ahaha ... yes i like it a lot.

In Italy the genre is called "polizottesco" ("Milano calibro 9", "La Polizia ringrazia", "Roma violenta" ...) were a lot of Honda Four, Kawasaki Mach III, Alfa Romeo and Citroen DS running crazy (but no C5).

:D

Hehehe I've been watching a lot of them lately. Films like Manhunt and The Big Racket. I own an Alfa myself so you get to see plenty on them. It's tricky trying to find them dubbed or subbed into english.

Haha that's a good use for those. I usually take them out of PC cases.  Also I watched Street Law last night, it was superb!

I seen that cone yesterday, bolted in a discarded case cover and i removed it and later i tried to install on the C5's motor: it fit perfectly !!!  ;D

Now i taken a PC 12V fan, so i'll try to put on.

"Street Law" in Italy was "Il cittadino si ribella" (approximately: "The citizen gets mad").



A great Franco Nero !   ;)

Yesterday i tested the C5 around home: it is very amusing !  ;)

The new 40Ah gel battery does not take all charge anymore, so the duration of runs is still limited ... moreover the battery "monitoring" strategy of POD does not help: the gauge can only decreases and sometimes it buzzes and disconnect the motor, so must cycle (on/off) the power to have a new full gauge ...

The other problem is the load indicator: with no motor activated, firts+last led lights, but when the motor is running only the first (green) led light. No other led never light, even wen the motor is under heavy load ...  :(

... ULA damage ?
