Help calculating max speed of my electric car

2867 Views 13 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  sadcar
What would be the max speed of my electric vehicle? I need a systemic way to calculate this given BLDC ratings: Voltage, Rated Power, Rated Speed, Rated Torque, Rated Current, No load Current, No Load Speed. Also using these constants: Weight and coefficient of friction. There are two motors. We are ignoring any resistance from the shape of the vehicle. The car is in a vacuum.

Thank you all for your insight. It's not for homework. I am on a team designing a scale model hyperloop pod and my partner and I are stuck on finding the best way to calculate the speed of our pod based on the BLDCs we are choosing. That is why we are ignoring air drag and I said vacuum.
