Parallel Hybrid 8th Truck Concept

1057

In recent months a group of students at the University of Kansas, meeting under the name of Team Slayer, have began work on creating an more environmentally friendly car which has resulted in a very interesting project. They have built a hybrid 8th scale radio controlled car which is powered by an electric motor as well as a combustion engine. Starting from a buggy (Exceed-RC Razor 1/8 ) the American students have created a remarkable machine which lets you use an electric motor as well as an internal combustion engine (which would in future use biodiesel instead of the mixture). Further details can be found here.
