Additional FeaturesI'm using Katz battery heaters, and they are working well. The rear battery box is right behind the seats and does a good job of keeping the insides comfortably warm during the winter (avg 43 degrees,and wet)

Jim Husted added variable timing and adapted the back shaft for the timing sensor on the motors.
