I am working on those changes and the updated layout. These boards are ment to be used with my external driver boards as well. So they dont have the resistor hook ups on them, only 2 outputs, 1 for each driver board.

If somebody wanted to order me a board after I finish the design, it would greatly speed up the prototype. I have almost all the parts to stuff the board with (caps, resistors). I think it was like $24 for 1.

So what are the advantages of the SR and SMD versions over the original, and can I combine the two? Also, if I fund the prototype board, does that mean I get to be the first beta tester (assuming the price isn't too high and I get my motor) I would love to have a semi-functional EV by the end of the summer.
