First test drive with the $2009 AWD Fiero. The video shows the car in electric only mode, it's so quiet that you can't even hear the motor over the road noise from the nearby street! This was the first time the new suspension has been driven on as well.
Here's a link to the build thread:
$2009 AWD Hybrid Fiero - How it works
This is a run through what it takes to drive the AWD hybrid Fiero and how
to drive it in different modes. I built this car for the Grassroots
Motorsports $2009 challenge, with a total investment of about $1800.

WORLDS FASTEST street legal ELECTRIC CAR

Worlds fastest street legal ELECTRIC CAR 1972 Datsun 1200 Whtie Zombie.
This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric
power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all
electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less
Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered

Drama at the 2008 Fiero Reunion
There were many stories at the 2008 Fiero Reunion at the Marriott
Centerpoint in Pontiac, Michigan. Here are two. The parking space standoff
ended peacefully; they settled it like gentlemen; we would expect no less
of Fiero owners. Now, those Corvette, Solstice, Miata and Viper
ruffians.... well, you know THEM;-)
Ford SHO mid engine RWD in a Fiero Redneck dune buggy
Initial Startup, running in the parking lot by my shop. A few donuts, a few
drifts and some straight line runs. A piss poor attempt to laying a patch!
My friends and I have spent over 400 hours building this car. It is caged
with race seats and harness belts. I plated the chassis and completely
rebuilt the back end of the frame to suit my driving needs! I used the
subframe from the Taurus SHO and modified it to fit the Fiero. I also
plated the subframe and added a 1/2" thick aluminum skidplate! This baby is
built to drive the piss out of it! :D
It will be interesting when I start running exotic blends of fuel, as I am
only starting off with some 87 Octane fuel to start with here. More to come
I have an MTX and a auto Tranny I am willing to sell!

Fiero electric motor transaxle first test
This is a major milestone in my 1986 Pontiac Fiero electric car conversion
project. After numerous delays getting the correct adapting hardware for
the new motor to the old transaxle, we finally mounted the clutch and motor
assembly onto the transaxle and frame of the car. With everything in place,
I applied a regular 12 car battery to the motor and amazingly, it ran
without a hitch! See my website (www.roboticmayhem.com) for more
information on this project.
50 MPH 8000W AWD Electric Offroad Mountain Bike First Drive
Be sure to follow us:
Dual motor e-bike reaching very fast speed of 47-48 mph in minimal space.
Bicycle as seen is running at 5600W with 2WD. This bike does come with the
option of running at 8000W or 5600W. We chose 5600W because we felt 8000W
is not needed and just spins the tires needlessly and also puts added
stress on components. The pull is quite amazing on this thing. This
particular video is the first impressions of our first ride. The space we
ran it is just slightly downhill but also around a bend so there is less
than 350 feet to really get on the throttle. Later testing on flat ground
yielded 50 MPH on GPS and Radar! Total system weight ready to ride is only
65 lbs! (29.5 kg!)
8000w kit reaching fast speeds with amazing hill climbing
