Super busy for a little while, but wait on wiring mods, theres an issue or 3, hint, none of those threads had issues with voltage going down as rpm's raise and as for the AC wiring, supersize them only if you wish to add a few days to the life of your battery by taking months off the life of your stator

Alpi I have seen that video before, and though it may or may not technically be considered a fire, it wasn't very exciting, just a bunch of mostly steam. His charging system went super high voltage when his regulator went full tilt. A lead acid battery is actually more exciting under those conditions so I don't consider that occurrence noteworthy except in that nothing particularly bad happened and the smoke/steam looked cool. Find me flames that I can se and I will get more reactive :)

NDC it means your stator will last longer because the clamping voltage is higher resulting in lower stator current and heating, but probably not much longer. Only thermocouple couple tests will tell how much, the math is beyond nearly everyone and miles beyond me.

P.S. this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPwPB...feature=colike cracked me up. Not scientifically meaningful, but very funny because I am always amused when people get opposite results of what they were expecting.
