  • Curious about how Power (kW or HP) is measured and compared? Power is the amount of work a motor or engine can do. This is why people compare vehicles HP with other vehicles HP! Power is a factor of both torque and RPM, which means you can have a low speed car with big torque, or a high speed car with little torque, even though both cars have the same HP! The equation is KW = (Torque[Nm]×RPM) / 9565 In our case, because our motor powers a jet pump, it has fairly low speed of a few thousand RPM but lots of torque to move water. One more thing makes it tricky! Electric motors are sometimes quoted for their INPUT power, but an electric motor is only 80-95% energy efficient, which means the output power is less 5-20% less the input power. Want to learn more? The internet is your friend! Search these terms on Google and you'll be able to learn even more :)

    • I learned it through the four constants of racing. Understeer is when the front of your car hits the wall. Oversteer is when the back of your car hits the wall. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you move the wall.

It's basically a retail product that hasn't been put together, so you're not paying for labour and the risk of it leaking is on you instead of them lol. It's like the electronics of IKEA furniture... Just really expensive ikea. 22Kw of brushless turbine goodness is still properly cool, I love the video, but I've gotta say it.

  • Two 22 Amp batteries can be a little dangerous on water. As for the wires overheating, they have too much resistance for that gauge of wire. I would go 3 sizes larger giving twice the wire diameter but only about half of the resistance. It is the resistance in the wire that is causing the heat. This information comes straight from my Professor in college who is a fully trained and experienced master electrician.
