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.





ELECTRIC CAR - Part 1
http://tinyurl.com/electric2-car It isn't really a complicated process to do an electric car conversion, but you will need to obtain certain specialized parts. You will need: an electric motor, deep cycle batteries, a controller, a battery charger, an adaptor kit, and various other small parts. But first, you are going to need a vehicle that you can do your electric car conversion with. Any vehicle can be used for this project, but some work better than others. Heading the list are small cars and trucks, as they are light and strong. Your first consideration as shown in the detailed plans is to find the lightest vehicle that will still do the job of hauling you and whatever cargo you carry around. Next, you will want a large DC motor that will produce power for your electric car. The larger the motor, the more power your electric car will have. Don't worry that it will be slow either. Many people have the wrong impression of electric cars; they accelerate as fast as any vehicle on the road and travel at least 50 mph. What about batteries? You will need to locate about 16-20 deep cycle batteries for your car as well. The plans outline sources of batteries, even free batteries that you can find with a little effort. The same source will probably have free DC motors too. It's just a matter of asking. Why do you need this many batteries? In order to achieve a range of up to 100 miles on a single charge. A controller is needed to fix the amount of current flowing from the batteries to the motor which determines how fast you go. The controller is connected to your old gas pedal linkage for smooth control of the vehicle. In order to charge your batteries between trips, you will need an on-board battery charger. That way you can just plug it into any common AC circuit and get charged up again. Doesn't this sound like fun? Isn't it time you got started on your own conversion 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)





Electric Starion EV - Electric Car Conversion - Part 3
Welcome to the third installment. It's taken a bit of preparation time, which is essential rather than diving in to find something we've done is not quite right - both Nathan and I have been guilty in the past of making stuff only to discover a better way of doing it. But parts availability has been the biggest issue; delivery time has been long delayed for many reasons too complicated to discuss here. In this video we re-assess engine bay mounting; most of the battery racks are welded up now and the battery management has arrived (except the master unit, d'oh!). We discuss battery management, the most efficient use of space in the engine bay, as well as the AC motor we received that will drive the air-con/power steering. (btw, the AC motor and BMS come from www.bev.com.au where they are custom-made). Also an older previously unused segment stripped in about removing weight, as this is crucial in gaining mileage. Oh, and a mention of power cabling which we will try to get through some of the sub-frame rather than running under the vehicle or lumping under the carpet (as the power cable sits inside a plastic flex conduit roughly an inch diameter), so long as it's legal which we'll check with someone who knows (guessing it's something like 600mm distance between u-clamp affixing). The Zivan will sit in trunk/hatch area to the left near the charging 'fuel' port; not sure about tire placement yet, but it looks like we'll keep our back seat which is good thing (and did you know that there is an under-seat sub-frame area roughly two inches high? Hmmm... possibilities....). As for the battery tank at rear, we're looking at ducting hot air from it using PC fans and 'Exhaust' steel piping. It'd be nice to get them through the side vent follies on the pillars, but this would mean a lot of work (they'd probably be part-exposed in the interior, angled down rather like roll-cage bars). Overall I would have loved to have progressed a bit more than we have but there have been circumstances beyond our control and parts supplies have been an issue all the way along - which in a sense is a good thing so we don't rush too-obvious solutions that would otherwise cost in time/energy to undo (in a circumlocutory sort-of way ;-) ). I'd like to thank Christina for her camera work during the making of these videos, shot on a two-year old Nokia N93 still going strong, as well as Linda for filming the air-con motor, without them I'd be stuffed for making videos about this car.





Electric Starion - Electric Car Conversion - Part 2
It's been a long wait, but the Thundersky lithium 144v 160Ah batteries finally arrived! Now we have to set about determining the best configuration for the batteries in the engine bay and rear tank using info from convertyourgasguzzler.com. A bit annoying the BMS modules haven't arrived yet as a confirmation measurement of the height of these would help in determining the battery rack height dimension. We could arrange the engine bay battery racks as a typical square-finish configuration, or perhaps angled around the motor for a cool effect, and then as Nathan suggests place plastic clear Perspex sheets over the top for a neat finish, and tinted perspex surrounding the Curtis terminals too perhaps - we want a neat engine bay! Nathan mentioned someone who had Thunderskies mounted on their edges (sides) but the efficiency was greatly deteriorated and batteries leaked! I don't know if those were the LiCoO2 (we're using LiFePO4), either way we'll install close to vertical anyway and a crude animation is included to show possible mounting. Another 'fun' part in this video was removing the dash so we could access the ventilation system box and put in the heater core (I know, could have gone with a water micro boiler unit but budget is getting tight; maybe later); biggish job but not too hard for two people working on it (Stephanie did it once, alone, and it was a pig of a job she said). I'll help Nathan get it back together later as he moves on to the charging setup and we'll the need the BMS master unit as well (which also hasn't arrived yet). The Curtis will have a water cooling block underneath where all the FETs are positioned inside (and block secured tight with thermal compound between surfaces) and maybe a fan box on top, if there is room, but the water cooler alone should help keep the thing under 75 degrees C (a Zilla would be better; can't get our hands on one for now and they're expensive). The very crude animation of possible engine bay layout will probably change as we decide the best location for stuff (pwr steer/air con drive components and compressor, pump motor, hoses etc) and final battery count front and back. The reservoir for water block coolant may stay in its original place if the hose length is not too long to be impractical. Slowly but surely we are getting somewhere now. Sorry about the shaky camera, some of us have been sick with flu. Sorry about the boobies too, but hot fiddling with cars ;-)

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.

Eco Steve Home Made 1984 Pontiac Fiero Electric Vehicle Conversion
1984 Pontiac Fiero Electric Vehicle Conversion / From start to finish with a ride along. In this video you will see how easy it is to convert a gas car to electric in your driveway with no garage and really no special tools. I did have a coupler made from a machinist because this part has to be pretty balanced as it can spin on the motor about 5000 rpm's. The coupler cost about $600 but compared to me hacking in the backyard +/- worth the money. The car cost $300, coupler $600,and the used forklift parts and batteries free (salvaged). Not bad for around $1000!
