This super efficient Electrathon car has more track record history than we can list. It was built by our friend Dave Cloud and raced by his talented drivers.

We're offering the complete running vehicle with batteries, charger, instrumentation, spare wheel, spare tires, and a brand new 5 point seat belt.

Construction:

  • The top and sides are made from fiberglass and carbon fiber. 
  • The sides and base are built mostly from double-walled fiberglass panels with honeycomb core, and carbon fiber reinforcements.
  • The front and rear wheel mounting structures are made from welded mild steel box and tubing.

Dimensions:

  • The rear tires are about 44 inches apart (track width).
  • Distance from the front axle to the rear axles is about 7ft.
  • Vehicle body is 11ft long (with the aerodynamic tail installed). Unbolt the 2ft tail for tracks where aerodynamics is less critical, or traffic maneuvering is.
  • Distance from the front axle to the rear axles is about 8ft.
  • Max height is 25"
  • The fuselage is approximately 17" wide, at the widest point.

Weight distribution:

  • 66lbs on each rear wheel. (no driver and no ballast)
  • 55.5lbs on the front tire. (no driver and no ballast)

Car is equipped with:

  • Extremely efficient Lynch Electric Motor (LEM)
  • Motor controller
  • Two "Electrathon America Legal" Optima batteries. We ran a capacity test on the batteries in the car after receiving it, and measured 40.5Amp Hours, in a 60 minute laod test.
  • External charger, 18 Amp (up to 3 12V batteries at once) at 6A each. (Car is currently designed to operate on two batteries). This is the charger we used when we tested capacity.
  • Instrumentation: A "Battery Manager EL" provides real-time battery data for driver and testing. i.e. voltages, current, amp hours, etc.,. A print of the manual is included. 
    And a temperature sensor is mounted to the top of one of the two batteries.
  • Mount points for ballast weight.
  • Rear view mirrors are difficult to see in the images below, but are mounted just inside the side window pockets.
  • Front tire is Kenda, size 16"x1.50"
  • Rear tires are Prime, Comet 20"x1.35"
  • 3 spare rear tires are included.
  • One spare rear wheel is included.
  • New 5 point seat belt harness is included (Mount points exist, but buyer will need to bolt it in place).

Please be aware:

  • This vehicle is designed for high efficiency tracks with wide turns, so it currently has an intentionally limited turning radius. Buyer is responsible to modify it for tighter tracks if desired (such as parking lot courses).
  • Because of it's competitive design, big drivers probably won't fit without modification.
  • As with any previously owned vehicles, this one comes with some dents, chips, cracks, etc., that don't cause any functional problems.
