thanks so much Dr. Delman for this experience.

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.
DMC's New Electric Delorean -- /TUNED
Matt has had bad luck with modified Deloreans. But when he was invited by
DMC President Stephen Wynne to DMC headquarters in Houston, he couldn't
resist. In addition to seeing the massive stockpile of Delorean parts, Matt
gets to test their new prototype fully-electric Delorean.
Video montage chronicles the restoration/buildup of "Project Delorean".
This Delorean goes from a neglected, badly deteriorated example to a
wide-body, twin-turbo, award winner.
The World's Fastest DeLorean - /TUNED
What happens when you throw a very large and power Grand National motor
into a 30 year old legend like the DeLorean? Thats what Matt Farah finds
out on this week's episode of TUNED
Twin Turbo Delorean - Initial Startup
Initial startup after about two months of custom turbo fabrication and installation. Not real
exciting. It starts and idles, stalls, but it runs. Lots of me running
around checking for leaks. Later found the O2 sensor wasn't working at the
time. I'll post another video after some tuning.
Full Electric Car Home Conversion - 1988 Pontiac Fiero Part 1
The process of converting my Pontiac Fiero to 144 volt electric car. Full
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. Part 2 and 3 will
be coming soon. GO ELECTRIC!
Electric De Lorean
The first electric De lorean ever converted in Italy by Eve, electro
vehicles Europe. The collaboration of Wired Italia Enel and Samsung
together with Electro vehicels europe allow this car to be on the road
Ford's Electric Vehicle Technology - Plug In Hybrids - Part 2
Plug-in Hybrid Basics
The plug-in hybrid provides maximum fuel efficiency by pairing a unique
high-voltage battery and electric motor with a gasoline engine. This means
the gasoline engine does not have to run all the time. That's better for
gas mileage. And better for the planet. The plug-in capability allows you
to charge the battery using either a 120-volt or a 240-volt outlet upgraded
with electric vehicle supply equipment. By doing so, you extend the
distance this vehicle can travel in all-electric mode. Its high-voltage
lithium-ion battery provides enough power to operate in all-electric mode
for short commutes. The plug-in hybrid also features a Regenerative Braking
System, which enables it to capture braking energy and store it for later
-POWERED by: Gasoline engine and high-voltage battery
-ELECTRICAL CONNECTION: Though not absolutely necessary, plugging in will
provide optimal performance
-FUEL: Will operate entirely on gasoline, entirely on electricity or on a
combination of both
-BATTERY CHARGED by: The gas engine, recycled energy from braking and by
plugging into a 120-volt outlet or 240-volt outlet upgraded with electric
vehicle supply equipment
-GASOLINE ENGINE OPERATION: Powers vehicle at higher speeds, shuts off at
low speeds and when vehicle is stopped
-ELECTRIC MOTOR OPERATION: Powers vehicle at low to moderate speeds and for
