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 sidecar skin

Under the skin – KillaJoule front end and suspension
Deep into the design: Front end and steering I often say that KillaJoule is a “giant cordless drill with wheels”. What I refer to is of course that it is battery powered, but also that it is very simple at a conceptual level. Just like a cordless drill, it has a battery, motor, a throttle,… Continue reading Under the skin – KillaJoule front end and suspension

UNDER THE SKIN
I often say that KillaJoule is a “giant cordless drill with wheels”. What I refer to is of course that it is battery powered, but also that it is very simple at a conceptual level. Just like a cordless drill, it has a battery, motor, a throttle, and a bit of electronics in-between. And wheels.… Continue reading UNDER THE SKIN
