Launching Soon: the RW Speedster Electric

Here’s some early information on a new product we’re offering.

Everyone at Rock West Racing is a motorhead at heart, but when we met Michel Bream and his team at EV West, their passion and enthusiasm for electric vehicles got us excited!  They have engineered an exceptional package to convert a vehicle to electric power, and in our case, using a VW transmission coupled with available lithium ion batteries. That got us motivated to collaborate and build the RW Speedster Electric!

The objectives were simple:  use our standard Speedster component kit, modify it to accept the EV West kit, and provide customers an efficient package.  It had to have excellent performance, drive a range of up to 100 miles, be easy to build, and more importantly be a lot of fun to drive. Price is always an issue, so that was a design factor.

We believe we exceeded the objectives! And here is how it happened.   Continue reading Launching Soon: the RW Speedster Electric
