Additional Features300 volts was too much, the peripherals only handled 150 volts so the front pack drained quicker than the back. I am very happy with fewer batteries and less weight.

9/2013 - MiMod with major glitches. It took too long for PC to boot up and the displayed gauges were not responsive enoubgh. I'm going with LED gauges instead.

Burned a battery, I'm going without a BMS and have bottom balanced.
A labor of love (Think Steven King's book Christine)
