EV West isn't like other electric car builders. They aren't trying to save the planet from gasoline emissions, they are trying to build race cars using electric technology for events that can best use that technology. The Pikes Peak International Hillclimb, with a total driving distance of under 20 miles at very high elevation, is one of those events. We take their Pike's Peak M3 to the Dyno to find out what 400 Kilowatts means in horsepower, then to see how it drives.

World's First Electric Car Grand Prix
The French Pyrenees town that staged the world's first Grand Prix nearly a century ago now hosts the world's first electric car Grand Prix. Pau in southern France has seen many a race since 1901 - but none as quiet as this one. For more news and videos visit ☛ http://ntd.tv Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛ http://on.fb.me/s5KV2C A century after Grand Prix racing started in Pau, the French town has staged the world's first Electric Grand Prix. All 12 entries used the same vehicle, the Exagon-built Andros racing car. Originally designed for racing on ice, the car can reach speeds of 112 miles per hour. Winding through the picturesque town of Pau, the 1.7 mile course hasn't changed much over the decades. Its winding route through the town has earned it comparisons with better-known Monaco. But it's Pau that has the honor of having hosted the very first Grand Prix in 1901. The resort in southwestern France, just 31 miles from the Spanish border, is a proven testing ground for future Formula 1 world champions on Formula 2, 3 or 3000 vehicles. For the die-hard motor sports fans raised on the roar of high-powered petrol engines on full throttle, electric car racing might seem a little tame. But others found the low-pitched whine -- a bit like a jet engine but much quieter -- a pleasant change from the ear-splitting roar of the traditional racing engine. Participants included Nicolas Prost, the son of France's Formula 1 World champion Alain Prost, as well as Fabien Barthez, the former goalkeeper who helped France win the World Cup in 1998. But neither could defeat the reigning champion of the Andros Trophy electric series on ice. Adrien Tambay won the race ahead of Mike Parisi and Soheil Ayari, who came in third.

Electric Starion - Electric Car Conversion - Part 1
Three years ago I knew nothing about cars nor cared for them much, until Stephanie Walsh got me interested in Starions. Her ex said back then, 'You gotta know about cars or some mechanics will rip you off'. Sadly, Stephanie passed away in 2007. I have decided to do an electric car project in her honour, as she was a wiz at electronics and taught me much in that area also. Together with Nathan Bolton we are now converting my rare Starion to full electric drive. This is the first video of a series I intend to do following the conversion of my car. We now have a Kostov 10.7 inch electric motor that used to be in an electric bus for the Sydney Olympics. I've got lithiums on the ship from China, a Curtis controller and other bits and pieces coming for the air-con, power steering etc. The car has been a headache in some ways, getting it up to spec, re-spraying in places etc but overall it should look good when done and will comply with local laws for on-road every day use. This video covers engine mounting estimations, rear-battery compartment construction, and Nathan's teaching me to weld (and as someone commented, "You had better hide your boobs or sparks will fly' ;-P ). The adaptor plate for the gear box has already come back from the machinist and in this video we drop the motor in and temporarily position it to get a rough estimation of available space - there should be plenty for the controller and batteries, along with a home-designed cooling block for the controller.

Electric Ariel Atom vs Porsche Carrera GT Ferrari 360 Spider NO CONTEST
Electric Ariel Atom vs Porsche Carrera GT Ferrari 360 Spider 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 drive line 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 $25.00 per 100kms. Ferrari 360 Spider - 400Bhp / 3197lb Porsche Carrera GT - 605Bhp / 3043lb Wrighspeed X1 - 220Bhp / 1536lb Wrightspeed X1 • 3-phase AC induction motor, 236hp at the motor shaft • 182 ft lbs torque at the motor shaft, from 0 rpm to 6,000 rpm • 13,300 rpm rev limit • weight 1,536 lbs • no clutch, single gear ratio 8.25:1 . 25kw/hr Li-ion battery pack.
