Power Testing the Fuel Cells

Over the past few weeks we've been working to setup a full scale load test for the fuel cells, and this weekend, we were able to make some power (roughly 600 horsepower) with them. We're testing with basically a large, team-made toaster, so that we have a place to put the power to simulate a full load run on the car. This way we'll be able to tune and optimize the power output for the entire car setup. We'll just say that it makes a pretty good heater...

We'll have more information later, but for now, we've got some photos from the tests:
