    Aussie EV Autocross Special

    Hi everyone,

    I have been competing in grass roots motorsport since 2005. But recently I built myself an Electric Vehicle (EV) from the ground up.

    Engine: Advanced DC FB1 4001
    Exhaust: None
    Suspension: Home grown
    Wheels: Various (some Bob Jane specials and some Simons)
    Modifications: Everything from the ground up
    Stereo Audio / Visual: None
    Estimated Power: Power is not huge at around 75 KW but the torque is 440nm from 0 revs.

    I know its not the usual ride you would expect to see here. I have built this car specifically for khanacross events. It weighs 530kg. Most of the running gear is from an N13 pulsar. It is front wheel drive and still has all 5 forward gears.
    I also use it for Motorkhana and hill climbs but it is most suited to Khanacross. The batteries are from a Holden Volt. They give 7kwh of power starting at 170v dc and a peak of about 500amps. The motor controller is a Zeva also capable of 1000amps.

    Here are a few videos from the latest event (Motorkhana) The car is OK at Motorkhana but is much better suited to Khanacross due to the size and wheelbase.

    The car has progressed a fair way. I managed to place 3rd outright in Round 2 of the Queensland Motorkhana Championship.
    It is now using a Zeva 1000amp controller. The weaknesses are the rear suspension geometry, width and steering speed.
    I am continuing to compete in this car until the end of the year when I will use many of the components in my new car.

    My next event is a khanacross at Lakeside hosted by the Lotus club August 27. I am really looking forward to that.

    Here are a few more videos from the last event:
