i guess that's why german car manufactorers arent producing electric cars yet, lol

How long can it run at full output before it thermals and goes into limp mode?

until we find a way to make electricity ON BOARD, electric cars will never be usable.

Author Erik Hadinger ( ago)
what a weak chincy Dino only 250 horse started making that thing Bend and look unsafe most 2 liter 4 cylinder engines are producing at least 300 horsepower now or better. that Electric Motor & Control System that runs it is so complicated that you need a rocket scientist what a joke. I do like the sound of a Tesla Roadster get it done show the video

tesla should sell the motor units so we can convert our gas guzzlers to electric green vehicles

Is it true that Tesla and the mercedes B class share the same engine?

Author Don Finch ( ago)
very interestink, subscribed

5:00 An electric motor with an inbuilt immobilizer, thats what it came too. On the other hand a standard ECU lso has immobilizers built in. Nice project...

Author taipeikartman ( ago)
New customization of Tesla. Americans dont even have the technology to customize it and have to sub it out to the swiss.

Author Bryan Hall ( ago)
Q: Why are you keeping the brake pedal so close to the accelerator? Why not space them out so that you don't have to stuff your feet into one corner of the foot box?

Author Jeremy Mccubbin ( ago)
If the electric motor patents and technology are available to the public. Should you not be able to use them or simply ask tesla how to control the motor? I probably don't know what i'm talking about....

Author Harley Brignall ( ago)
so what is the difference between this car and the Dodge Circuit?

Author biscuitninja ( ago)
Hp? Torque?

Author mondayfool ( ago)
This is an interesting project, however I am afraid you will be disappointed. Of course it depends on your expectations, but as you probably figured out, there is no point pulling as much power as tesla does. Tesla rates the driveline at 90kW continuous.

Author Ryukachoo ( ago)
wait wait
imobilizer over CAN?
i can't tell if that's dumb or genius

Author kilésengati ( ago)
Tesla should start producing the Roadster again already.

Author Patrick Sproule ( ago)
Dialogue should be panned center / mono folks. Stereo panning is for music and SFX.

this is some cool shit...

meh no anti lag open dump tubes from turbo wastegate i like i and all but yea guess its just how it goes choices......glad to see innovation at its finest

Author Tony Nguyen ( ago)
4wd dual motor? I want to do this build.

Author NewZeroland ( ago)
THIS IS SO EXCITING! Great idea with the regen paddle.

Author Brandon Gulbis ( ago)
instead of a paddle put the regen on the floor where a clutch pedal would go

That;s some ugly welding on that rear sub frame-shame on a project like this-

Author Gary Wait ( ago)
welds on frame were shocking he might be a tech genius but fk me his welding shocking

Are you running the stock open differential?

Author seedorfj ( ago)
Why have modes so you can use regen with the brake pedal, but not have a mode for throttle based regen.

Author Brian Jonas ( ago)
Awesome project. I like the engineering that is exposed in these videos. The instant torque and computer management is what makes the Tesla so fast, and I am sure this thing will fly too!

Author ratgreen ( ago)
This Sasha guy is a genius

Author Peter Jörgenson ( ago)
why dont you just wire the engine breaking into the break ?

Author Janis 86 ( ago)
Will it fit in my Honda?

Author TABRAO ( ago)
The max torque is a LOT lower than the power.

Author Anthony Buscemi ( ago)
Does this guy know that independant traction control systems are available that are designed to give the car the most acceleration without much loss of grip? I've seen them used in time attack cars the most, but if your worried about feathering the throttle, these systems help launches and exiting corners. They don't bog the car like factory systems either.

Author jay7264 ( ago)
can i have the original power train. mmmm supercharged 2gr goodness

The mic really separates the left and right channel. It's like ASMR Speed Academy.

Author Tyler Hoeve ( ago)
This car will have no passion, I have no idea how people think this could ever be the future of racing it's the exact opposite reason we started racing all together. The only reason electric is going anywhere is because of regulations it's not because they are better but because our government wants to control every aspect of our lives don't fall for this electric self driving bullshit people.

There's no way blue Lightning isn't a tribute to "The Blue Flame"
Baldilocks seems old enough to be aware of The Blue Flame.
I can see White Lightning as independent, but not Blue Lightning.

Some high quality beardage going on there ;)

Author Lucky Bob ( ago)
please fix your audio. I would like to watch this but the audio messes with my ears.

Author pat mac ( ago)
this host is strongly irritating.

Author Tougeninja Productions ( ago)
Lol the dude with the beard looks like that dude that hates leafy (Keemstar). Le'ts get right into the electric car build.

Author Erik Tomlinson ( ago)
Your stereo mic channels are swapped, headphone listening is excruciating lol.

Author Carlos Leamus ( ago)
Why not a V10 (maybe from an e60 M5) and convert it on a Hennessy Venom

Author Loanword Eggcorn ( ago)
The best place for regenerative braking is fully integrated with the brake pedal. It's ergonomically best and also best in terms of safety to not have aggressive lift throttle oversteer, especially for non-racing-trained street drivers.

Author shadowkn1ght ( ago)
where would one obtain a Tesla motor from? obviously apart from getting a salvaged tesla

Author sasja de vries. ( ago)
Actually the biggest dumptruck in the world _(belaz 75710)_ uses 2 brake pedals, one for electric braking, one for mechanical brakes. It's a diesel+electric hybrid.

Author Sven C ( ago)
pleace record the microphones in mono, this left right nonsense sucks, talk to professional sound recording people to do it right

Author saha6818 ( ago)
Yes. More making cars faster and electric. Don't stop until the cars in my driveway are electric, burning rubber, and making me grin.

