Any help finding more info on this vehicle
 
I am seriously considering buy this car. its $7000 (called price is $6990)

Wildfire Motors - WF120-2T Total Electric NEV

but they have so little info its annoying. they really skirt around the 24mph imposed software speed limit. I need to know if it can go 40mph without the limiter (its a 120vac motor so it should be able too)

but I just need more information in general. they give so little info on the car.

can anyone help me find it? nothing on google or youtube so I am guessing the name of it is THEIR name and not the original manufacturer's name.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

maybe use 'google'....

Neighborhood Electric Vehicle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

NEV is a 'class' of vehicles that meet certain constrants.
For somebody looking to drop $7k, you really havent done any home work.

For someone who comes off snippy and demeaning you sure don't know how to read very well.

care to enlighten me as to where on that page is "ANYTHING" at all related to this specific vehicle I am inquiring about?

I know all about NEV and NEV class and all that crap.

not interested.

I need info on this specific car.

NO I have not done much homework on "THIS SPECIFIC CAR" because I can not "FIND" any.

so I am assuming the NAME is specific to wildfire.

but its a chinese vehicle hoping to find its other names or its original name anything so I can find more info on this specific vehicle.

I mean your reply is about as useful as someone coming here and asking about geo metro's and you reply with a link to a wikipedia article on what an "automobile" is and tell me to read up on DMV rules for my state.

ie less than useless.

here is what you 'claim' you want to know:
they really skirt around the 24mph imposed software speed limit. I need to know if it can go 40mph without the limiter

If you REALLY know so much, then you 'know' that the class of vehicles are limited by law and design.
For a reason.
If they go faster, then they have to be desgned completely differently.

But forgive me for reading your entire post:
but I just need more information in general

any help would be greatly appreciated

Maybe you should think about how you phrase the question before you post....oh.....and think before you reply. Your analogy is very flawed.

Nerys 01-25-2012 05:15 PM

yeah you missed this part

but I just need more information in general. they give so little info on the car.

I NEVER claimed to want to know more about the speed limiter. you have a reading problem if you think so. I was pretty clear. I need more general information about "THIS CAR"

and just so happens PA lets me go "faster" in nev's but has higher requirements for safety equipment. in OHIO they are not allowed to sell them faster than 24mph but once I come to PA "I CAN" make it go faster.

that was just one example. you stopped on that example. you fixated on that example even though I was not even ASKING you about that bit of info.

I also did NOT ask for NEV information I found "TONS" of that I needed info specific to that car.

you came off as rather snotty in your reply hence my reply.

did I misread that? or did I read it spot on?

THere is an interesting informal 'rating' system on this forum.
I always use it as a guide to the poster.

It's the thank you count on the side.


You have been 'thanked' 12 times..............and you've posted over 700.
That tells alot.

Nerys 01-25-2012 05:24 PM

so I ask for help. you get your panties in a knot over the speed thing that I was not even asking you about and then provide WORTHLESS information on what I asked for.

I call you on it and your reply is to utter more worthless crap about a thanks rating?

yeah your useless. I really hate people like you. bug the crap out of me.

your what we call. trolls

EOL

mcrews 01-25-2012 05:29 PM

obviously a larger number find your posts "thankless" than mine.

By definition, trolls don't get thanked..........


So, your a name caller and 98% of what you post isn't worth a thank you.

WF-120V Total Electric NEV and WF-72V
The WF-120V is a two-seat coupe manufactured by Shandong Huoyun Electric Car Co., Ltd, located in Zibo, China.[4] The WF-72V is a four-seat sedan manufactured by Shandong Pioneer Motorcycle Co., Ltd.[5] The WF-120 is powered by a 8.5 kilowatt, 120 volt AC motor. The WF-72V is powered by a 8.5 kilowatt, 72 volt, AC motor. The styling of the WF-120V seems to be a copy of the Smart, including lines in quarter panels where the Smart doors are supposed to close.[6] This appears to be a liability and the owner of the Smart design (Mercedes)[7] may force the manufacturer to stop import or take other legal action.[who?] As they are registered as neighborhood electric vehicles, both are programmed by the manufacturer not to exceed 25 miles per hour but can be adjusted to run up to 50 miles per hour.
They do not say how to adjust the top speed but on some speed controllers it's a screw adjustment on the controller, others you plug in, on cheaper controllers like this has I suspect it's a screw adjustment.

pathetic quote of the year: nothing on google or youtube so I am guessing the name of it is THEIR name and not the original manufacturer's name.
