    I'm working with GroundHOG-2010 to make a KERS-like system with a battery system. The problem is that I'm having trouble getting the regen to be much higher. We've tried increasing "maximumWantedRegenTorque", and working in .lua for other things, but we can't seem to increase the regen amount much.

    Is it limited? If so, how do we get around the limit? Or is there a simple line for regen efficiency? I don't like just increasing regen torque, because currently it's not subject to ABS

    I also can't use
    "defaultRegen":
    "brakeRegenCoef":
    because when running hybrid it starts to mess with things, but even when running a full EV vehiclecontroller it'll still not charge as much as you'd expect from a KERS system

    Have you ever defined a regen torque curve? If not, the regen tend to be very weak.
    Add a "regenTorqueCurve" right below the "torque" curve.
    Example:
    Code:
            "regenTorqueCurve":[
                ["rpm", "torque"],
                [0, 1],
                [500, 25],
                [1000, 50],
                [1500, 75],
                [2000, 100],
                [3000, 125],
                [4000, 150],
                [5000, 150],
                [6000, 150],
                [7000, 150],
                [8000, 131],
                [9000, 117],
                [10000, 105],
                [11000, 95],
                [12000, 88],
                [13000, 81],
                [14000, 75],
                [15000, 70],
                [16000, 66],
            ],

    I did, but it didn't have the desired effects

    Please post you related jbeam files, the "defaultRegen" might be put in the incorrect location

    Kind of unrelated, but where is the electric motor positioned in this system? Is it replacing the alternator, in the transmission, or directly connected to the wheels?

    Possibly in the place of front differential slot
