All great ideas guys. Keep them coming! The more ideas we lay out the better chance we have of coming up with another great idea.

I just finished ordering a fancy ammeter for the Mirage. I was just going to use an analog meter with a shunt. But, the more I looked around, the more I found cool nerdy stuff that would just be nice and the price was quite reasonable. So, I ended up going with an ammeter that also measures voltage and amp hours used. You can also set a capacity, and it has a pretty battery gauge on it. This gauge should much better show just how much power I am able to regenerate with my regen braking setup.
