We’re getting there….
There was a time when I thought we’d make this car in 12 episodes (actually there was a time when I thought we’d make it in 6)… 🙂
But here we are, episode 12 of 6, and I think we’re still a couple of episodes away from completion.
We’re looking mainly at battery temperatures throughout the ‘stack’ to make sure that under heavy load it stays consistent (across the stack) and within the operating range. For me battery temperature and the attendant risk of thermal run away is probably the big risk in the whole car.
But so far so very good.
We’re also going to simulate the loss of one motor at high speed (on a very long straight road) to see if the software can cut the power to the other one (we have one on each rear wheel) fast enough to avoid torque steer and the loss of control that could come with that. This is a very important test.
In more news we’ve finally found a fast charger. It’s been incredibly hard to do so.
But it’s on order now.
I’m hoping to take the car on the Brighton to London Eco rally on the 7th of July. Followed rapidly (I hope) by the track testing (which should be fun) and then the Nemesis should be ‘on the road’.
Then we’ll look at the land speed record….
Hope you enjoy the latest episode and I hope there won’t be too many more…. 🙂
