400 amp controller installed. Here's how it looks...

0-50 km/h in ...

36 seconds with the old 225 A controller
25 seconds with 300 A
21 seconds with 400 A

A lot of the total time has to do with technique. I just started out in 2nd gear with the 400A controller since it won't even pull 400A from a stop in 1st.

Also it's quite a bit cooler today, and the car wasn't limbered up.

Didn't do a top speed run.
