My 1986 Pontiac Fiero 2.5l 0-100 MPH
5/31/2009 Video of my 1986 Pontiac Fiero 2.5L 3 Speed Automatic. Going 0-100 Was not trying to do a time attack, just wanted to see how fast I could go. Soon as I got to 100, I was well into the red RPMs, so I stopped. Honestly, I think the car could go to 120, or 125, I didnt have the gas pedal down all the way. With a 5 speed standard, this car could go way faster.
LS4 Fiero startup
Just a quick video to hear the car start, drive, and power steering effort.
1988 Pontiac Fiero Formula Walkaround [HD]
I have nothing new so here's a video of my so-called "clunker" with the new camcorder.
Currently has a small vacuum leak due to a rotted EGR tube gasket so it sets off a Code 32; but it is still drivable. New gasket came today and will fix next week.
88 Fiero GT AT Test Drive to 100 MPH
Slow run up to 100 mph in an 88 stock 2.8 liter V6 Fiero GT to test its automatic transmission and stability after recent repair and brake mods.The car shifts very quickly for an AT even though I did not push it very hard with this test drive just in case anything decided to let loose.
The new drilled and slotted alloy brake rotors and ceramic brake pads are a huge improvement over OEM. Braking stability and handling is shown by how little correction in the steering wheel was needed during the entire test. This car is now a "Keeper" and a lot of fun to drive as an everyday driver.
'85 Fiero GT Stock with 200+K
Video of my 85 Fiero GT. Engine is completely stock and has a little over 205,000 miles on it. Repairs and upgrades I've done incude stage 2 Beck and Arnly Clutch, 2nd generation stock Fiero clutch hydraulics (versus the sub par 1st gen which it had), shortened shifter to 3 inches, KYB suspension all around, 17" rims with Nexen high performance tires, magnecore 8mm ignition wires, new distrubuter, platinum spark plugs, and new gaskets throughout. Not a huge chunk of rubber, but pretty impressive for a stock 2.8 with 200K and really grabby tires. The red one is my father's stock 86 Fiero GT 5 speed. Link to his vid:

Homemade gokart (gocart) with Harbor Freight 2.5 hp engine 79cc
I just finished up with this homemade gokart with a harbor freight 2.5hp engine. We have a small backyard and my boys have never driven one before so I was trying to have it go around lawn mower speed. I'd say it probably goes 10mph when topped out. The governer is removed and it will wind out with me on it to over 4500 rpm (I have a tiny tach). I used a 12 tooth clutch and then took a spare jackshaft sprocket and welded it to a 40 tooth axle gear which is on the jackshaft. Then it goes to a 13 tooth sprocket and then to a 60 tooth. Frame is welded out of 1" tubing from local hardware stores. It was very tricky because of the thin tubing and avoiding blowing through the metal with the welder. This engine is capable of much faster speed with different gearing however my family has a yard with some hills and the boys are cautious about putting the pedal to the metal so the low gearing works fine. It did take me several head scratches to figure out why the engine kept shutting down and then figured out it had a low oil cutoff that was triggered when I was cutting the corners. I actually built two karts in two weeks. First one was a 1.5 feet longer which was great for adults but even with the adjustable seat the boys were having a hard time pushing the gas all the way down.
The 60T sproket was swapped for a 40T sprocket on the main axle for additional ground clearance. The current drive is a 12T clutch to a 40T on the jackshaft outputing to a 11T and then to a 40T on the axle sprocket. This gives a final drive ratio of approx 7:1. I clocked it with my gps at 12-13mph downhill and 11-12mph uphill yesterday with my 215lbs on it. Climbed some fairly good hills with no problems. We hooked a radio flyer wagon to it and I pulled my 11 year old son and 4 year old daughter in it at the same time (an extra 110lbs) with no problems.
