KINETIC ENERGY RECOVERY SYSTEM. In a nut shell there storing excess engery and using it in several ways.Last year a mechanic was killed by a super capacitor discharge based KERS. The other danger is mass quanitys of fuel on board with the electrial discharge a huge fire is possible.You should see it at the 12 ours of sebring this year Most of the KERS systems are mounted in the bell housing with a gear drive connected to the transmission input shaft.

I ran a kers system on the neon back in 2005. nobody noticed that the transmission had what looked like two starters bolted to it, one on each side. of course one of them was the electric assist drive motor. it was with this system installed that I was able to hold off oldtimers car and bring the neon home to a 4th place finnish in the only TPS race I ran that year.
