** SPOILER ALERT **

Not that anyone is in suspense or anything, but info below makes the info in the videos even LESS interesting ... if that's possible ...

Fun, but in a scary sort of way. I'm an electrical guy and this is a pretty steep learning curve for me.

A lot of the fun of forums are the tangents we take. Post away!

if you need some EV parts, PM me.
Sure. I will PM. Right now I'm having issues with the accelerator. The Netgain Industrial controller wants 2 hall effect signals related by some formula. I can use their pot-box replacement .. but no one in Canada appears to sell it. Or their normal accelerator pedal. There is a setting for a Prius pedal ... do you have one of those?

What's the plan - clutch? No clutch?
I'm leaving the clutch in but since I removed the transmission I am told I need to 'bleed' the hydraulic lines to have it work again. Not sure if I will be successful on that one. But my old clutch plate with 370K on it will be my mechanical 'fuse' and tell me when I have turned up the controller TOO FAR ... I am told I should smell clutch when that happens.

Do you have a motor already? Controller?
Yes. Netgain warp 11 series wound DC with a Netgain Industrial controller.

Good luck with the build!
