I'm going to be very interested to hear what your motor amp range is. ElectricZX2 is getting around 550-600 I think. I think my max range was 1000, but I'm not sure now.

haha ya, but mine was just an implied 1000amp limit. I tested the throttle, like 20%, and then noted that I was getting 20% of around 1060 amps. I wonder if electric ZX2 was getting 600 motor amps because the motor started to spin which limited the motor current? I don't know.

I don't know if the 1000amp software survived. I know it didn't make it to carbonite. Maybe it got posted on the wiki.

hahaha... Hmm... OK, you know the housing loan application? When it asks, what is your yearly income, they evidently mean what was your average income for the last 2 years. I'd been working a whole bunch of hours at my school this year, so we've made more money than the last 2 years, but THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT THIS YEAR AT ALL!!!! So, no. We are going nowhere. It's back to life like in Kenya again. haha. Maybe some time in 2012.

The good news is, I don't have a car to test the newest prototype, since I sold that car a couple weeks ago so we could move. haha.

Well, the bank definitely stunk after I left, since I ate a whole bunch of beans, and left a deposit there that wasn't money.

That sounds great! I love holland too. IT's soooo beautiful.

Could be I'm only getting 600 amps because the Good Lord knows I would smoke my homemade coupler with 1000 amps . At any rate...instead of going up to 511 or whatever the reference is it goes up to like 270 or something like that. The math worked out that the reference was the same percentage of 1008 of what I'm getting...
