My pack has been behaving fine. I did have some problems with the bmw600hs battery monitor but that's an instrumentation issue. As far as i understand the S series (energy) headways they are 5C continuous and 10C burst (10 sec). I rarely run over 400amps for a few seconds on accelerations. Cruising is at 100amps or less. About 1.5C.The advantage of the compound motor being that I can increase shunt current to increase torque as opposed to needing increased armature current.

To get a bit more back on topic , the liquid cooled controller is working great. Temp barely raises above ambient.The main problem now being that I seem to be collecting dead bugs in the radiator

Now, Cole, when you shift the gear and that little needle on the ammeter goes into the red and reads 2000 Amps, that's bad.
