I think this is the first time I have heard of a real number for how many amps the project was shooting for.

If the controller would do 500 amps and 144 volts, that makes 72KW! Which equals 96 HP! (and it's all torque!!!)

Whose cheap-EV are we going to hot-rod first!!?!!? (mine, mine, -- ooo, mine!)
