The Engineering Behind Formula E – How It Works

The Engineering Behind Formula E - How It Works. How does a Formula E car work? We’ll be breaking down the science and strategy behind the battery, the motor, the transmission, the tires, the aerodynamics, the suspension, the brakes and regen, the cooling system, and of course the very unique aspect of the sport of having two cars per driver, swapped mid race. The 170 kW (approximately 230 HP) electric motor used in season 1 of Formula E was developed originally for the McLaren P1 supercar, and at its development it had the greatest power density of any automotive electric motor in the world, with 8 kW per kg. The regulations are now open, so teams can use more than one motor if they’d like, and develop the motors themselves. While the power output can never exceed 170 kW during a race, you can alter the efficiency of the motor, meaning you’ll be able to run flat out longer than other teams if your motor is more efficient. With the weight of the car, including the driver, at just 900 kg (or under 2000 lbs), the cars can hit 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds.

How To Do A Burnout – Manual Transmission

How To Do A Burnout With A Manual Transmission Huge Honda S2000 Burnout - https://youtu.be/MJ1NK02CL6g Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 Special Thanks To: Braden Carlson - https://goo.gl/WYoLG6 Last Place Garage - https://goo.gl/iKZhFN Products Used: FLIR T1K Camera - http://amzn.to/2mgV8XS Affordable Thermal Camera - http://amzn.to/2j2gnNh Garmin 4K Camera Used - http://amzn.to/2fZSSQ0 Data Overlay OBD2 Link - http://amzn.to/2fZMYi3 Warning - The process of doing a burnout could cause your car to explode into a thousand pieces. To be safe, you should never do one. The process of doing a burnout is fairly straight forward. For an automatic transmission, mash both pedals. For a manual, press in the clutch, put the car in first gear, rev up the engine, dump the clutch, and immediately position your left foot onto the brake to hold the car in place. It takes practice to know what RPM the engine should start at, and also modulating the throttle and brake to hold the car in place. How quickly do tires cool after a burnout? After a 40 second burnout, the tires are roasting over 160 degrees Celsius. The tires do cool off fairly quickly however. At 45 seconds after the burnout, temperatures have dropped to 125 Celsius. By a minute, the left tire is just over 100 Celsius. At a minute and 45 seconds, we’re down to about 90, and by two minutes, portions of the tire have dropped below 80 C.
