Nice Tetris skills!

On the left around the smaller cables is a thingy like those ferrite beads on monitor cables. Is that to stop EMI from the controller interfering with something? What’s it around?

The yellow thing? Because that's an inline fuse holder.
Or do you mean the square box towards the bottom, that's an ignition relay.

I meant this but on closer inspection it looks like it might just be a connector or where the wires go into the controller

Yep, that's just the plug for the controller

Sigh...
More tests to be done but range appears to be about 35km when travelling mostly at 100km/h.
Im guessing the aerodynamics (or lack of) don't help me out much

So 33kW driving at 100kph.
It does sound high.
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.

had a quick play on Sunday and only 1 half of the pack was completely discharged the other 1/2 was at ~30%.
The pack gets charged by 2 x 48v chargers so at this point I have a suspicion (or at least some hopes and dreams) that 1 half of the pack wasn't fully charged when I started running around.
Its all early days because it wasn't even one outing, the km's were clocked up over about a month when I could find time and then adding to that the dcdc is on a permanent feed so it's a constant draw(exactly how much I don't know but should really check).
Much more accurate tests need to be performed...

Might want to do a good balance charge of both packs then. It's a amazing how much energy can be denied when you have an unbalanced pack (and a functioning BMS, lest you have a fire).
