The 2013 racing has the potential to be some serious fun....
but first...... some upgrades to the Cafe racer
For the 2013 racing season we will be upgrading:
As of 1/15/13:
Motor cooling - Complete
Minor rewiring - Complete
Higher Voltage Controller - Complete (600 amp!)
A change to that, it is now a 1200A Kelly
from one of the TTXGP bikes. (running at 50%)
2 more battery boxes - Built
Added Batteries - We are now up to 96 volts with
15 more batteries on the way (to be 32S5P)
Better battery chargers - on the way
Larger power cables - all of the cables have been changed to 1/0.
A better motorcycle stand (If I am good according to Santa)
I must have been good as it is here!
Racing suit back brace - installed.
New tires - Done, and they are sticky!
New period correct Decals front and back- in progress.
The back is done, see below.
We want to represent the EV community in the right way.
TTXGP we are not, but for this group we
still make a good impression.
Testing - January, we hope
Here is the first of many important
the 2013 racing season. (get your tickets now??? )
We added a new cooling fan for the Motenergy ME1003
We had some heat
issues at the last event,
it was time to add some forced air.
We left most of the original brush cover on to protect the
brush pack and to
force the air through the entire motor.
We cut away enough to get good air flow.
Next the fan mount.
The fan is a 7 3/4" automotive
(police car no less)
and designed for continuous use.
After final testing it all gets pulled
the bracket/cover get cleaned up and painted.
Preliminary results are very positive.
It also does not impede the natural flow of the original
if there is a failure of the electric fan.
The air flow is easily tripled over the standard setup.
Very well suited for racing.
Look Ma, no tail light!
