HadesOmega X Light Bee vs Hollister Hills Wild Wabbit 2021

I managed to get into the Hollister Hills Wild Wabbit Hare Scramble on April 18, 2021. I didn't register fast enough and the support race slots filled up. I got wait listed and luckily was able to get in! Time to see what 13kw and 125lbs can do at the Wild Wabbit!

Lap 1 - Here we go it's another pandemic harescramble race at Hollister Hills. I barely managed to get into the race and was waitlisted but I managed to make it in to the support event! Watch us attack the course for the first lap!

Lap 2 - Here we go 2nd lap, now that we got a look at the course on the 1st lap it's time to ramp it up!

Lap 3 - It's the third lap I know where all the tricky spots are, we are rippin through the course this is the fastest lap!

Lap 4 - This is the 4th and final lap, with enough electrons to finish the race it's time to finish strong!

Thanks for posting the race videos. Fun to watch. I kept thinking, "he's got no air filter or air box to worry about, no pipe to damage, no fuel to spill in a crash, no worry about stalling..."

Yeah it's a cheater bike Don't have to worry about what gear to be in, don't have to worry about elevation, no clutch lever to break, no oil, no carburetor to get plugged up (it really happened to me during one race)

Does that one have a radiator? I know that the electric locomotives have big cooling fans for the traction motors, but no water cooling. And they have a little more power (6400 kW).

It is all air cooled motor and controller. The controller has an aftermarket heatsink made by Matt Botos that makes RC helicopter parts. It still overheats and you'll get thermal cutback during races.

The main components that get hot are the motor, controller, and battery. My Empulse has a water cooled motor it was great for keeping the motor cool but the battery would overheat. O_o
