Hello all,

60% finished my 1984 Fiero and are just waiting for the motor and transmission to come back from the machine shop (about a month) and are wondering if anyone had any experiance with a 72V 7.6 KW Crown motor and the possible performance, I beleave it is just above 10HP at continuous run not sure the peak. The controller I am using is a Zapi 80V 600 Amps along with 18 Deka Unigy (3 parallel x 6 series). I was also thinking of cleaning the motor and giving is a fresh paint job using brake caliper paint. Any feedback would be fantastic.

Hi eco,

Are you sure that is a series motor? I have one which looks about the same, but is 48 volt and SepEx. And did you have a bearing put in the drive end of it?

I think Crown makes a good motor. And it will likely do a good job for you. It may be a bit on the small size, especially if you have it loaded down with batteries. So watch your temperatures. Extra (like blower) ventilation may be needed if the motor gets too toasty. And are going to wire it for regen with the H2 controller?

Thank you for the reply, the machine shop are adding a bearing to the female spline end to help with keeping the load on the trans spline as light as possible, installed a rear aux blower right over where the motor and controller is bieng placed.
