That's right Darin, I don't even have a working ammeter on the Citi yet.

You all might want to check my acceleration test videos in the Metro.

Those show me accelerating away from a stop in the Metro in different gears. I am using a 400 amp controller on the car, and it pretty much tops out in that type of situation.
