Plug Braking

I'm only fine tuning what is a great car to drive. Max delay between gear changes is only around 3 seconds, which doesn't sound like much, but I would like to try circuit racing or drag racing this year. I like to keep my EV as mechanically simple as possible. I like Peter's suggestion, bigger motor...

Plug Braking

Motor usually spins up if I miss a gear, trying to show the ICE cars who's boss.
Don't like to strain my little Suzuki gearbox trying to slow the motor down to get a gear again.
Getting my EV on two wheels doesn't usually last for long and revs stay at a manageable level.

Hi Peter. The Solaton Jr. is rated at 450-500 Amp. Peak at 600 Amp. May also need to update motor from 8 to 9 inch or add some cooling fans.
But the car has been so good I really don't want to change anything until I have to.

Ohmboy cruise

My little van goes great. It's very basic but makes a great test vehicle for our BMS units etc. Unfortunately I have a company car so only get to drive the van on weekends and our Tuesday night EV chat/dinner. My wife drives it to work during the week sometimes though.
