It runs on 12, 12 volt Trojan deep cycle lead acid batteries. Powered by a 9.1 in. dia. Advanced DC motor with a 500 amp Curtis controller. Part 2 and 3 will be coming soon. GO ELECTRIC!
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.

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

video documentation of the process along with a few test drives. It runs on
12, 12 volt Trojan deep cycle lead acid batteries. Powered by a 9.1 in.
dia. Advanced DC motor with a 500 amp Curtis controller. About $6,000 for
EV components not including: car, tools, steel brackets for battery box,
12V wiring supplies, new break pads. Tested top speed: 70 mph. Though this
was limited by the road. Preliminary range test: 30 miles without fully
conditioned batteries. GO ELECTRIC!

Electric Starion - Electric Car Conversion - Part 1
Three years ago I knew nothing about cars nor cared for them much, until
Stephanie Walsh got me interested in Starions. Her ex said back then, 'You
gotta know about cars or some mechanics will rip you off'. Sadly, Stephanie
passed away in 2007. I have decided to do an electric car project in her
honour, as she was a wiz at electronics and taught me much in that area
also. Together with Nathan Bolton we are now converting my rare Starion to
full electric drive. This is the first video of a series I intend to do
following the conversion of my car. We now have a Kostov 10.7 inch electric
motor that used to be in an electric bus for the Sydney Olympics. I've got
lithiums on the ship from China, a Curtis controller and other bits and
pieces coming for the air-con, power steering etc. The car has been a
headache in some ways, getting it up to spec, re-spraying in places etc but
overall it should look good when done and will comply with local laws for
on-road every day use. This video covers engine mounting estimations,
rear-battery compartment construction, and Nathan's teaching me to weld
(and as someone commented, "You had better hide your boobs or sparks will
fly' ;-P ). The adaptor plate for the gear box has already come back from
the machinist and in this video we drop the motor in and temporarily
position it to get a rough estimation of available space - there should be
plenty for the controller and batteries, along with a home-designed cooling
block for the controller.
