    Hi @Vdub180
    You might want to get some kind of heatsink/cooling on the MM chips before you put it under to much stress.

    I used the smc 1.6.7 software but didt make any alterations just up loaded as it was. No motors connected just tester to check voltages

    You shouldn't really be changing the parameters in the code other than the #define MODE line.

    All user adjustable settings can be changed and tested with the Windows SMC3Utils.

    EDIT: To avoid confusion, there is no SMC3 version 1.6.7 - The 1.6.7 is the Arduino IDE version number.
