Hi Guys

Replaced the MOSFET that had blown - and its neighbor that had a crack in it - possibly something to do with the pop

I think I found an issue in that the resister controlling the MOSFET that blew may not have been properly soldered in

It was more difficult than I expected to work on the board - when I took the resisters off the solder filled the holes - much more difficult than assembling a new board

Ended up with Mega-ohms resistance from the High voltage bits to the heat sink - took the car for a brief drive (sat in the passengers seat while the wife drove)
Still no bodywork!
fairly leaps up our hill with 170 amps!
Great fun!
