    It's likely that 5K is the break speed of the motor i. e. speed where max power is achieved. Snowmobiles used for drag racing run a 2-step with the lower limit just below the point where the clutch...

    The article says the top speed is 270, not that she hit that at Lake Gairdner. Killajoule ran 270 in September 2014 at the Mike Cook Shootout.

    You'd be better off with a smaller motor and bigger controller (ex. Z1k). It really depends on your goals. Also, while the tranny idea is neat, unless you're racing it's not really necessary. Then...
