Thanks Elith.

I can guess which team I helped. Can you Tess I guessing one of these others is running your 3000A box. Which one would that be

And ruck, we wouldn't want to affect the gaming odds, so I'd better just keep quiet

That fire might make them run faster. Seriously though....Fire is a real bummer

On the Rinehart site I see their biggest available controller is only 150kw. They do list a 350kw available soon. Wonder if the racers got a beta release of the 350kw.

I imagine the race teams heavily consider motor cooling ability (continuous hp) over peak power. Motor heat is the real battle in this race (other than those pesky corners ).

Well, it's not one of the Japanese teams

We're in the BMW M3 that Boris Said is driving. I love the Pikes Peak Hill Climb but I'm really fired up (er, poor choice of words) this year. I just hope Shiva doesn't live up to her namesake...

I wonder why they call it a hill. Also, why the Japanese (electrics) are so fond to race it. Well, I hope your controller makes it to the top. And my wires

It is the perfect race for electrics. Short. Very short. Lots of corners, so torque out of the corners is a major factor. Who has torque?

Electrics.

Power out of the corners and don't crash. You are winner. Simple.

And it's at altitude... which favors electrics.
