Re: [EVDL] What KW are you -ALL- looking for?

I'm looking for what I think most are looking for and that is a motor
power that is enough to make the car operate like a regular car (not
attracting attention for being too slow) and that's probably a minimum
of 40HP for a 1300kg car. that's the basis.
then whatever more is technically relatively easy, I'll take. I
certainly wouldn't mind a sub 4 second to 100km/h car but not if it's
very expensive and clumsy to do.

and since it's possible, something like the tesla motor would be nice at
low cost. small, light and gets the car moving

but for now I'm looking at ADC 6.7 or 8" DC motor or equivalent.
