Testing the acceleration to an indicated 60kph which is about 55kph.
The final result was 4th gear gave the quickest time despite being slower off the line. Trying to change gears made for slower times in both instances because the clutch has been removed.
3rd :6.9 seconds
3rd & 4th :7.4s
2nd & 3rd :9.3s
Might try 2nd direct to 4th next and see what time that does.
Great Dorset Steam Fair 2008, White Steam car
A White steam car being driven around the 40th Dorset Steam Fair . With its quiet running you would think this was an electric car apart from the steam coming from it . Most of the noise that you here , comes from the wind in
the camera mike .

New Electric Cars Are Better
Just showing off some of the cool new electric cars and putting to rest some of the myths out there. When people think of electric cars, typically they think of older ugly slower models, lead-acid batterys, and BS propaganda they've read slamming the "electric cars"(as though they all carried the exact same attributes)
The battery technology has changed(and will change even more when nanowire battery becomes common), the speeds have changed, the climate versatility has changed, the prices are changing, the car companies are changing... everything is changing for the better. I expect to see a lot more support for EV's during and after 2010.

Electric Cabriolet First Drive
A first drive around the neighborhood in my nearly completed electric car. This is a 96V ElectroAuto VoltsRabbit kit with 16 6V batteries. Everyone agreed it was awesome.. Insert "EV Grin" here..
Fiat 126 good times
My First car, Niki.. Fiat 126 lol
found these videos of me back in 04 havin a nice time fiat style :) 18kw baby! lol
still have the car, will put a larger engine in one of these days.
cant wait to turn it into a wheely popping death cage of miniature proportions :)
Eliica - Super Electric Car - Part 6 of 6
The Eliica (or the Electric Lithium-Ion Car) is a battery electric vehicle prototype or concept car first shown in 2004 and designed by a team at Keio University in Tokyo, led by Professor Hiroshi Shimizu. The 5.1 m (17 ft) car runs on a lithium-ion battery and can accelerate from 0--100 km/h (62 mph) in four seconds (faster than the Porsche 911 turbo at the time). In 2004, the Eliica reached a speed of 370 km/h (230 mph) on Italy's Nardò High Speed Track. The team's goal is to exceed 400 km/h (250 mph), breaking the record set by today's street-legal gasoline-powered vehicles.
The Eliica weighs in at 2,400 kg (5,300 lb) and seats the driver and three passengers. The body was tested in a wind tunnel. The front doors open forward and the rear doors open upward like wings. The car's platform contains 4 tracks of 80 batteries, which make up one third of the vehicle's cost. They currently require about 10 hours of recharging from empty to full charge, and can be easily charged off a residential power grid.
The car has eight wheels enabling it to be closer to the ground for better traction. Each of the wheels has a 60 kW (80 hp) electric motor, giving a 480 kW (640 hp) eight wheel drive which can tackle all kinds of road surfaces. The four front wheels steer. The electric motors mean that the Eliica can deliver a smooth acceleration free from gear shifts of about 0.8 g. Each wheel contains a disc brake and employs a regenerative brake system to recover energy.
There are currently (as of 2005) two versions of the Eliica: a Speed model and an Acceleration model. The Speed model is made to challenge gasoline-based records and has a top speed of 370 km/h (230 mph) with a range of 200 km (120 mi). The Acceleration model is made for the street and has a top speed of 190 km/h (120 mph) with a range of 320 km (200 mi).
The estimated cost of development was in excess of US$320,000. Once the team receives corporate sponsorship, they plan to produce at least 200 units. As of early 2007, the projected price was ¥30,000,000 JPY (about $255,000 USD).
Electric car faster than a Lamborgini 0-60 mph 3.07 sec
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 $2.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at $20.00 per 100kms.

Electric Vehicle VW Conversion
This one-of-a-kind EV has been extensively field tested in the Cobb Mountain area and has performed remarkably well. It has consistently demonstrated over thirty-mile range up and down Cobb. It also appears to be able to get over 40 miles per charge driving on flat (and/or downhill) terrain. The less amperage drawn from the batteries (conserving charge), the more distance one may travel.
