Zilla LV Settings

3832 Views 18 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  mcrickman
I have got my Opel up and running but it doesn't seem to be giving the performance I was expecting. I thought I would post my specs and settings here so other Zilla owners might give me some feedback.

Batteries 100ah Thunder Sky 48x.
Warp 9 Motor
Zilla 1K LV Controller

Zilla 1k settings:

Battery Menu
BA = 300
LBV = 145
LBVI = 150

Motor Menu
Amp = 800
Volt = 156
RA = 0
RV = 0
PA = 0
PV = 0

Speed Menu
Rev Limits
Norm = 5000
Rev = 0
Max = 5500

Options Menu
MotSpd1 = on
MotSpd2 = off
AutoShift = off
StallDetect = off
Batt lt polarity = off
Ck eng lt pol. = off
FR Contactors = off
SP Contatctors = off
Parallel Reverse = off
Drag Race = off
Amps on Tach = off
6 Cyl Tach = off
Plug in Polarity = off
HEPI = on
Z1K Scaling = on

Did I over look any setting(s)?

Thanks, Charlie

I'm glad you got your setup working. My only word of caution is with your 100ah batteries, your max rated cont. discharge is 4C, 400A. Most LiFePO users on this forum don't recommend cont. discharge in excess of 3C, so 300A in your case.

What I'm trying to say is your controller has the ability to totaly kill your pack. Don't get adicted to your vehicles capabiltiy and get a lead foot because it can bite you in the butt with your relativly low Ah rated pack.

With my 9in Warp9, Zilla LV, and 48 LiPo pack I got 132 mile range, 106 mph top speed and 0-60 in about 12 sec. 700 miles so far. Fun to drive!

132 mile range on a 100ahr pack, thats really good, thats 154 Whr/mile. Most people seem to get 250 Whr/mile. How big is this Opel?

What kind of range do you get out of your porche. I ask because I have nearly an identical setup for my MR2 that I'm building, I'm wondering what kind of range to expect, I was thinking something like 90 at 100 DOD.
