what voltage is challenger Karl? With any luck i maybe able to finish off the twin motor c5 sometime this decade lol

Although it is only 24v, it does have a 1kw motor from an HGV tail-lift  8)

The wires are really thick coz a huge amount of power was needed in a short amount of time - electricDave calculated we only need a run time of less than a minute.

The batteries are "standby" items previously used as part of a pack designed to power a bank's IT during a power cut. A bit heavy for a standard c5, but challengers strengthened chassis was able to cope.
