Turns out it was magic smoke.

Brush wires and trailing edge arcing.

Actually I was thinking of forced air ducts piped directly to the brushes. and then maybe a bilge pump for cooling afterwards.

AUUHGG , THUNDERBIRD !! Lighter and going to the body shop Friday . I just can't seem to get a controller to work for me . The motor turns and changes direction , but I might not have the power to go thru the controller because I can't charge the battery's yet . (very low budget an no one to help)

Going to use two motors , one per wheel . Or one motor direct drive . And I will be putting the controllers or controller up front to cool it .

Just save some time and put the two motors in line direct drive in the transmission tunnel. You should already have a strong Ford 7.5 inch differential in there with probably a very low numbered highway gear.

But I want higher RPM's from the motor . The main 3.00-1 an 2.80-1coming in the mail . Is 150 Amps the basic amount needed to get high speed geared cars like ours off the line in a ok manner ? I"ll be using a 6.00-1 gear to drive around for a little bit .
