There was great turnout this weekend in the Village at Big Bear. So many cool cars around, and we were excited to preview our new RW Speedster Electric, which is launching soon. Here are a few pics for you!
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 are really excited to have shipped our first full car just a few days ago. I was a beautiful electric blue RW Spyder. We’re working on a story to show you how the job went over time; we’ll post it soon with glamour shots included. But in the interim, here are some pics of the car in the middle of a few final tweaks!
We’ve been working on another side project and have a new kit offered in our Parts and Components Department. Take a look at our Spyder Headrest Fairing. There are several options for you to choose from.
