    It can wait to the next tear down but those pictures of your settings may confuse newbies who may try to emulate them, hence my clarifying comment.

    I finally got around to this but i cannot switch the polarity of the hall sensor. I would have had to order a reverse direction pot.

    Very cool project! How are you loving it thus far? How difficult would it be to add traction loss?

    Great project, super rewarding. I won't race without it. I had traction loss in mind and have most of the framing stuff and a big 12v wiper motor, so another ard, h-bridge, and some kind of 24v to 12v regulator or ps.

    Ive been cleaning up the electrics, mounted the ps underneath, and building a motor cover with some fans.

    If i could do anything diffrent i would have made the pedals position more adjustable for my kid and for a f1 position. I cant move the seat cg that far forward for balance.

    Oh, man, you're making it very convincing for me to go down that path! I've been lurking around at making a 2DOF + TL from 80/20. Do you have pics of the current build?
