Hey Intrigued! That fork in your picture is confusing me again!

I'm FINALLY adding a watchdog timer, so that in the event of the controller hanging, the chip will just reset. You will go into high pedal lockout mode, but that just means that you would have to take your foot off the gas pedal for an instant and then drive on. I've never had the u-controller hang, so I assume it's pretty rare. I'll have to make sure the mosfet driver is disabled in the event of a u-controller reset.
