Re: [EVDL] Basic drivetrain questions, was Re: Looking for a Conversion Kit for a 192

Does an EV with an automatic transmission even need a torque converter? Seems to me that a person would only have to select drive, apply the throttle, line pressure would build (assuming this is not a crummy chrysler transmission :p ) and away you go. I guess the motor would need some sort of a rev limiter if it were coupled to a transmission in such a way. Maybe a better way to use an automatic would be to have an external fluid pump so that line pressure was maintained at all times regardless of whether or not the main EV motor was running.

By torque converter, i meant the hydraulic fluid coupling used on cars.
I have never heard of anyone calling a salsbary drive a torque
converter, but I guess all transmissions of any type are just that.
