Extened Range Trailer Project
Extended Range Trailer Project is underway. It should be a simple affair
but I am sure some will have ideas to make it as complex as possible. There
will be some issues to resolve but they should be workable.

Kaylor Motor Adaptor Electric Car Kit. This is installed in a 69 VW Ghia.
We are testing a modern controller to power the old Starter/Generator
motors for these Kits. These conversion kits were specifically built for
the old VW platform. They work great but work best on the old fiberglass
E Roadster Project is now running and drivable. I am in the process of
properly bottom balancing the pack and will be adding in more cells for a
total of 60 100ah CALB SE Cells for a total of 192 volt nominal system.
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

80+ mph Electric Truck Conversion Part 1
http://www.useafuel.com - Converting a gas powered 93 Mazda pickup to a
100% electric vehicle. This is a freeway capable conversion kit with
speeds of 80+ mph. Part 1 shows all of the steps taken to remove old and
install new components.
Starter/Generator. Basic setup. When you remove the field cable the field
coil metal shoe is what becomes magnetized and that is what allows the
motor to spin without any field energy. It has great speed because there is
little holding the armature back. But has little torque. You need field
power to energize the motor properly. If the field shoes are magnetized and
you remove your power in a nut shell you have a permanent magnet motor but
the magnets really are not permanent but it acts like one. Very little
strength. But create an electro magnet and the motor now has greater
torque. With stronger magnets the higher the torque and slower the motor
per given voltage.
This is a modified SepEx motor. Modified by the manufacturer. Not your
normal SepEx motor. But very durable.

FCI Electrifying Day
October 21st 2011 will definitely remain as an electrifying day in FCI
Epernon's manufacturing site life. On this very sunny day, Epernon became
for a few hours a dedicated arena to demonstrate latest EV (Electric
More than 800 people were invited to witness the performance of the
Formulec car - embedding FCI Power.S3 connectors - on a road which has
been blocked, to allow the 4 runs of the full electric single seater.
A charge station using FCI charge plugs was unveiled with two electric
vehicles (Renault Fluence & Peugeot Ion) to demonstrate our
industrialization capabilities, giving from now on, the chance to our
customers to come to Epernon with EV cars.
