“Green Envy” is the successor of the KillaJoule, and it is being built to become the world’s fastest motorcycle. Full stop! Just like the KillaJoule, it is being built by me (Eva Hakansson), my husband Bill Dubé, and a team of volunteers. Bill and I are both mechanical engineers; I have a PhD in mechanical… Continue reading WHAT IS GREEN ENVY?

We can highly recommend their products and services. Do you want to join this winning team and help us make history and get your name on… Continue reading PARTNERS & SUPPORTERS
How does it feel setting a record?
“How does it feel running for a speed record?” That the second most common question I receive. The most common is “How fast is it?”. The speed question is easy to answer, the other question is much more difficult. The drive itself is really short, just a few minutes, but can be quite an experience.… Continue reading How does it feel setting a record?
RE-INVENTING THE WHEEL!
The weakest link in all wheel-driven speed record attempts is a surprising and obscure detail – tires! Tires can be one of the main points of failure on all vehicles, but are specifically troublesome on extremely high speed, wheel-driven vehicles. Therefore, we are literally re-inventing the wheel for Green Envy! The very fastest cars are… Continue reading RE-INVENTING THE WHEEL!
3D PRINTED PARTS
Several of the parts on the KillaJoule are 3D printed, and even more of them will be 3D printed on Green Envy. The largest 3D printed part on the KillaJoule is the aerodynamic skin for the sidecar. You can read more about it below. We are also experimenting with a wheel with 3D printed rubber… Continue reading 3D PRINTED PARTS
RACING AND THE ENVIRONMENT
I often gets questions like this one: “This racing seems very wasteful with travel, components etc. How can you promote low emission vehicles when you waste this much energy?” Here is my answer: You are pointing out a difficult balance and that it sometimes takes a little bit of “wasting” to generate much bigger savings.… Continue reading RACING AND THE ENVIRONMENT
HEALTH & SAFETY
Safety equipment and safe work practices Making things can be dangerous, that’s why you need to always consider appropriate Health & Safety principles. The Health & Safety laws varies from country to country, but the minimum requirements are to wear the proper personal safety equipment and to use safe work practices. This includes not working… Continue reading HEALTH & SAFETY
