DIY Electric Car: 05 Transmission Basics
http://300mpg.org/electric-car-instructional-dvds/ Building an electric car, we take a look at the transmission and how we are going to use it for the EV Geo Metro. This video is an excerpt from the 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.





Indian Builds Affordable Compact Car
India is the home to one of the world's smallest and cheapest consumer cars: the Tata Nano. But now one mechanic has built an even more compact car at his workshop in southern India. He was inspired by the lack of road space and the ever-increasing cost of living. For more news and videos visit ☛ http://english.ntdtv.com Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛ http://on.fb.me/s5KV2C The owner of this Bangalore mechanical workshop has built an affordable compact car. The lack of parking space and the increasing cost of living were the main inspiration for Narsimha Raju, who built the two-seater car for those on a low budget. [Narsimha Raju, Compact Car Builder]: "As you know in our society, we don't get proper space to park our cars or even moving on road, there is no space. Because of this congested life everybody, I thought why should I not do a compact car, which is suitable to everyday, cost wise and space wise. And that was the inspiration." Raju's affordable car is on the same budget as a two-wheeler but with added protection. [Narsimha Raju, Compact Car Builder]: "The car is mainly suitable to an ordinary person who can afford a two wheeler." Once officially approved, his car will be on sale for around 1,700 U.S dollars. The helmet shaped car has upward opening doors, weighs around 150 kilograms and has a four-stroke petrol engine of 175 cc. It can cover 35 kilometres per litre with the highest speed of 80 kilometers.

ELECTRIC CAR - Part 1
http://tinyurl.com/electric2-car 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 have. 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 motors too. 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?





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. Music, San Francisco, by: Global Deejays
