"Ultracapacitors, weigh 20% but unfortunately store 10% of a lithium battery"
^based on volume.
based on power density (w/kg), they're 7-10 times higher.
based on energy density (wh/kg), they store 1/2.
Agreed, it would add at least 300lbs to the vehicle. Motor, battery, capacitor, controller, wires.
Maybe I should clarify. If FPC weighs ~10lbs less than XPC, that lower inertia would help offset the electric motor rotor inertia and therefore retain sporty rev characteristics. Plus, maybe the...
Lets say 4.7L could make 440hp & 360tq. Plus, 60hp & 200tq electric motor.
Electricity stored mostly in capacitors because they're lighter. With a small battery pack to help balance out the package.
Not what I personally want. Just brainstorming.
Maybe shorter stroke FPC V8 & electric hybrid would be a good match.
Light weight FPC would help offset electric motor's inertia. Electric motor would boost torque output. Small displacement & hybrid would both increase MPG.
Possible way to meet future CAFE.
Hopefully it's something simple.
Maybe camber is off a degree.
you can use a smart phone and board for a quick check.
As I'm sure you know, they should be similar angle and both leaning inward, negative camber.
Rotate rear tires left to right. If the...
I'm not complaining. I trust their judgment. Watched the video yesterday and remembered no CF driveshaft. Then read the article stating might have CF. Just wanted to pass along the info.
Sounds like carbon fiber wasn't "stiff enough" for FPC and not a cost saving measure. I'm sure people will...
for what it's worth '14 GT was 3,618lbs.
Either, writer googled the incorrect info or Raj Nair was speaking in terms of '11-14. Most of design and development was done in those years so it's a possibility it's stuck in his mind. Although, logically he should and probably does speak in terms of...
price is ok. Not my style, but reasonable. I can see more people buying GT over Roush RS1. But RS1 buyers aren't being ripped off.
just a guess on the breakdown.
~2,000-2,500- body kit (OEM quality: front bumper, lip, upper & lower openings, rockers, rear valance, slitter, more..)
Everything is limited. Limited by orders or limited by manufacturer.
Limited production implies manufacturer has the capacity to build but decides to stop making even with potential orders on the table. GT350 is not limited production.
GT350 is projected to be a low volume production vehicle...
