Joe, it's nearly done. I apologize for the wait.

The RPM curve will climb at a mostly steady rate and then rolls off at the top. If you are seeing it at the steady rate when you hit the end of the straight you were likely overgeared. Mine started to round off at the end which indicated I was most likely in the ball park. I remember a peak of 17600 and was able to hold 17400 through out the race. This was with a 4.55 gear ratio.

Thank you Randy for providing this system as it made for a great class. Also, we should put a tutorial together for next year so you don't have to explain to people that their cars aren't quite as fast as others because their battery voltage was lower or they weren't on the throttle near as long.

Id much rather prefer a video tutorial on what means what on the software asap so we know how to maximize the results of the products

If the software was out I could probably make a video tutorial.
