Brammo Empulse Introductory Offer for Oz!

And do it before the next eFXC race!!! How competitive would it be with a top speed of only 177kph? Would there not be a production class? I think it's competitive edge would be reliability. With the series struggling to get numbers, it would be great to see the eFXC series grow and include a bunch...

Electric Racer beats field of petrol cars...twice

I look forward to seeing an electric Celica in some motorsport events.

I did a couple of demonstration runs in my electric DeLorean at the Newcastle Mattara Hill Climb about 18 months back.

Voltron-Evo; jonescg's new electric race bike

To test this (without a wheel attached) I changed the resolver Gamma adjust from -7.4 degrees to +173.6 degrees and as expected it spins the opposite direction, however as soon as it hits base speed it goes into a runaway state all the way up to 5200 rpm or more, and throws an error. Tuning the gam...
