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.

Kaylor Motor Adaptor Electric Car Kit. This is installed in a 69 VW Ghia.
We are testing a modern controller to power the old Starter/Generator
motors for these Kits. These conversion kits were specifically built for
the old VW platform. They work great but work best on the old fiberglass
80+ mph Electric Truck Conversion Part 1

100% electric vehicle. This is a freeway capable conversion kit with
speeds of 80+ mph. Part 1 shows all of the steps taken to remove old and
install new components.
Kaylor Kit Electric Motor Demo
This is a video of our demo flick for our Kaylor Electric Conversion Kit
for the older VW platform. This is an older style Starter/Generator
Military Shunt DC motor with a custom made adaptor plate and flywheel from
Kaylor Energy Systems. These are no longer being made but can still be
found. We are testing a modern PWM electronic controller specifically
designed to run these special motor. They are able to do regen too. This
motor can push a stock steel bodied VW Ghia to 62 mph with 12 6 volt
batteries. It is a 72 volt system. It works perfect. Perfect for a nice fun
all electric buggy. Or Bug or Ghia.
Renault Twizy, a funny, but useful electric car.
A quick introduction to the Twizy, a electric car by Renault. It looks
funny, but it is a nice design in easiness in use and driving.
Top speed 85 km/h
Range 80 km (if riding properly)
VERY tight turns (me happy)
VERY small to park (me happy)
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.
