      About 27K and I agree it doesn't make since but I do know that other
      Solectria Forces have had to replace the bearing in their motor. I have the
      car put up on a rack and we looked at it under power and could hear the
      sound in the drive train but could not see anything. I will take Otmar out
      in it tomorrow and let him listen to it to see what he thinks. Thanks for
      your suggestions.

      How many miles are on your motor? Surely the motor uses ball or
      roller bearings, not sleeve bearings. I'd think such bearings should
      last a long time. Make sure that some insulation or other material
      isn't rubbing the driveshafts. These might only be rubbing when
      under load.
