Ben, we will own that contest! 2nd place was an electric bike?! hahaha! 1st was a garbage car? I have a garbage car! hehe. It was $40 (after the motor sold) and it's electric! hahaha!!!

I'm going to try and fine tune the process with a second controller. I think version 2 will be much faster and simpler. Plus, I'll be using 2 sided PCB for the power section, which will simplify things considerably. It's only 3 ounce copper though, so I might have to lay down some extra solder on the capacitor side. Doing the instructable is a great idea.
