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

Electric Starion EV - Electric Car Conversion - Part 3
Welcome to the third installment. It's taken a bit of preparation time,
which is essential rather than diving in to find something we've done is
not quite right - both Nathan and I have been guilty in the past of making
stuff only to discover a better way of doing it. But parts availability has
been the biggest issue; delivery time has been long delayed for many
reasons too complicated to discuss here. In this video we re-assess engine
bay mounting; most of the battery racks are welded up now and the battery
management has arrived (except the master unit, d'oh!). We discuss battery
management, the most efficient use of space in the engine bay, as well as
the AC motor we received that will drive the air-con/power steering. (btw,
the AC motor and BMS come from www.bev.com.au where they are custom-made).
Also an older previously unused segment stripped in about removing weight,
as this is crucial in gaining mileage. Oh, and a mention of power cabling
which we will try to get through some of the sub-frame rather than running
under the vehicle or lumping under the carpet (as the power cable sits
inside a plastic flex conduit roughly an inch diameter), so long as it's
legal which we'll check with someone who knows (guessing it's something
like 600mm distance between u-clamp affixing). The Zivan will sit in
trunk/hatch area to the left near the charging 'fuel' port; not sure about
tire placement yet, but it looks like we'll keep our back seat which is
good thing (and did you know that there is an under-seat sub-frame area
roughly two inches high? Hmmm... possibilities....). As for the battery
tank at rear, we're looking at ducting hot air from it using PC fans and
'Exhaust' steel piping. It'd be nice
to get them through the side vent follies on the pillars, but this would
mean a lot of work (they'd probably be part-exposed in the interior, angled
down rather like roll-cage bars). Overall I would have loved to have
progressed a bit more than we have but there have been circumstances beyond
our control and parts supplies have been an issue all the way along - which
in a sense is a good thing so we don't rush too-obvious solutions that
would otherwise cost in time/energy to undo (in a circumlocutory sort-of
way ;-) ). I'd like to thank Christina for her camera work during the
making of these videos, shot on a two-year old Nokia N93 still going
strong, as well as Linda for filming the air-con motor, without them I'd be
stuffed for making videos about this car.
HOMEMADE CAR BUILT BY AN 18 YR OLD!! DESIGN AND BUILD YOUR OWN CAR!!
Designed my own car when I was twelve, always wanted to build it. Finally
started a few months ago! Its just a weekend project right now. These are
just some pictures I have taken along the way! I will upload a new video
soon with pictures that are more recent! This is just the body buck (Mold).
Only building this one as a prototype and then we will see what happens
from there! I was sort of following the Bailey Blade idea for a little, but
I am also using some ideas i found on another website so I am kind of
mixing the two techniques. If you have any questions about anything email
P.s. I know my design is pretty generic, but for now I didnt want to go
extreme because although a appreciate cars that show off something you have
never seen, I also enjoy just the simple lines that a car has and carries
throughout the whole body. I am working on a render of a more radical body
style right now. Post videos of that soon!
Check out the newest update with the base almost done!!!
