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

The "TwisterShifter" by Kilduff for Trucks and Benchseats
Great for bench seat cars and trucks. The throw is only 12" with a 20"
handle. The shifter handle in twisted 90 degrees to give more gate area in
the front to back motion. This prevents skipping. Also, the twisted handle
allows for bending in 2 planes. Can ratchet too.

The Powerglide is a two-speed automatic transmission designed by General
Motors. It was available primarily on Chevrolet from January, 1950
through 1973, although some Pontiac models also used this automatic
transmission after the fire at the Hydra Matic factory in 1953. Power
Glides were used extensively on Pontiacs produced for the Canadian market
with Chevrolet power trains. When introduced on upper-level Chevrolet
models in 1950, the Power Glide represented the first automatic
transmission offered in a low-priced automobile; in contrast, Ford did not
offer their automatic transmission until 1951, while Plymouth car buyers
had to wait until 1954. The transmission was simple and very durable, which
