They were emailing me about getting a prototype. Then they wanted to do some testing, and then let me know some possible modification that I could make for them. The trouble is, the Indian government charges people 102% of the cost of a product just so they can get it. So, a $600 controller kit would cost them about $1300 including shipping. I'd make it for free, but I can't afford the parts for one. So, the loose plan at this point is to make them some basic stuff like a power board. Then they can drill their own heavy metal parts that take me forever to do, using the etched board to locate all the necessary holes. They really should be talking to Jack Bauer about all this. I think some big dang igbts would work better in racing conditions anyway.
