1972 Datsun a Electric Car- Drag Race-Datsun Electric vs Cop Car -Electric Drag Racing Car 300HP
Tim took the wheel with our buddy Jason as a passenger as they drag raced a cop car. The video isn't perfect, but it still captures the moment. The officer got the jump on Tim, as the Zombie's rear tires simply smoked. Tim let off the throttle, then stabbed it again only to re-ignite the tires. You can hear the tires still breaking traction through the first part of the run. Once the car hooked up, it ran away from the cop car with ease
Tim gets carried away with this over-the-top tire shredding event. After the smoke cleared, we found tire chunks all over the roof and hood of the car. Our good friend Deputy Sheriff Jason was manning the videocam. You can hear him chuckling as he says, "That's smokey!"

This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric
power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all
electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less
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 driveline
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
$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered

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.
