Wilmington, Day 2

Today was another good day.  We found out that we were hitting a software parameter that was limiting battery current on the 131mph run. This morning we changed that and were able to hit 144.5mph and increase our record.  After looking at the data from this run it appeared that there wasn't much more we could get out of the machine except with a gearing change or major change.  We did decide to do another run to get more data.  During that run the controller hit another current limit in the controller and the bike coasted without power the final 1/2 mile and we only got 70mph.  Nothing in the data showed why the limit was hit...more digging and questions will be asked to figure this one out. We decided to call it a weekend and take our 144.5mph home with us.
