Wow - Magic Pie fiasco...typical GM
Seems like stories are cropping up all over the place (especially the GM forums) of failed internal Magic Pie controllers, due to overheating. Not only that, the internal controllers only supply around 20 amps. There's gonna be a lot of unhappy pie-eaters around that will have a failed pie, followed by the usual "lacklustre to non-existent" communication from GoldenMotor, as they try to rewired their failed pies to a different external controller, by bringing the wires out through the hub. That's a lot of regen going back through the controller in there...ouch...putting controllers inside motors seems to be a bad idea...I know Bionx works well, but I resent the proprietary location of controllers in there too...sorta like Microsoft vs Linux...
