Re: How to get 2 boats to the G7???

Re: My Hell Cat Project

Like all electric motors check actual draw at full tilt as every electric car I have seen advertised does their sums on normal running, not flat out or 3/4qtr throttle as in a boat...all cars dont even get to a third of their actual run time at high speeds so even if you are saying they get 6hours I...
