The guys at socal are checking it at 2 amps....

How do you break in your motors for silver cans....TAOB has the fastest motors...

Or better yet we need to get John Whittman to bring in his Fantom Dyno like he promised - that Bumm! Are you still reading this John?

If its only 2 amps wouldn't that mean with a 4200 battery we would get something like a 2 hour run time?

I'd really like to hear from someone with experience on this. I have been thinking of what the issues would be for a Mini Enduro race at SoCal and wondered how much battery swapping to expect.

With a 4200 battery you should get something like 17 minutes of run time before the lap times start to fall off. When they do, bring it in immediately as the discharge curve on those things looks like a cliff.

A couple of us are exploring interest in a Mini Cooper enduro race to be held at SoCal Raceway. I've posted some thoughts at Mini Cooper Enduro at SoCal Raceway
Thoughts?

lbckevin - Sell the wheels and tires on the car in the background of the pic and your money problems may be over..........that way you can keep the mini
