Behind the scenes of building an electric car - The journey
Follow us on a journey of the successes and dissapointments that were tse_10.
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.

ReBirth Auto's Fully Electric 1978 Porsche Carrera- 2 WarP 9's - Inside and Drive
This is the inside of the custom built fully electric vehicle built by Rebirth Auto in St. Petersburg, FL. It is a Porsche Carrera from 1978 which these guys put some serious time and effort into. This is one amazing system that uses tons of the Headway 10ah lithium cells and accelerates like a bat out of hell. It uses 2 WarP 9in motors in series running off of a single Soliton 1 from Evnetics. It outputs 400hp and 600ftlbs of torque with the conservative setting they run to help save their clutch. Thanks to all of the guys out there for being such wonderful hosts, we will be doing just about all of our electric business through those two companies.
