I can wait.
The more testing you do the less likely i am to blow it up.

I am still plodding along with the build. Not getting much time on it due to work commitments but i have a couple of weeks off over Christmas so i am hopeful of making significant progress then.
The controller will be pretty much the final part added, so any delay just means it spends less time on a shelf in my garage watching me fumble around trying to make a nice home for it in the EV.
I was hoping my batteries would arrive tomorrow but they are currently sitting 1792km (1113 miles) away.
