There are 2 beta testers so far, and another person who got just the board. I ordered 5 altogether. The arctic fox... ooh. That's good. Way better than what I had in mind. I'll have to make sure no one chants "white power" while driving their car though.

The mean time between failure for the capacitors I'm using in the driver section is 6900 years. haha. A bunch of 22uF MLCC 1210 package caps. They are rated up to 125degC too. The electrolytic caps are usually the weak link in a driver section.

kits and boards
