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

Torque Converters Explained -EricTheCarGuy

In this video I cover the purpose and operation of the turbine, stator,
impeller, and torque converter clutch. I hope the explanation and
practical give you some insight into how these parts work to not only
transfer power from the engine to the transmission, but also how it drives
the transmission pump and doubles the torque output of the engine when you
take off from a dead stop. I've wanted to make this video for some time.
In fact I've had the fans sitting in the back of the shop for almost a
year. Now that I have the Automatic Transmission Dissection video under my
belt I thought I would add a torque converter dissection into the mix. I
hope you enjoy this video and that it gets you a better understanding of
torque converter operation. Especially since I killed my air compressor
cutting this one in half.

Yes this is indeed 'take 2' of this video. I changed a few things to make
the information more accurate. I am going to be posting the old video for

2010 HOT RODS & RACE CARS Car Show & Cacklefest: Pacers Fuel Altered
50 years ago, CHARLIE DODGE and GEORGE SNIZEK, Conceived, Constructed, and
Raced, what became known as one of the Fastest and Most Beautiful Fuel
Altereds in drag racing....
Wherever they went, the Snizek & Dodge Racing Team's roadster, aka the
"TASMANIAN DEVIL", running out of their "PACERS AUTOMOTIVE" shop on Long
Island, set speed records and took home best appearing awards. It quickly
became a crowd favorite as well as a feared competitor and event winner at
drag strips nationwide.
45 years later, a group of former Top Fuel drivers from Long Island got
together and recreated that Icon of Speed which is seen above.
In just SIX months time, ROY MILLER, BILLY LYNCH, BERNIE SHACKER, DENNIS
QUITONI, Pacers' original driver/co-owner, GEORGE SNIZEK, and George's son,
SCOTT, have built a stunning, authentic nitro-fueled recreation of The
Pacers original altered roadster which returns us all back to the drag
strip in the middle of the 1960's.
Billy Lynch fired up the car at the 3rd Annual Hot Rods and Race Cars Show
at East Neck Auto to the delight of many of its friends. In fact, he even
had its original driver, George Snizek, in the seat and Charlie's family on
hand which made it extra special.
It didn't matter if you weren't at the show because you probably heard it
if you were anywhere in town. We even set the alarms off at the HSBC bank
next door from the sound coming from The Devil.
The annual Long Island HOT RODS & RACE CARS Car Show and Cacklefest at East
Neck Auto is always brings unique fun to the show. Being able to let the
crowd experience-or-relive history is what its all about. It makes it extra
special and entertaining for all.
