Tesla-Powered Kit Car Runs 9-Second Quarter Mile
https://teslamotorsclub.com/blog/2017/1 ... rter-mile/
A company called EV Controls has stuffed the drivetrain of a Tesla Model S P85 and two battery packs from a Chevy Volt into a sporty kit car capable of a run down the quarter mile in just 9.869 seconds.
The company modifies Tesla’s firmware to work with their own T1-C controller, which summons an additional 60 horsepower more than the stock motor outputs. The kit car body from Factory Five Racing brings the car’s weight down to just 2,100 pounds, about 2,500 pounds lighter than a Model S.
We now offer a standalone controller for the Tesla drive unit that allows you to install this powertrain in other vehicles. It is a touch screen based unit with a 7″ display.
The controller is available in two models, the EVControls T-1 and T-1C.
The T-1 allows CAN control over the drive modes (Drive, Neutral, Reverse), displays the infomation coming back from the inverter, and allows you to control and adjust the power and regenerative braking limits.
The T-1C does all this and adds 12 outputs to control a variety of outputs that any installation would require.
