RARE - Red DeLorean DMC-12 on Freeway
saw a red delorean on the freeway today. i thought it was pretty kool.
deloreans ive seen have always been metallic in color. i spotted him in the
"Golden Triangle" where the i-5 and i-805 meet in del mar, san diego ca.
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.
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
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.
Delorean Restoration Update: It Runs! (And sounds great!)
Matt gets to hear the Delorean running for the first time after rebuilding
the engine with the Stage 2 upgrades. It sounds like a 911!
**When he refers to something "sounding terrible, he means crappy iPhone
audio, not the car.
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
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.
Electric DeLorean Drag Racing an Electric Porsche
Watch how the world's fastest Electric DeLorean blows the doors of an
electric Porsche at the Power of DC meeting 2008*
*(OK so the Porsche did blow a circuit breaker half way down the track and
summarily wooped my arse after fixing it...)
