At WOT with no load the system uses about 130 watts. After my commute to work today (7.8 miles) at WOT the whole way (except when stopping at lights & stuff) the motor was too hot to touch for long, so a bit hotter than around the block, but not bad.
Hey Matt, I think even my low KV motor may sync a bit better at low RPM now, especially if I keep the throttle low. It's hard to compare Ah used from day to day as the speed and direction of the wind really affects the amount of power needed for cruising, and some days I am more throttle-happy than others.
I should be able to determine after a week or so though if the motor timing change helps or hurts the overall efficiency.
BTW, I'll be getting a sports video camera soon as my birthday gift to myself, so I may finally be able to post the more interesting bits of the commute.
