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

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.

hybrid-electric vehicle, will share. Here is a look at the way these core
technologies are used to make several types of vehicle.
