Pretty badass! Wonder how long itll take to adapt to other vehicles!??

By replacing the stock flywheel and starter with a 175-horsepower flywheel electric motor, Vonnen can add a ton of horsepower without affecting engine emissions. This extra boost in power can take your base Boxster from a boulevard cruiser to a speed demon, or your GT3 from a speed demon to a supercar.

Right just think you could double the HP of a BRZ or FRS with that.

And yes I know its expensive but IMO this is where performance mods are headed. Thay being said like any other new technology eventually the cost of entry will come down.

Whats makes me excited is to think of all the applicatuons this would be great for!

That's too much work.

What I have always envisioned is replacing the rear wheel drums/rotors with motors and regenerative braking assemblies.

Unbolt the whole hub, throw out. Bolt in new electric motor hub, go like hell.
