It seems like it's limited to either 1500w or 20a. Is there a factory power limit? If so, how do I remove it?

I got tired of the batteries in the back so I moved them up front. Balance is way better now and it'll be good for jumping this summer. I need to find a good material to put over the packs (in place of the towl) and I need to finish making a good battery hold-down. The material I put over the batteries would ideally be waterproff, durable, and good looking,, but I'll probably have to comprimise.
I like the new seat position. I grew up riding bmx bikes so the low seat really fits. The batteries are just narrow enough so it doesn't really interfere with my peadaling. I'll report more on that after I get another ride in.

In other news I am about done with my Bullet Plugs. The last short I had to open up one of my zippies and re-solder one of the tabs. It was blown apart. This new short today is the one that sent me over the edge.
I would make a sweet Tattoo, wouldn't it?? The stuff really doesn't want to come off, so it'll be on there for awhile before I decide to get it permanent.
