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.

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.

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

HUGE Fiero Compilation , 250+ Pics
*Guys, Thanks so much for the 50,000 views! Please leave comments if you
want, I try to answer all the ones I can.
I collected all these photos for myself when I had my Fiero because each
picture inspired me in some way, never thought putting them in a slide show
would get people watching. If you know anyone with a Fiero, lead them here
so they can get some inspiration/ideas about theirs too.

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

Fiero 3800sc Walk Around and Start!
Hi so this is my near finished Fiero SE (Lola) she's got 49k miles, and a
very low miliage 3800sc swap in it. I did all the work myself from the
wealth of info and great support from "Pennocks Fiero Forum" www.fiero.nl.
she runs great, and is actually pretty scary when you hammer the throttle!
More vids to come, thanks!
