is this a problem? I've done a bit of EV reading (likely not as much as you) and I haven't come across a "WOT" controller failure (yet).
You know, in the year and a half I've been following the EVDL, 2 Cursit failure stories jump to mind (there are undoubtedly more) - and they were "fully closed throttle" failures.

I haven't actually read about a WOT controller failure, though I'm sure if you ask on the EVDL, you'll get some.

Still, everyone insists controllers will fail fully on, and they're basically ticking time bombs...
