Weird! There are no comments on any of the forums, except for a few tests posts like "this is a test". Their mission is to create "entrapaneurial opportunities around the world...". Maybe Open Revolt is becoming a popular name. I don't think it's a coincidence, because they have this thread listed on their website. ReVolt Electric Vehicle Project - Links I have no idea who runs it though. Well, it lists a guy's name, but I don't know who it is. The site is very professional looking.

I need lots of help with aesthetics.

In my defense, I would like to say it is extremely hard to solder on 4 gauge copper.

I ran into that website a few mouths ago. At first I thought it was affiliated with this group too.

I'll make sure my class at school takes action. They are going to write a very stern letter to that little pickle!

Any of you ever tried water-cooling for the mosfet heat sink? I decided to go with water-cooling and it doesn't seem that difficult so far. It looks like the design you guys are using has an aluminum block without fins. Does that provide enough cooling?
