I just did my first road test of my EV (92 Eagle), about 4 miles. Took it up to 50mph and still had some left.. But kind of slow to get there.. I'm only running 96 volts.. Anyway, my water cooled controller didn't even get warm.. I hit 400+ amps twice.. But my motor got too hot to hold your hand on, guess I will have to add a blower to it.. I was pushing it kind of hard, 150 to 300 amps most of the time.. I decided not to put the controller in its own box, but use one big box for all the goodies, it will have a plexy cover.. The 110 inverter in the PIC runs a .4 amp "little giant" pump in the paint can..
