It's the Old 11" with inter-poles. Amazing how much torque even at 72 volts. Too much for the poor stock tranny. For sure having better gearing would help. I hope to have my new tranny mounted in my Roadster soon. Gotta take the body off to repair the pan. That is why I am using the 66 Bug for now. I want skinny tires for the Bugs.
The old model 11" is not the high voltage but I am going to pump in 156 volts with a 192 volt pack. If it does not like that I will advance it some and try again. It is currently advances some already. Interpoles will help a bunch for the high voltage. The Kostov does not like high amperage. I will limit it to 800.
I also have a stage II pressure plate in the Bug. That is one stiff pressure plate.
