http://www.evalbum/1093 Vehicle 1978 Ford Pinto 2-Door Sedan My buddy Hank Buettner and I will turn this into a quick street/strip mobile. www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMGomFODHk0 Motor Netgain WarP 9 & TransWarp 9 Series Wound DC Both motors will be coupled together and will direct drive the rear end from the TWarP9's 1.370 hardened, splined shaft through a Turbo 400 Shorty tailshaft. www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tt0LSml0JTI Drivetrain Direct Drive to either a Ford 8" (stock) or modified Ford 9" rear end. 3.25:1 Controller Cafe Electric Z2K-EHV Need I say more :-) Batteries 60 Hawker 16XE, 12.00 Volt, Lead-Acid, AGM Two strings of 30. One in the back seat. One in the infamous "exploding gas tank" area :-O System Voltage 360 Volts Charger Manzanita Micro PFC-50 Heater The smoking pavement DC/DC Converter Vicor TBD Haven't figured this one out yet. Starting to steer away from Vicor. Instrumentation The windshield and the Track Timer! Top Speed 127 MPH (204 KPH) Acceleration Targeting 60 mph in 3.5 sec. And 12 Seconds in the 1/4 mile :-) (we made it to 12.47 in the first season out :-) Range 1 Miles ( 1 Kilometers) This'll be primarily a dragster. But we should be able to drive it around town and to shows and EVents. (and to work some times to show off) Watt Hours/Mile 250 Wh/Mile Just from data spewed from the Zilla it looks like I'm averaging 250WH/mi in my driving to work and back on the street. EV Miles Current: 320 Miles (514 Kilometers) Seating Capacity 2 and some stuff. Curb Weight 3,200 Pounds (1,454 Kilograms) Stock weight of the Pinto was 2350 pounds. 2.6l V6 and C4 Tranny came out at 450#, two Warp9's went in at 300#, Zilla, Roll bars, extra for the 9" rear, drive line loops and battery trays that came out heavier that I wanted push my estimate to the 3200# range.
