On the controller...

I'm not sold on an AC motor, yet. Prefer series wound DC.

Know it is more expensive, but has better low end torque characteristics.

Instead of transistors, I'd use Power MosFETs (background is with SCRs up to 1.5K amps each).

Instead of a PC, a dedicated controller will both smaller and cheaper (too much as to be tossed out on a PC based system).

Plus should be a real time OS.

The heart of the system will be the controller.

Forced fed alcohol would be great and easy enough with the kits available today.
