How to Make an Old Car an EV - /ENGINEERED

We want to empower our fellow enthusiasts to know more, and do more, by learning from some of the best engineers in the game. This week we talk to the geniuses at EV West about their passion for converting the drive trains of classic cars from gas to electric. We wanted to know what it takes, what the response is, and how complicated it is. You may scream "blashemy", but you'll be surprised how fast they can be.

Dual Motor Electric Vehicle Drivetrain With Powerglide 2 Speed Transmission Walkthrough by EV West
Here's a brief 10 minute video that gives a nice overview of the EV West 2 speed Powerglide transmission that runs without a torque converter direct drive to 2 coupled Warp 11 motors. Depending on the voltage and current, these twin motors can put out well over 1000 lb/ft of torque, and 600+ horsepower. We used this motor and transmission combination to power our BMW M3 to the summit of Pikes Peak in 2012 setting an all time record for street legal electric cars. The strength and reliability of this system is key. For more information regarding this bolt in drive train, please visit http://evwest.com for the latest updates.
