It's the Zeva 1000amp controller. I have chosen every option known to man. This setup should be well and truely overkill for my purpose. As I was forced to spend more money I didn't want to take the chance of it still falling short of my expectations.
You can see the details here: www.zeva.com.au
I chose this setup because it is sturdy, has the specifications I wanted, has local (Australian) support and the price is reasonable. But also being local I was confident they could deliver in the timeframe I required, still leaving enough time for me to install it before the next event. I considered getting the 600amp variant but I didn't want to take the risk of paying all that money and still not seeing the performance I am after.
I know there are options with more capacity and others with lower prices. But I am totally out of practice building my own components and after my last experience I wanted technical support and delivery from this country.
Also The guys at Zeva have been extremely supportive. I wish I could say the same for Curtis.
November should be an exciting month for me. I am aiming for a 1st place outright and won't be happy with anything less than a podium spot.
On other news I ran in the 2016 Australian Khanacross Chamionship in Proserpine 8 days ago. I cam 7th outright and 4th in class in a Subaru Liberty. I was coming 4th outright on bitument on day 1 but my lack of experience in the car and on dirt cost me on day 2. But the reason I mention it here isn't those results. The interesting thing for me is that the Batt mobile would have been eligable to run. I would just need to find some tyres suitable for dirt. The outright winner of the event was an MX5 that had been in a roll over, then a roll cage added and then all the doors and body removed. So basically if was an Mx5 Floor plan and running gear with a roll cage. There were no other modifications. So it was quite similar to the Batt mobile (other than being rear wheel drive and running on dinosaur juice). So this has inspired me to get the Batt mobile up to speed and try it on the circuits up there. Its a really long haul to get there and back but I think I could do really well. It wouldn't be the Australian champs though. The next Australian champs is in Tasmania 2017 which isn't really appealling to me but maybe I'll come around to that.
