Dyno pulls for motorcycles on road racing slicks also seem to consume the tire amazingly fast.Arlo1 wrote:Yeah we had a guy here on the island dyno testing his drag turbo hyabusa over and over on a slick it exploded and smacked I'm in the back throwing him forward injuring his back, head and breaking 3 ribs.drother wrote:Don't do it on drag radials either.

So proud of you Arlin!! Hero of future hotroding!!Arlo1 wrote:Everything went amazing the best run was a 12.6 at 117 mph I charged off batteries that were charge with solar power. And Discovery channel filmed it all. So excited for all this. I tried everything I could for better 60" times but 2.2-2.3 is all I can get ATM. Soon I will try more things at home the car ran amazing all day I drove it 110km got there charged it up raced all night while topping up from my own Energy then drove 110 km home again.
The 800a igbts are working great I turned the power up 20 phase amps at a time from 750-770-790 then I ran out of charge and it was time to pack up so I could catch the 10:45 ferry (last one) home so I can look after my 9mo son as I promised the wife I would at 8am..
. I tuned out a surge by lowering the Inductance and I played with the acceleration limiter to try to keep it from spinning which helps but I don't have enough data yet...
Last run I blew a Supra out of the water! Made me feel so good.... Oh and I beat a BMW M5! It's all on video for discovery channel.

Thanks its been a long road but well worth it.izeman wrote:arlo that's AMAZING. never knew that sub 3s times with FRONT WHEEL DRIVE only are possible!!
imagine what you could do with 4WD!? maybe beat tesla 100d in ludicrous mode?
That certainly sounds like a good plan for getting off the line quickly without smashing things.Arlo1 wrote: Last time I give it just a little throttle and used the e brake to hold the car and when the 3 yellows were up I pinned the throttle while letting off the e-brake. I think this might be a better way as its not as hard on the controller.... But I need more testing on this.
i guess this may never be aired outside us/canada, so please be so kind to put the video on youtube once you have access to it, or link the official video if possible. i would really appreciate to see it!!Arlo1 wrote:Discovery filmed it so I bet they have some good video.
Sure thing. I will find a way to make it happen.izeman wrote:i guess this may never be aired outside us/canada, so please be so kind to put the video on youtube once you have access to it, or link the official video if possible. i would really appreciate to see it!!Arlo1 wrote:Discovery filmed it so I bet they have some good video.
Ey cool ! something to be proud of (and I'm proud to have a small part in this)
And by quite a margin. Way to go! You just raised the bar for the others. And with front wheel drive too, that's amazing.
