RW-2x is Buckeye Current's 2014 vehicle, built on the successful chassis and powertrain of RW-2.
In June of 2014, Buckeye Current brought RW-2x to the Isle of Man for the 2014 Isle of Man TT Zero successfully defending the title as fastest collegiate team in the electric race and securing for the second year, a third place podium finish.
The major powertrain and chassis components are unchanged from last year:
|Chassis||Honda CBR1000RR - 2006|
|Motor controller||Tritium WaveSculptor 200|
|Motor||Enstroj Emrax 228HV|
|Battery cells||Advanced Electronic Energy (AEE) 40 Ah packaged prismatic|
In 2014, a complete redesign of the battery pack was undertaken. The result is a chassis with more than 10º extra lean angle, weighing about 30 lb. (14 kg) less.
A completely new datalogging and drive control system was also designed from the ground up for this year's vehicle. RW-2x constantly records over 100 unique sensor measurements, including battery cell voltages, temperature measurements, aerodynamic pressures, and more.
