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

My Civic EV Electric Car Project Part 3 Our AC-50 Electric Motor Kit
2001 Honda Civic Electric Car Project. Our AC-50 Electric Motor Kit. Just
alittle video to show the components I have selected to drive our electric
car down the road. This is a well thought out kit that I have seen in use
and have seen relentlessly tested! This exact same kit and others are
available at http://www.evtv.me/
Our motor @ 108v at 650a up to 3800 RPM will deliver 121ftlbs of torque and
76hp. Its designed and works best in cars under 3000lbs.

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
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

Make Your Own Electric Car
Meet Mike Farlow of Ingersoll Ontario, who has always been way ahead of the
curve when it comes to electricity. Surprisingly, you'll see just how easy
it is to make and drive in a homemade electric jeep! According to Mike,
it's not complex technology and it's been around for about 100 years! Start
ELECTRIC CAR - Part 1
It isn't really a complicated process to do an electric car conversion, but
you will need to obtain certain specialized parts.
You will need: an electric motor, deep cycle batteries, a controller, a
battery charger, an adaptor kit, and various other small parts.
But first, you are going to need a vehicle that you can do your electric
car conversion with. Any vehicle can be used for this project, but some
work better than others.
Heading the list are small cars and trucks, as they are light and strong.
Your first consideration as shown in the detailed plans is to find the
lightest vehicle that will still do the job of hauling you and whatever
cargo you carry around.
Next, you will want a large DC motor that will produce power for your
electric car. The larger the motor, the more power your electric car will
Don't worry that it will be slow either. Many people have the wrong
impression of electric cars; they accelerate as fast as any vehicle on the
road and travel at least 50 mph.
What about batteries?
You will need to locate about 16-20 deep cycle batteries for your car as
well. The plans outline sources of batteries, even free batteries that you
can find with a little effort. The same source will probably have free DC
It's just a matter of asking.
Why do you need this many batteries? In order to achieve a range of up to
100 miles on a single charge.
A controller is needed to fix the amount of current flowing from the
batteries to the motor which determines how fast you go. The controller is
connected to your old gas pedal linkage for smooth control of the vehicle.
In order to charge your batteries between trips, you will need an on-board
battery charger. That way you can just plug it into any common AC circuit
and get charged up again.
Doesn't this sound like fun?
Isn't it time you got started on your own conversion project?
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
