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.

Twin Turbo Delorean - Initial Startup
Initial startup after about two months of custom turbo fabrication and installation. Not real
exciting. It starts and idles, stalls, but it runs. Lots of me running
around checking for leaks. Later found the O2 sensor wasn't working at the
time. I'll post another video after some tuning.
DeLorean Electric Prototype@ 2012 New York Auto Show

1981 Delorean DMC 12
The Delorean DMC 12 was made famous by a combination of the Back to the
Future film series and its chequered production history. But have you ever
wondered what it was like to drive? We did and with thanks to Great Escape
Classic Car Hire (UK) we found out, would you Adam and Eve it it's actually
pretty damn good.

Quimera AEGT01 at Motorland F1 race track
Maximum power: 700 ps
Top speed: 300 km/h
Quimera is very proud to announce that the AEGT001 (All Electric GT 001)
Shakedown, performed the 26th of august, at F1 Circuit of Alcañiz
(Motorland), Spain has been a complete success. During this Shakedown some
critical parts and concepts were tested with outstanding results (speed,
temperature, gearbox, batteries, BMS, mechanical solutions, cooling). The
whole team is now very confident to take the project further in the
development and to start the promotional and testing activities in order
to let the world know about this reference project.
The next steps are:
- Official presentation at Motorland, Alcañiz, Spain. the exact date is
yet to be defined but it will happen during september.
- Frankfurt Motorshow presentation
- Kick-off of the second phase with the introduction of further
- Two protoypes will be manufactured in the coming months and official
tests for interested professional teams and drivers will be conducted first
Electric DeLorean Drag Racing an Electric Porsche
Watch how the world's fastest Electric DeLorean blows the doors of an
electric Porsche at the Power of DC meeting 2008*
*(OK so the Porsche did blow a circuit breaker half way down the track and
summarily wooped my arse after fixing it...)
