Records' on the Speed Channel
I just got a call from a friend who was watching the Speed Channel and saw
the Killacycle, the world's fastest electric motorcycle
on the show "Speed Records". If you pause at the exact right moment, you
can see me in there. But what I'm most
proud of is the Battery Management System I designed, developed, and
assembled to handle the A123 Lithium Ion Battery pack. The
pack consists of 990 cells; the _exact_ same cells used in DeWalt's new 36V
Lithium Ion product line. This BMS can be seen on the
Killacycle segment when you see those green LEDs glowing, and later in the
show in the White Zombie segment. Later tonight I'll
post a copy of this video on YouTube (after I finish cleaning up after the
flood). I bet if you search for "Killacycle"
and "Speed Records" you will be able to find it on YouTube.
If you would like to see more, you can look at my web site at
www.Ciciora.com, the motorcycle web site at www.Killacyle.com, or
there are a bunch of videos posted on YouTube.com Just search for
"Killacycle" on YouTube.com. One of my videos I filmed and
uploaded has over a quarter million views, and is the #90 most linked video
of all time under "Autos and Vehicles".
