T Rush created the thread Nico Rosberg gets an el.moto...says "its not the future, its the moment".

I've been a big fan of Nico since I saw him race F1 in his rookie season, but my heart kinda dropped in 2016 when he quit driving right after he won the world championship....the other day I found his YouTube channel, as he just got an electric motorcycle a few weeks ago...seems he also has Renault TWIZY, and is a big supporter of the transportation revolution happening now "

" No, the DS18B20 are for Raspberry Pi and Arduino microcontrollers. You can get em cheap on eBay in a waterproofed version or cheaper yet in an unwired pcb version

" It should be a kick in the pants! I'm aiming for 30-35kW peaks with voltage sag, still it's a bit more HP (and torque) than some of the engines these guys run.

I want to raise the ride height a little for the neighborhood (On a dead end street and we share a side with the back of a church that has a big parking lot), and maybe get some street tires (rather than slicks). "

You referring to the stock units that come in the leaf packs?

Haven't actually considered using them as I haven't even looked into their characteristics - I was just thinking more along the lines of t-type thermocouples.
Cheap as chips and more than accurate enough. "

" As Frodus says, top balance is best even if for no other reason than you're at the top of the pack far more regularly than you're at the bottom which makes the whole lot far easier to monitor.
Set your bulk lower limit conservatively and you'll be grand at the low end.

@Nicman - now you've got it! "

" 72V x 600A = 42kW?!!?

Damn that thing is gonna be handful!

" We have Portland International Raceway and they do some track days. There's also a couple kart tracks where I can grab some track time on certain days. I may not do racing competitivbely, but I'd like to get on the track. "

" That looks like HELLA fun! Is there a track in Portland? When I lived in SoCal, me and a buddy that I used to race Yamaha YSR's with would sneak onto the track near Port Hueneme after our races and ride till dark! That place no longer exists. Awwww the good ol' days!! LOL!!

Those cells remind me of Headways except both + and - terminals are on the same end? "