Author Deano P ( ago)
hey Pete. deano here from cdsmc. I actually help make the sub frames for those Tesla motors front and rear. lmk what you think of our robotic aluminum welding :)

If this video represents the future of car mods, I am cool with it. Cant wait to see this project unfold!

Author SemmyRace ( ago)
Awesome project. Good luck with it!

4:45 "10 times more complicated than a BMW ECU"

This guy has no idea what he's talking about. He's actually got it backwards. Modern engine controllers are easily 10x more complicated than an inverter module / motor controller...

Also, "it does its own immobilizer over CAN"

No way, Tesla does its immobilizer just like everyone else???

Author Mario C ( ago)
This is one exiting project. I hope there is plans for producing a kit?

Author Viktor Dimitrovski ( ago)
Really cool stuff on the regen braking. Keep it up guys. Can't wait to see this beast driving. Please keep us updated.

Author Oscar Alvarado ( ago)
Really, though, why didn't he just use a tesla roadster???

Author Royal Highland Crusader ( ago)
large garbage disposal swap.

Author AKEF BADR ( ago)
how u say tesla is on the dyno nd then not even once was it true fuckin layin to us all nd just rollin up to market ur shit...

Author Og boost Junkie ( ago)
That paddle should be a pedal would be easier for the driver especially while turning, 3 pedals re gen brake gas

Author One4speed ( ago)
I've got Sasha on my right ear and dave on my left, nice stereo edit guys lol but seriously this project looks super promising

Author Earnest Bunbury ( ago)
Do NOT use 5.1surround in POST PRODUCTION, for GOD's SAKE

Author Andrew Tuohy ( ago)
all I can say is WOW and when can I get one!!!!

Author sieve5 ( ago)
Fuck yea.

Author Hishaam Patel ( ago)
a vertical "handbrake" lever might be better if the paddle is fix to the steering column...because of where the steering wheel will be during cornering...just a thought...

Author YouTube is fucking everyone up ( ago)
Get an armytrix and a wing and led under lights and wrap it in green like tanner fox

I'm kidding hell no this is a sick build also where did he get the motor?

Author jay be ( ago)
I can't wait to see the car altogether

Author willibn ( ago)
why not just start with a Tesla Roadster? It's based off the Lotus.

Author andrew mc ( ago)
This is a great build!. I have said for years that converting classic vehicles to high powered electric drive would be a great business!. look forward to more from on point!

Author Dustin Hutchinson ( ago)
Top notch engineering. 👍👍

Author Tony Ash ( ago)
So sick!

Author Matthew Sutton ( ago)
As much as I enjoy y'all videos and your adventures with Sasha at Onpoint Dyno, I'm still not the slightest bit interested in electric vehicles... Lol

Author Jon and Stew's ( ago)
This is a really really cool project. I'm excited to see it some more.

Author Mugshot Marley ( ago)
Someone should let that guy know that he has two shirts on...

Author Nicholas Rodrigues ( ago)
I literally only watched this because it's Speed Acadamy. If anyone else makes an EV video I'm not watching it.

"Okay, sure, yeah." In other words, Dave needs it to be repeated in english

Author Robert Kohut ( ago)

Author raph151515 ( ago)
the regen should not kick in totally with throttle up, instead it should be mixed with the brake pedal. Not sure of the ergonomics of having 2 brake controls. To mix the regen with the brake, the pedal should be active to give a smooth feedback between the regen torque and the brake pressure. a computer should decide for the driver so as soon as the braking need exceeds the regen potential power the brake kicks in instantly

Author A Good Person ( ago)

Author Ricardo.A ( ago)
Great video and love the camera angles now

Author garrett2jz ( ago)
what kind of exhaust is gonna be used?

Author Zango Vu ( ago)
This is weird but I'm excited for the future of electric car tuning after Sasha started talking about on demand regenerative braking. Very cool.

Author manucul28 ( ago)
This is so great can't wait to see more of this built.

Author Jogl Mcbuckel ( ago)
if I was going to build this my self how much would it cost 100000?

Author larry dobberthien ( ago)
If I may be so bold, who is funding this project?

Author Fawnzee ( ago)
so you're making a tesla roadster?

Author Keith Doran ( ago)
sasha its time to go full bald homie

Author mcspikesky ( ago)
great stuff. this is pioneering ting! respect

Author Dillan Martin ( ago)
This is the stuff that car guys really want in an electric car and the fact that it's here now is mind blowing I didn't really honestly think I would live in a time where electric cars would actually react that type of level and tuning I don't care if you like cars and enjoy the way that this sport all ways is progressing then there is no way you can't respect that scary ass curve on that dump sheet if he would have just hit it it definitely would have broken something as soon as all that power can be put to the ground with that motec system it's going to be a beautiful thing to watch !!! Great job Sasha and those other guys as well that make the controllers that communicate to the motec from the tesla. That regen pedal will also make left foot braking a little easier too I guess mine as well make the right paddle a throttle, what is the difference between the regen paddle and the brake pedal?

Author Joey Gomez ( ago)
I never clicked so fast!

Author Blinking Brake Lights ( ago)
Wow, now this is one crazy build. I'm very curious how this car will look and perform once completed. Good luck guys!

Author 177SCmaro ( ago)
Electric motor on a dyno? It's just not the same...

Author Dan Bonnett ( ago)
So he has the coolest Z I've seen AND his electric car is going to be tits. Sasha is On Point ;)

Author Vlammenzee ( ago)
Id almost wish these vids would be like an hour long, it's just so interesting to watch and listen to. great stuff!
