A new distance record

Finally achieved 25 mile range on a vehicle. It only carried food for the lion & the headlights ran for 2/3 of it. The right front tire interfered with the new battery clamp, but it was otherwise flawless. Brushless motor, wheel alignment, ball bearings were key to getting this range on the lunchbox.

It burned 4370mAh +4907mAh or 362mAh/mile, so well above the predicted burn rate. The transmission oil may have worn out. To feed the lion, only 2 Cliff Bloks were required. The speed was reduced to 12min/mile, to aid the lion. That reduced the animal burn rate while it may have increased the machine burn rate.
