nice video. I like the usage of the orange dots. I might steal that idea to practice next time out.

Ali -

You're looking great out there. Your car has some serious motor

I like the track. Do you have a lap-counting system?

Thanks guys for the comments,

Pakk, i had those leying around when we ran our m18s in a friend's basement, making all the corners narrower is a great way of keeping your laps consistent (sorry for the spelling) and your driving as tight as poosible.

Khal, thanks for the kind words, as we speak now, the guys are fabricating the sensor bridge, the AMB system is in the back of my car since am new to electric, i wasn't sure what motor to get, i did ask few pros and they recommended the 4.5T to 6.5t range. so i got the 4.5T, its awesome and tons of power eventhough my gearing is not right yet.

will install it tomorow and start running timed practice.

cheers

Ali

Ali, check your gearing. Brushless motors really require very particular gearing, and in particular do not over-heat them. Start on the conservative side. Also, you must have a temp gun lying around. Check the temp on your motor. I cannot advise what temperature you should be hitting, but there must be a thread around here somewhere that describes it.
