$2009 AWD Hybrid Fiero - First test drive!

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: http://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/grm/west-coast-2009-challenger-awd-fiero-hybrid/10519/page4/

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.

WORLDS FASTEST street legal ELECTRIC CAR
SUBSCRIBE! Learn about EV technology: http://www.electric-vehiclenews.com/ 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 than 7%. 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 car. Datsun 1200 EV Specs: - Motor - Hi Torque Electric 'Siamese 8' Series Wound DC Dual Armature 8 inch - Controller - Zilla Z2K EHV 2000 Amp - Battery - 60x 16 Ah Hawker Enersys 'Genesis' Lead-Acid 360 Volts - Final Drive ratio - 4.11 : 1 - Weight - 2,450 Pounds (1,113 Kilograms)





Dual Motor Electric Vehicle Drivetrain With Powerglide 2 Speed Transmission Walkthrough by EV West
Here's a brief 10 minute video that gives a nice overview of the EV West 2 speed Powerglide transmission that runs without a torque converter direct drive to 2 coupled Warp 11 motors. Depending on the voltage and current, these twin motors can put out well over 1000 lb/ft of torque, and 600+ horsepower. We used this motor and transmission combination to power our BMW M3 to the summit of Pikes Peak in 2012 setting an all time record for street legal electric cars. The strength and reliability of this system is key. For more information regarding this bolt in drive train, please visit http://evwest.com for the latest updates.





World's Fastest Fiero? 383 Stroker V-8 Supercharged with Performance Cam, Headers, Tuned, Etc.
http://LamboReplicaForSale.com | 500+ horsepower, supercharged 383 Stroker V8 Pontiac Fiero monster! I picked up this new "toy" on Ebay for $4,000. The guy that sold it to me warned me that it is "dangerously fast." After driving it one time, I agree. This car is scary to drive! I'm planning to build a Lamborghini replica using this as the donor. It may be the fastest Lambo





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;-)





Pontiac Fiero NHTSA Frontal Crash Test
This is one of the original crash test videos for the Pontiac Fiero. In this video, dummies were restrained with the factory seatbelts. "Fieros are deathtraps!" Not hardly...... Many people think that the Pontiac Fiero is an unsafe vehicle due to its small size. It turns out that the Fiero was the safest vehicle ever tested by the NHTSA without airbags. It was the second safest vehicle on the road in 1985, second to the Volvo DL Wagon. The DL had airbags. Even by today's standards, the Fiero still rivals many newer vehicles on the road today. The methods of testing are exactly the same in 2010 as they were back in 1979 when NHTSA began testing cars. Cars are tested by impacting a solid barrier at 35 MPH. The Fiero received a 5 star crash rating for both driver and passenger. A 5-star rating means a 10% or lower chance of serious injury. So 5-star means the same now as it meant 25 years ago. Here are a few comparisons: 1984 Pontiac Fiero Driver ***** Passenger ***** Rollover***** Head Injury Criterion: 356.5/308.6 Chest Deceleration (G): 30.9/29.9 Femur Load 840/800 800/740 2003 Cadillac Deville Driver * Passenger *** Rollover **** Head Injury Criterion: 826/507 Chest Deceleration (G): 75/58 Femur Load: 825/1297 875/848 2007 Buick Lacrosse Driver ***** Passenger ***** Rollover **** Head Injury Criterion: 374/259 Chest Deceleration (G): 43/42 Femur Load: 1099/1112 909/405 2009 Ford Focus Driver ***** Passenger ***** Rollover **** Head Injury Criterion: 521/389 Chest Deceleration (G): 40/40 Femur Load: 1133/1652 1138/968 As you can see, the 1980s Pontiac is still one of the safer cars on the road today. The Fiero is as good as or better than many of today's vehicles that have airbags. The Fiero is also very stable. The Fiero received a Static Stability Factor, or Rollover Resistance rating, of 1.47. This equates to a 5-star rollover rating. Even if you are unfortunate enough to get into a rollover accident, the Fiero excels in safety once again with its incredibly strong roof structure. According to the NHTSA, the Fiero was tested by inverted drop and roof crush testing. In the inverted drop test, the Fiero, along with cars like the Ford F150 and Plymouth Laser were turned over and dropped on their roofs. The Fiero scored best with 8.3 cm crush on the a-pillar and 3.8 cm on the B-pillar. The Ford F-150 had the worst rating with 42.5cm crush on a-pillar and 40.6cm on the B-pillar. The Plymouth Laser actually had a slightly better rating than Fiero for B pillar with 3.2cm crush. In another publication, NHTSA tested cars roofs by crushing them with a steel plate and hydraulic ram. In the example given, the Chevrolet S10 had the worst rating with 5320 lbs roof strength, while the Fiero has the highest rating with 9909 lbs of roof strength. This equates to 3.53 roof strength to weight ratio, complying with even the most recent roof strength requirement of 3.00:1 strength ratio. It is kind of funny how the Pontiac Fiero is still meeting many of the most modern crash test requirements without even frontal airbags..... Now for Death rate. Death rate is a number given to cars to reflect the likelihood of death in any particular vehicle. The Fiero, along with Camaros and Firebirds, happen to have a very high death rate. A high death rate doesn't mean the car is unsafe, it just means that this type of car is going to be driven faster and more recklessly, increasing the chance of an accident, which in turn, increases the chance of serious injury or death. If you hit a concrete wall at 80MPH with no seatbelts on, I don't care what car you are in, you will be killed. The human body just simply cannot take that kind of G load and people need to stop driving like idiots. Please comment. I would like to see your reaction to this and hear some of your crash stories. Please drive responsibly. Thanks GammaRays134 SOURCES Video courtesy of NHTSA, NCAP and Calspan Crash Testing Center.

Coleworx Riddler Rollover on Stairway - Crusher Ridge
http://www.bustedknucklefilms.com/news/crusher-ridge-race/ The Riddler buggy rolls after some wide open assaults on Stairway at Crusher Ridge Offroad Park in Hartselle, Alabama. This buggy looked brand new before the roll! I guess they cant stay pretty forever. Props to the owner for beating on such a nice looking Buggy. All it needs is a hood, fender, and some paint and good as new.





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! lol 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 in time.... I have an MTX and a auto Tranny I am willing to sell!
