"Flash" (Friends know it as Christine. Both do fit!) This Sparrow has been modified From original Configuration. i.e. Battery boxes have had extra fans added 2 in each one pushing one pulling. Rear box under seat had a scoop added "just above" the bottom of the car as to not add extra drag allowing more airflow while driving. Thermal switches in both battery boxes to allow fans to cycle normally and independently weather car is running, charging or not. Controller has had an external heat sink added and direct mount fan due to heat related controller cut backs in high heat conditions. Remember heat here in the summers rarely get under 110 in the coolest part of the night.
