    On board footage of my electric race yesterday.

    I think you guys will enjoy this video.

    Electric torque FTMFW!!!

    Right around the 2minute mark I finally get the chance to open her up. 116v, 780amps battery current on a ~110lbs bicycle.

    Sadly though, the motor smoked 8 laps into the 12 lap final, and I was taking things very easy on her, just holding my position using as little throttle as possible. It was a little cooked coming into the final event though, it had about 50 times over it's life that it had smoke coming out of it, and finally it said enough is enough and shorted up solid. lol

    Sweet race! Wow, you shot by those other racers so quickly. What kind of speed were you able to achieve? Sorry about your smoked motor, but at least you got to smoke the other competitors first.

    What the hell kind of class is that?

    What I mean to say is; what are the class rules? Seems like a peculiar mix of machinery.

    Thank you. I couldn't stop smiling watching that part about 10x in a row. lol It doesn't seem like it's real.


    Good news too! The bicycle will be getting a SECOND size 6 controller added to the other side of my battery tray. That will enable 1560amps off the pack at ~116v. I'm actually going to be giving those nano's a bit of a workout finally. They have been laughing at my 780amp battery draw.

    So does your motor know that it is now going to be used as a seat heater? haha

    Are you going with two motors now or one larger one?

    You better be at Laguna this year cuz I'm not gonna lie one of the reasons I plan on flying out is a chance to meet you and your creations!
