DIY Open Source Tesla Controller

So I just wanted to introduce this project on Ecomodder. I have been working for the past few months with several donated Tesla Model S parts. Front and rear drive units and a 10kw gen 2 charger so far. I am developing fully open source control boards for these and other OEM hardware. All files are on my github :

I have just finished bench tests of a logic board to run the Large rear drive unit. Latest video :

Now, Cole, when you shift the gear and that little needle on the ammeter goes into the red and reads 2000 Amps, that's bad.
