Scaled PWM road test

The 1st rover test was crazy fast. Visor was dripping sweat for the 1st time. Used new rover firmware which uses a linear PWM scale based on battery voltage. Set it to 9.5V. It was in the 7m50s range going downhill for 2 miles & the 8m range going uphill for 2 miles. The target pace is 8m20s going downhill, 8m40s going uphill. Might have to lowball the downhill speed to make the uphill speed accessible. The scaled PWM definitely pulled in the gap between starting & ending speed even though it's not the most accurate power regulation.

The fastest mile was 7m46s going downhill, which was way beyond any previous mile. GPS reported a 7m44s mile going uphill, but it must have been a glitch. Had a diarrhea break after 3 miles. After that, the phone measured a heart rate of 143 which quickly dropped to 115. There were many stops for flips & traffic, steeper hills where it dropped to 10m/mile.
