    This seems to be the subforum where regeneration is discussed most frequently. I see anecdotes and references to people having done regen experiments, etc. Does anyone know if there is a central repository for regen information? I was initially just curious as to what % of braking energy is recaptured vs speed and rate of deceleration, but looking around the forum, I'm now curious about the other unexpected things, like the delay between braking/deceleration and when regen kicks in.

    Just wondering if anyone's compiling the findings on this...

    I believe 80% of braking energy is recaptured by regen.
    I'll try to find the repository of regen information for you.
