So much torque!

Sorted out the power limit on the Lexus inverter today. Two words: Holy Crap!

This thing has so much torque I can barely touch the pedal and spin the tires (well, the left one at least). I'm going to have to get an M3 rear end and some better tires very promptly.

It's just finishing touches at this point! So excited. I've never had a car that could do this before.

(sorry for the vertical video. Obviously I wasn't the one recording the video).

Awesome work.. so pleased you got this all working.

Clearly performance isn't an issue which is brilliant.  What is the expected range out of this?

  Are you sure? yes | no

I'm hoping to get 100 miles from it. Will depend heavily on driving habits and terrain though.
