      I recently ran across an all electric Alpine project in a nearby garage….It is owned by a south florida doctor and looks like it is gonna work…Note that the electric motor is hooked directly to the original transmission with no clitch or clutch pedal ….I assume you can shift it without a clutch when backing off the throttle momentarily ( I can do this in a semi truck)…..I have nicknamed it "Sunvolt" even tho I have no connection to this car…for pictures go to this link ……

      Cool project! It will embarrass a V8 in a drag race, I’m certain. We’ll have to keep an eye on this.

      I was tolk he has $40k invested…you coulda bought a Nice Tiger and a Nice Alpine for that money….But yes , instant torgue should make a difference and high gear on that tranny is 1:1 …so I wonder how fast it will be off the line, how fast you can shift it and what top MPH will be….The shop is just A few miles down the road from Moroso Drag strip….Coincidence?….mike
