February Program,  February 16, 2010
All-Electric Drive-Train Saturn Sky Conversion AMP™ Advanced Mechanical Products, Inc.
by Tim Wieck, Chief Engineer

ATTENTION: This luncheon is canceled for Feb. 16 and has been rescheduled for Thursday Feb. 18. Check the RESC website for other important rescheduling details.

On October 19th, 2009, AMP was selected by the Progressive Insurance Automotive X PRIZE to be included in the 43 Qualified Teams who received passing scores from the Design Judges. The process evaluated 97 registered entries and reduced the field by more than half. The remaining teams will bring a total of 53 vehicles (28 Mainstream and 25 Alternative Class) into the next stage of the competition. Qualified Teams have passed two hurdles – the Registration process and Design Judging. The next phase of the competition is the technical qualifiers, which begin in Spring, 2010.

AMP Inc. has developed a one of a kind all electric high performance drive train for the installation into the Saturn Sky and Pontiac Solstice vehicles. The end product is an all Electric Vehicle that does not sacrifice the handling and “feel” of a conventional ICE sports car. The AMP power train delivers 150 miles per charge, and a complete “fill up” cost about the same as a gallon of gas. The converted Sky has a top speed of 90mph and will accelerate from zero to sixty mph in under 6 seconds.

Mr. Wieck has hands-on engineering experience in the Aerospace, Commercial and Automotive industries and holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Portland, and has been a registered engineer since 1993.
