[EVDL] 0 to 100 mph in 6 sec. Drayson B12/69EV
Video clip of testing of the Drayson GT race car B12/69EV at MIRA
facility in England.
This car clocked zero to 100 MPH in 6 seconds, with very conservative
software limits in place for these initial tests. Drayson has a lot
planned for the B12/69EV GT car, so stay tuned.....
The KillaCycle team designed and constructed the battery pack for
this vehicle. Mavizen put us together with Drayson and worked all the
logistics. Derek Barger pitched in to help with a portion of the
fabrication on this huge pack made from A123Systems cells. I did most
of the design work, while Eva did most of the fabrication work on the pack.
Some links to more information about the car and about Drayson Racing
This pack uses the new upgraded version of the A123Systems 26650 M1
cells (Called the "M1B" model 26650, not to be confused with "B
grade" cells.) In addition to the nifty black stripes printed on the
end of the cells, they have more than 10% higher power output and
about 10% more energy content in the same size cell. The M1B cells
each weigh a touch more than the standard M1 cells.
