I just got the controller v1 in the mail.

Wow - Paul really packaged the heck out of it! It showed up in a box the size of a filing cabinet!

I would expect nothing less for his baby.

That said, I am now going to hook it up and go wild!!!!!!!!

Paul, you said to mount it heat sink side down, correct? The way everything is marked seems to imply that.

How close to 12V do I need for powering it? My original 12V car batt is fine right? (12.6V or whatever)

Also, I didn't see a polarity for the throttle wires. I will hook them up, if they don't work, I will swap them. Did we ever put a "high-pedal disable" feature in the software?

Also, do you know how much power the 12V pulls?
