Aussie EV Autocross Special
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
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.
But there are better videos on my Youtube channel
I have created a new Youtube channel and Facebook page:
