Stephen, It's nice and warm out here. About 78 and not a cloud in the sky! Put that nitro car away you Gasshole

I do not know much about electricty and electronics; but,
aren't there componants which alow you to increase voltage, coils or transformers?

In circuit design can't you trade 7 volts/30 amps/8 minutes for say for say 8.5 volts/30 amps/ 6 minutes.

If this is the case you would think that since 3800mah have more capacity or more total amp/hours tan you need for stock racing, you could put a componant in the circuit which would give you more voltage.

This is actually a question that I've thought of as well. Unfortunately, the nature of a transformer doesn't make the idea very feasible.

A motor is basically a resistor that converts electical current into a physical force, by creating a magnetic field. So physics says that if current flow remains constant, an increase in voltage should increase power, as power = volts squared/resistance. The way a transformer works is that the current from the power source creates a magnetic field, which in turn creates a current on a different "wire". The drawback is that you need a varying current from the power source, hence the need to invert a DC power source into an AC source. This isn't an issue in large generating operations, as they are mostly AC anyways. So, to make the scheme work, you would need to invert the current twice between the battery and motor, and that equipment would weigh a lot.

Nice Jon,

You have no excuse NOT to win right?

I'll probably give you a call during the race to let you know how it's going.

Actually John will be there to help out and watch the race on behalf of me. =P but I'll ask him to contact you prior to going.

Dan : When are you planning to release the GP 3700s ?

I believe he's answered this one before, & that answer is they'll start selling them once they're approved by the major race sanctioning bodies(like ROAR).....

Are 3700's still not ROAR legal ? Even the EFRA (and thus the BRCA) have approved them, and when you know that the cells have been released a bit late for homologation in normal conditions, you can see that it's quite a miracle. So basically, what you're saying is that i'll have to get them from another matcher, since ROAR seems to take their time
