A starter spun up real fast like that by a flywheel, likely put out a lot of power in a hurry. Well, enough to cook the insulation of the coils windings anyway.


That water wheel generator stuff is really cool. I love the idea of it for camping.

Everything about what happened to my coil makes sense.

That's exactly how it went down, ha ha.

We had rain today and it's turned cold but I drove her anyway. I even rolled up the back window and the driver/passenger windows once the rain was gone. Fun times. Can't wait for it to warm up this weekend and put the top completely down/off.
