I read that ripperton had issues with his kelly and a higher voltage pack, so he is trying to lower the voltage back down for the race. Between this race and the last one he decided to reconfigure his pack. The high v made the motor jerk I guess. Good luck to all

175 volts on a 180 volt Kelly just isn't going to work, it sounds like a desperate move for a little more speed, but we all try and push the limits. I hope her can get the pack reconfigured in time, nothing worse than a race without racers

I'll try and update you. Voltron has won both races with a problem free weekend. Chris worked hard to learn the track and improve each time out. He had put together a charging setup with 3 chargers in parallel giving him 36 amps for charging. This allowed him to get out for every practice session and really learn the track.

Jon (Catavolt) had some temp issues and some headway cell issues during the two days racing.

Photos and videos up tomorrow when I am back home.
