I took my MS85 on a longer race track (2.5 miles), and after about 15 minutes of continuous running around 70-110mph range, I got two yellow dashed lines on the power gage on the dash, limiting the output power to 160kw and regenerative - to 30kw. Found it in the owner's manual, that the car is limiting acceleration and regenerative breaking when the battery is being cooled. Which makes sense. But the question I have is this.
What are the guidelines for when it gets too hot ? Can it be proactively cooled ahead of time ? Is there any way to see what the temperature is vs. ideal ?
Just want to make sure I don't need to go off the track the next time if I can help it.
