Re: New toy.........

A surprising (to me, at least...) number of die-hard petrol-heads like to deride electric traction One of the pseudo-complaints I often hear is the lack of a "soulful EXHAUST-NOTE"............ I have also read somewhere of a possible obligation on EV drivers to generate a continuous "...

Re: Siemens EV motor on Ebay

The motor is listed as 250vac. This requires a pack voltage of around 300v but my pack can drop to 230v and it is still OK. I think it is good for an AC voltage of over 110vac. It can rev to 12,000 rpm (400Hz) but I only use mine to 6,000 which in third gear is about 90mph. Power is 30kW continuous ...

Re: Brighton to London "Future Car Challenge"

How did they measure/determine the overall placing for hybrids PHEV's using petrol/diesel and electricity? Sealed tanks? They filled the tanks up at the start and again at the finish with a seal on the filler cap. Unfortunately, some cars such as Kevin's Tesla were not data logged due to all the co...

Re: Brighton to London "Future Car Challenge"

Any update on the techical info? I am pleased to announce that my Elise EV used 11.64kWh from the cells and regenerated 1.89kWh of power over the 92 km or around 56 miles course. I found it difficult to accept the regen. figure but after reading the last link that Kevin added earlier, with the VW G...

Re: A new vehicle from Sinclair ! The c5 mark 2 ??

I think Cedric has another date with the courts.

Do you think Clive might have seen Cedric on one of his London commutes? :lol:

Re: Brighton to London "Future Car Challenge"

ChrisB is correct in an earlier reply that the awards were a little hollow. I am guessing that with both my awards being for "Private Entry", the judges tended to go for privately built rather than privately owned. I would have liked the MGF to have taken one though as he has made a nicer ...

Re: Brighton to London "Future Car Challenge"

Hey Kevin,

Have you got nothing better to do than send links to a site I cannot connect to because we blocked Facebook at work to stop the slaves from enjoying themselves at our expense. :evil:

Thanks anyway and I'll look later.

Re: Brighton to London "Future Car Challenge"

Wow, is that it?

The advert runs for longer.

I could have done a better video on my moby. They only had to ask and pass a thick brown envelope over!
