Hey Dwffy! Man, you are mechanical. That's beautiful! It would have taken me a year to come up with something like that. I tried too, and gave up. You should check out my car build thread sometime. It has my homemade pot. It was horrible.

Well, All that really matters is that the microswitch comes on some time before about 500 Ohms. 50 Ohms is very safe I think. OH! I forgot. My friend wrote an email to me about this very issue. He designed the control board in the first place, and is an actual professional electrical engineer. You might want to consider his idea. I'll forward it to you.
