Cool! Ah, the price of fame...

You say you're taking an amp-hour capacity hit from Herr Peukert, because you're running a higher current draw. Do you think you'll actually be drawing more amperage per battery than the previous car? Which reminds me: did you ever do a test to see what brush timing got you the best mileage? I remember you had to do some brush work to get the motor running in the correct direction, then did some end cap work later to get timing correct...or something like that... I'm guessing there will be some of us in the future that end up addressing that same question.

It sounds like that LED battery pack monitor is going to get a workout, for sure!

Ouch! I see my "90 day average" is down. My "best tank" has timed out. Looks like time to try another one... :-)
