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

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.
