Q: Those Mr. Fusion batteries are great! Where
Can I buy Them?
A: Sorry, those batteries don’t actually exist. They’re just something made up to stand in for a regulated power
Q: Why does the motor specs window show that the motor is 1.5 hp, but in the
drive train specs window it’s only 1.6 hp for two motors?
A: The numbers
under the motor
specs tab show what the motor would do if it were connected to an ideal power
source with no electrical resistance like a regulated
power supply. In a system using batteries, the batteries, wiring, and speed
controller all add some electrical resistance that limits the power the total
Q: Sometimes the current line goes above the
top of the current graph in the test drive simulation, is this a bug?
A: No, the
top of the graph represents the calculated stall current. You can draw
more than an electric motor's stall current by rapidly switching it from forward
to reverse, this is called "plugging", which can draw up to twice the
current of a motor at stall.
Q: Can you sponsor my team or bot?
A: Sorry, we're not sponsoring any
teams at this time.
