Turn up the volume! Myers Motors NmG total electric personal commuter car. Rear brake temporarily disabled via proportioning valve. Electric motor input power is 93.8 HP, which is programmable with any PC computer up to about 180 HP. Car weighs 1300 LBS. Few people have ever seen a total electric vehicle except for golf carts and airport shuttles so they base their idea of Electric Vehicle performance on those examples. This demonstration is performed to prove otherwise. The torque curve of an EV traction motor is flat from 0 RPM to around 5,000RPM. That is why Tweety instantly blisters its tire at 75 MPH during the burnout and never slows up until the petal is lifted. The reason for line-lock braking is so the car stays in the field of view. Also, there is not enough room on the street for a no-brake burnout. Check out www.nedra.com
