A little bit of fabrication

Over the last couple of months there have been a few changes to accommodate the new race battery pack in the GS750V and to brace the motor appropriately as we head towards full torque output.  Below you can see the new brackets that prevent the motor's aluminium body from carrying all the torque and they also provide a new mounting point for the the inverter just above the motor.

In addition to that, we have put together our dual motor dyno ready for fine tuning of the motor control algorithms under development in the Tumanako project.

Dyno for motor tuning

Big thanks to Stephen for driving the details and making this happen and also to the Spaceships crew and PureAdvantage for the support along the way.  Thanks also to the fine Engineering work and support provided by Abel Metal Products, Primero Profiles, Tordeich Engineering and Ladarac.

We are now ready for the batteries!
