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.

Three dog reverse trike motorized go kart test footage
This is a the first real test footage of the Three Dog reverse trike go
kart built from scratch. The only components that were sourced are the
Harbor Freight 6.5HP 200cc motor, the wheels, and front spindles.
Everything else was designed, engineered, and fabricated by D. Soetenga.
This reverse trike was built for a $350.00 budget and it only weighs 80lbs
total with a 34lbs motor. After these test runs some modifcations will be
made to the design.
