The first bench test ended up like this. I got the clamps modified, installed the motor/ESC/Batteries and I fired it up. I wanted to see how much tire growth and how the tires would hold up from just 8s power (around 30v) which gives me a max of about 15k rpms. As you can see the tired failed. There was also a large amount of tire growth. I ordered some new tires and they should be in next week. Hopefully doing actual testing on the ground (no free-wheeling) will keep the tires from failing.
