Temporary Battery Pack

During the road testing phase of the project we are using the set of 44 Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries that will eventually go where the gas tank used to be, only they are sitting in the back seat of the MINI. This way they have access to each cell while we are testing.
We have a styrafoam sheet for the big pack there too. It acts a a little safety insulation, there is plenty of energy stored in the batteries, so just like gasoline you need to treat them with care. We are hoping to get a test run in tonight before taking a break for the weekend....
