I'm happy to help.

You'll see in the thread (and based on it's title) that e*clipse intends to push it beyond 50kw. And there is a trailer towing/South Korean option that adds oil cooling.

If you get one try to get the crossbar with rubber bushings that connects the front mounts to the subframe.

As for the controller, I hope to use Paul Holmes Open Revolt controller (so I can write that on the vehicle in big letters); or else the GEVCU from EVTV:

stankoprowski -- if you switch the steering arms the Ackermann effect is backward. It would be necessary to heat and bend the arms to correct it. Then it would be necessary to re-temper the whole part.

It's bad news when the arm breaks in operation.
