Thanks!Wow, congrats, a trophy on your first trip out. I'd gotten used to it being kitchen white, but it looks stunning in blue as well.
Good of you for showing you driving like... a beginner. I think people often forget that competitors all started somewhere, and that a responsible person isn't practising on public roads. Everyone who's competing had to learn at the track, where of course you're discovering your own car and how it handles and what your skills are.
Gotta buy or build yourself some better ramps. Or a trailer. Dirt cheap compared to your car. Or maybe just rent a car dolly instead, and then if you're sneaky and have remote control over the regen, you can tow yourself in circles to recharge at the track.
LOL! that was 2 1/2 years ago. I will have to do some digging to see if I can find them. Send-cut-send does not do holes. I used a machine shop.Say, any chance you could share the cad models of your chill plates? I assume you made the models then had send cut send cut them up, how much was that per plate anyway?
put it in GrabCADI'd recommend just tossing them onto grabcad

These were my small cooling plates for individual battery modules. Were you interested in my big plate where the channels snake around?View attachment 131633

Did the file lose some info in the conversion perhaps? Looking at the 3d view in grab cad it seems to only have three tubes going through it....?
I have uploaded that one as well. I made this symmetrical so I could order 2. I did have to drill and tap inlets & outlets. To make it more bullet proof, you may want to add a groove for a gasket to ensure everything seals well.Yup, that's what I was shooting for as I was planning to have multiple modules share a plate to simplify running hoses.
For that single module plate, is it literally a chunk of aluminum with channels drilled into it? Or did you drill holes and then run copper pipes through it
