El xd questions

This is a copy from the e2 forum. Any comments over here?

Thanks for the responses so far.
I’m getting closer to a decision as to which way to go, but i need a clear understanding of what changes have occurred over the year. I know about the brakes and suspension changes but what is not so clear are the charger, motor and controller changes that have been made and when. I have conflicting information about these subsystems as well as their ability to deal with different battery types and capacities (charger). I am sure this must be a common question - can someone point me to a summary of these types of things. Also interested as to when the gear ratios where changed on the elxd version- there are at least 2 different rations from what I have read.

Any assistance is appreciated.
