Well, there is 2 options:

1. Dynamic Brake Pedal Regen is pre-programmed in all HyPer 9 Clone files. To utilize Dynamic Brake Pedal Regen, a Brake Pressure Transducer must be installed in the system. This Transducer sends a 0-5V signal that the X1 controller is programmed to transfer into Brake Regen Torque.

OR (MOST LIKELY)

2. Regen on Neutral Operating Profiles
There are three Regen on Neutral values shown below are pre-programmed into HyPer 9 clone files. These values can be adjusted to suit user preference.
• Profile 1 E (End Regen) : 0% (Coast)
• Profile 2 S (Some Regen) : 28%
• Profile 3 H (High Regen) : 40%

Regardless, on a small vehicle it doesn't gain as much as you'd think. Somewhere between 5-20% Max. So 100 mile range may only increase it an additional 5-20 miles. Which is something, Tesla is only reporting between 15 and up to 32% max. Unfortunately small cars simply don’t carry much momentum and thus have less kinetic energy to convert back into the battery.

Could be a contest? I'm still standing behind 125 to 150. But knowing me, will be hard to keep the foot off the throttle... which is getting delivered this week.

Is there a contest for guessing the real world range on this when it released in to the wild?

Slowly chipping away at it. It is now on 4 Rose Petals Wheels. Started installing headliner and glass, hopefully will be done tomorrow night. The Tesla Batteries are waiting for me at the freight terminal for pickup. Still keeping the build as sanitary as we can. Pretty pleased and excited with how it's shaping up, just never fast enough when you have other builds as well that need progressing.

I forgot to update this thread. Have since gotten a we bit further. Fitted the front clip after smoothing most of the firewall and slam panel, and extra wiper holes, and dash pad holes, etc. Got the car in Nardo Grey, still needs to be buffed. But pretty happy with the way she turned out. Popped in some mk2 tails, and freshly rebuild rear subby. The Genuine 10" Rose Petals should be here today, and the mirrors. Really happy with the way things are shaping up. Got a bunch of parts that are trickling in. Battery enclosures, cooling system, wiring, etc up next. Gauges are done being produced, and Adam will be developing a brain box to drive all the analog looking gauges. Stay tuned.

Few updates. Front clip is 95% mocked up. Heading to the shop, next up, get some color on the shell and slip this puppy in there.

I'm starting to wonder if I should start a separate build thread at some point? Or not.

Finally milled my own adapter plate and hub adapter. Much better then the available cast aluminum unit. Bit sexier as well. Parts are slowly trickling in. Hope to have the trans bolted to motor early next week, and new motor mount from laser cutter here for final assembly of the front unit. Battery enclosures coming soon as well.

Moment Motors used a B series transmission. So even the best B scenario is similar to the worst D transmission in a lot of ways. I am curious if they put a custom final drive in or not. The 3.25 Final drive of the D will offer usable gears. Besides, you can still tailor the torque curve of the motor with the controller. I know you can limit the overall power with the controller, I have to dig in and see if you can tailor it more like a gas motor if that makes sense... so your not 200 torque right out the gate.

Yes, first and second gears may be of limited value, even with the LSD...but once the tires stop spinning I would think the car will feel a bit more balanced front to back.

Driven normally it handle like any mini. You'll have less pitching & less bounciness. Driven hard you'll have massive understeer. Motor will overpower the tires.

I'm hoping the more even weight distribution between front and rear makes the car handle even better, if that is possible...

I think the mini will ride better with slight weight gain. My cabriolet rides really nice with added weight.

I remember being at the resort in Dorato, PR. Using an electric golf cart was so much fun.

I got the rough motor mount/controller mount mocked up this morning, and now pushing on with design 2 to sexy it up a bit. Gussets are not shown in this shot, but pretty happy with it. Shell is in primer as of last week, pushing on with K-series powered mini that is getting painted this week, then I'll get on with the EV shell as the parts are just starting to trickle in now.
