Update 10-07 done! Runs well and is pretty quick, modifications to contactors done to reduce resistance in contacts.
Added lighting and limiting switch to reduce current to motor unless peak power needed, will save motor from overheating and battery life. limits speed to 21 mph.
changed gearing for better acceleration and less top end, motor seems to run cooler now.
