I ended up destorying a FET when running 60amp battery and 120 phase amps with a stock 18-FET Lyen controller. I'm seeing alot of people doing this with their un-modified smaller controllers... but it's only a mater of time until they go POOF!
I'm going to be preforming the mosfet tie together MOD that Zombies has documented on a rainy day in the coming weeks. I just have to decided if I'm going to switch to the Mica insulator. I also plan on adding some form of ventilation

Did you try it?
Lebowski wrote:No. But I would get a slid aluminium bar, dril a hole lengthwise for the oil to flow through and screw the FETs to this.
But 6 4110's at 80V and 70A battery (100A phase, about 10W of dissipation per FET) would give
you a 5.6 kW controller. You don't need a huge amount of FETs for this power level.

almost the same specs as the 4115, but higher peak current capability (170A instead of 104A), similar resistance (12mOhm vs 11mOhm), and similar form factor (TO-220). Would these take more high current abuse?

I didn't have enough supply at the time to run past 145A or so, but I couldn't get the bond wires to melt. Obviously, being that this is a single FET, its going to share current quite well. Thats where the 1/3 loss factors in for more than one FET. I feel comfortable saying that IRFB4110PBF's can sustain the 100A or so I claim.
