100% done with 2 of the 4 1000amp controllers. Well, must add the enclosure. 95% done with the 3rd. 30% done with the 4th... I need to test the finished ones out. I got some free samples of precharge resistors. They can handle a crazy amount of surge energy. Like 3000 joules over any amount of time you like. The 22 capacitors are only like 390 or 400 or so joules.

Oh dang it, it's actually like 99% done, since I need to still make the stupid DB-9 connector plug thing for each of them.
