treb: yep, the main motivation for getting the clutch disconnect in place was to fool around with a controller bypass (so I've got a parachute if I weld a contactor shut ).

At the risk of getting all gooey and sentimental: I want to say thanks to everyone who has contributed to the project via this thread. All the feedback, ideas, answers, questions & encouragement helped keep things moving along.
