Advanced DC 9" motor in Chevy S10, running test on one 12V battery. Insurance company says they'll insure the truck as any other car would be! The final price of the trucks conversion required a line of credit on the house mortgage, went with $9000 worth of lithium batteries. Way better than the lead acid ones at a third of the weight, and last alot longer, four years so far (as of Apr 2013)

and evidently shorting out the terminals helped the battery a lot.

Behind the scenes of building an electric car - The journey
Follow us on a journey of the successes and dissapointments that were
Team Swinburne Electric 2010, AKA tse_10, was the first year a group of
Swinburne engineering students endevoured to develop and build an Electric
Vehicle for the Formula SAE competition. The team hit trouble when they
blew up their motor controller, just over a week before the competition.
The team then borrowed another motor controller which also ended up
blowing. The team then borrowed ANOTHER motor controller, to which they had
some success, until the night before the competition, when it also blew up.
In total the team blew up 3x $4,000 controllers, 6 times (after repairs).
It is thought that the motor is faulty and is causing the issues.

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.
