Hello from Norway

Hi. I have searched the web for a community who share my interests, this site shows the most promise. For me it seems like you guys have an unlimited well of knowledge, and the will to do something with it. I hope i wont be flamed too much for my bad english.

Here is a little about me;
I have only the basic off knowlegde about how too be eco friendly, but more then most about how too tune engines for power. and thats often the opposite off the green side.
My passion goes too all motorsports, and I havent been very eco friendly due that passion. Now all brances off motorsports seems to have a class for EV's.
I have been active inn snowcross for 11 years and done fairly good inn my part off the world.

My dream is to push forward my sport, and make a electric snowmobile thats competetive against normal gas driven ones. I hope i can get some help with it, im completely stuck alone.

mvh Kato

Welcome to EM, snowpro

The knowledge here is piling up, but feel free to use it, and then tell us about it! If you've searched for something but didn't find it, feel free to ask, usually someone will help.

If you know how to tune engines for power, then maybe you could also tune them for fuel efficiency? What we are after is more torque at low rpms, even if max power/rpm/speed is sacrificed.

This site has some of the smartest people you'll ever meet. If the battery technology can get sorted so you can have a light pack, doing what you are talking about is more than possible.

We have lots of people here that like the speed and the fury ( me definitely being one of them ), and if you need anything, don't be afraid to ask.
