Queen's University Belfast - Electric DeLorean Project
#1
Some of you may or may not know that the students of Queen's University have set out to build an Electric DeLorean.

Well it featured tonight on the local BBC Northern Ireland News, and it is hoped the car will be on the road for October 2015.

I'm not sure replacing the front wheels with castors is a good idea. Handy for parking though I suppose.

I somehow think this poor car will end up as a DeLorean/old electric milk float hybrid........are those the rhd sidelight indicator assemblies in the front? :lol:

Yes they look like it……..

I too am worried about the castors, how on earth can you fit a decent sized brake disc behind them?

Where do you fasten the track-rod ends? Can you get good tyres only 5" in diameter ?

Questions, questions…….a good unverserty should be able to sort them out. :wink:
