Worlds fastest street legal ELECTRIC CAR 1972 Datsun 1200 Whtie Zombie.
This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less than 7%.
Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at $20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered car.

This Electric E36 Makes 850 lb/ft of Torque at the Wheels! - /TUNED
EV West isn't like other electric car builders. They aren't trying to save
the planet from gasoline emissions, they are trying to build race cars
using electric technology for events that can best use that technology. The
Pikes Peak International Hillclimb, with a total driving distance of under
20 miles at very high elevation, is one of those events. We take their
Pike's Peak M3 to the Dyno to find out what 400
Kilowatts means in horsepower, then to see how
Dual Motor Electric Vehicle Drivetrain With Powerglide 2 Speed Transmission Walkthrough by EV West
Here's a brief 10 minute video that gives a nice overview of the EV West 2
speed Powerglide transmission that runs without a torque converter direct
drive to 2 coupled Warp 11 motors. Depending on the voltage and current,
these twin motors can put out well over 1000 lb/ft of torque, and 600+ horsepower. We used
this motor and transmission combination to power our BMW M3 to the summit
of Pikes Peak in 2012 setting an all time record for street legal electric
cars. The strength and reliability of this system is key. For more

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
2014 Tesla Model S Performance (416hp) - 0-180 km/h acceleration (1080p)
Amazing autobahn acceleration test with the super innovative TESLA Model S
as the range topping P85 Performance Model featuring 416 hp and 600 Nm from
an all-electric drivetrain. I honestly have to say, that I have NOT driven
anything like this before. The power is so instant that it takes your
breath. No other car in the world can deliver such performance and instant
pull without spinning the rear-wheel tires. Yes, accelleraction feels like
you were driving an all-wheel-drive car that weighs nothing;-) Besides that
amazing punch, the rest of the car is just as good and driving around in
town is a sheer pleasure. I don't really know if the video can transport
this astonishment, but I am definately looking forward to your LIKES and
COMMENTS. And please SUBSCRIBE to Automann-TV, weekly car drives, for FREE!
Behind the scenes of building an electric car - The journey
Follow us on a journey of the successes and dissapointments that were
Team Swinburne Electric 2010, AKA tse_10, was the first year a group of
Swinburne engineering students endevoured to develop and build an Electric
Vehicle for the Formula SAE competition. The team hit trouble when they
blew up their motor controller, just over a week before the competition.
The team then borrowed another motor controller which also ended up
blowing. The team then borrowed ANOTHER motor controller, to which they had
some success, until the night before the competition, when it also blew up.
In total the team blew up 3x $4,000 controllers, 6 times (after repairs).
It is thought that the motor is faulty and is causing the issues.

New Electric Cars Are Better
Just showing off some of the cool new electric cars and putting to rest
some of the myths out there. When people think of electric cars, typically
they think of older ugly slower models, lead-acid batterys, and BS
propaganda they've read slamming the "electric cars"(as though they all
carried the exact same attributes)
The battery technology has changed(and will change even more when nanowire
battery becomes common), the speeds have changed, the climate versatility
has changed, the prices are changing, the car companies are changing...
everything is changing for the better. I expect to see a lot more support
for EV's during and after 2010.
