Without a real set of test cases being run, in which thermocouples are installed in the stator and the various configurations tested... I don't know ........... but thinking about it ... it almost seems like the -SC version of the R/R might be the "local optimum" ............
I don't think so..... As the higher voltage should ease the load on the stator.....And...just because the R/R dont get as hot...... does not mean that more heat is going to the stator. But as you duely noticed....No body will know until a lead is placed on the stator. We know the old on eventually will eventually kill the stator..... we also know is kills the battery....fairly fast as well..... This one will/should not kill the battery....so at least one achievement here.....Perhaps two...
