If possible, could you send me some more detailed specs on all of these cars? Potentially looking to buy a new car. Thanks so much, and hopefully this will work out.

What are the speeds on these for an hour?

Well, it is going to depend on the track, weather etc. Looking at a perfect conditions, on a 5-mile oval it is going to be nearly 70 for the hour on the newer cars. Mid to low 60's for the pink one. PIR it is low 60's for the newer, mid 50's for the older. A parking lot track is entirely unpredictable since they are so versatile.

Shannon,
I spoke to your Dad the other day about the pink #40 car. I our Team Captain Nick has contacted y'all as well. We would love to look at the car in person but a trip from Pensacola, Florida to Portland is out of the question. Can we get some specifics about the car such as type of motor, controller, breaking system. Is that car ready right now? We're working hard to get that car but we also need more details.

Shannon... thanks a bunch for all your help. The purchase of the pink #40 to shipping it all the way to Florida took a lot of logistics. In five days we won two High School Divisions, two Overall Winner, and set two track records. At our last event so many teams wanted to see a Dave Cloud car... well they did from behind.

Here is a video shot that day. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GGZVJ5rsLY

I'm glad others across the country are seeing what we have to face here in the NW. Cloud cars are the fastest cars on long tracks we have seen. Over the last few years they are nearly unbeatable on short tracks as well. Be glad you have not had to race them for the last 20 years!!!

We sort of kept this car on the low down and as a secret. One race at Barber Motorsports Complex in Birmingham, Alabama gave our secret up. Still not sure what makes the car so dang fast but you can beat we'll take that technology and apply it toward our other car. Maybe cause we baked batteries at 125 degrees for ten hours while charging.

Hi Joel,

Did you get any information about the effect of heating the batteries on cycle life?

If I had some good data would I share that with you Cliff? no Sure I would but I really don't. Nick handled so much with the batteries. The oven we used and took to both races is a small convection oven used in the shop for heating plastics. Those batteries baked a good 18 hours at 125 degrees. I really think you can shove more amps into each battery giving you that little extra you may need. I'll have to go look but by the end of the race at Five Flags we still had enough juice for a few more laps. That car also has heating strips built in under the batteries so between races just pull the back shell off and plug it in.

The green is actually sold. I believe the blue one is in the process as being sold too. Still have many parts and molds if you are interested in anything else.

Shannon,
Does that mean you may not have a car to drive at PIR?

She does have the purple car to drive, keep that in mind. Or unless that one got sold too but I seriously don't think that happened.

Oh, and the white car could be there for the long track.

Deal! For now anyway. Until I get a steady job then maybe I'll travel over to where you are and race the cars on the Gulf coast.

Hello, I tried calling the number you had listed, 425-788-9293 and it said it was disconnected.

 

I am new to the electrathon info and wanted to pick your dads brain.

 

Thanks, Ed
