Two of the main limiting factors as of now for geared electrical motors are the torque output and high rpm. The higher the torque output, the stronger the gears/shafts/bearings need to be which in terms adds roational mass that can not spin at infinite rpm.
The general concept of dc (brushless) electrical engines have current output limit that in term limits the 0 to low rpm torque output. As rpm's rise, torque increases as to a point that voltage becomes the bottleneck. Top end rpm is achieved by dropping the current, as so torque drops dramatically.
Ive been toying with the idea of a CVT gearbox, purely for simplicity sake, engine torque can be limited at all times so it will not cause slip in the belt driven conical gears of a CVT, top end rpm can be given a little boost in torque as CVT can provide a more suiting gearing ratio... its all just theory.
Rimac use a nice and well packed design on two gears (low and tall) gearbox, that seems to be working well for them and their customers.

Brief Description of Incident: passing under yellow
A simple r/w barrier would've made people think before do.
Im with a bit of mixed feelings tbh. For the sake of applying the rules, sending out a message to the public that rules are strictly followed its right thing to do. But on the other side of the coin, we cant compare sim racing to rl simply because we're at home, cant get hurt (except if you lay your chin on the wheel and some one hits hard your car ).
In my view, the actual penalty given for breaking this specific rule is a tad too harsh. We're in a situation that the grid will have 2 empty spaces not because of lack of interest but because the rules say so. Rules usually are made to help contain a certain process in a pre-set margins and if the process goes beyond the margin - to be corrected by the "rules". In simple words - the rule as it is now is more of a hurdle than of any help.
In conclusion, i would just suggest invalidating the times infringing the rule, coming last in the pre qual order - filling up the remains of the spaces and enjoying the full grid in the race.
After all, this is pre qual, we run a more relaxed session (reset,spec,pit).
ive got nothing to save for post race reports since we've done this in the past, people havent learned. Oh and i love the way you call me to grow up, that gives me hope i havent actually. pties acceptovic.
