EVControls T-1 and T-1C now available

After several thousand miles of on road testing, combined with track and dyno testing, we are now ready to offer the controller we have developed for the Tesla drive unit for sale. See the product pages for details on the two models we are offering.

Our test vehicle (FF 818, which has been in daily use on the street with this controller since the summer of 2016) has run as quick as 10.1 in the quarter mile and currently produces 470WHP with Chevy volt battery packs. As far as we know this is the quarter mile record for a Tesla powered vehicle.

We continue to add features to the controller, and with field upgradeable firmware these updates will be available to any existing customers.






EV Controls 818 runs 10.1 second quarter mile.

On October 2 2016, we took our Tesla powered 818 to the local quarter mile track for some testing.

This car is our test vehicle for the controller we are developing that is now available. The car has a stock Tesla P85 drive unit and two Chevy Volt battery packs installed.

We managed an impressive 10.1 second quarter mile time at 126 mph. This trap speed was limited by gearing.

Tesla powered 818 breaks into the 10’s

We went back to the track to test our 818 against a P85D, this time with drag radials.

The car had a Tesla S-85 drive unit installed, and two chevy volt battery packs.

We managed to break into the 10’s this time out, check out the video below.

This car is equipped with the controller we are developing for the Tesla drive unit.
