We have it working pretty well. @MikeKC
It should be time to start a public thread on installation and tuning. Mike found that the 8kw motor fit in his Gem with only slight interference to a shock coil.
First test shows 42mph @ <7800 rpm. 12:1 gears.
He is using an interface board to connect the new control to the Gem harness.
Version 2 is in progress that will add some protection diodes, and corrected logic for F-Turf-R oem switch.
@Troyin909 did all the initial work. We are just cleaning up some loose ends.
Our goal is to have a partial kit available for <$1500
Motor and controller.
Grant has a motor on the way. It may not be applicable to most of us, as it’s going in a 2016 model.
