Nothing says fun like a hot-rod, and nothing says clean and high-torque like and electric, so it makes sense to put the two together.
I met Mark a while back, who runs a powder-coating company in western Wisconsin, and invited him and his car out to an electric vehicles meeting we were hosting. It was in the winter, so not much fun riding around outside in an open car, but I DO have a YouTube video about his car from a couple years ago when he was in the Hot Rod Power Tour.
What’s interesting about this vehicle is that it’s rear-wheel direct-direct drive, which is really the same as I’m planning for the electric motor in my Hybrid Pickup project.
Check out this video, and you can see more photos and info on the project at Mark’s web page for the car - http://www.lightningelectriccar.com/
