So the transmission is going back in; makes sense. Has anyone posted a comparison of shifting and just leaving it in top gear? I was thinking that torque gets you off the line and horsepower limits the top speed.

I think you're right about the 'old, original clutch'.

The reason I ask is I'm following and wonder about the downside of a single-speed, clutchless, electric reverse drivetrain.

I need to educate myself about contactors. I noticed in Paul Holmes VW conversion he had a lanyard to pull on a shorted plug. But thread like have it in the trunk. Better to have it accessible from the driver's position?

thingstodo -- For whatever reason your post doesn't have a Thanks button. Thanks.
