As I look at this web site I realize I have not updated it in a long time.  But we have still been busy working on the truck.  It just takes twice as long to get stuff done as I think it should.  Originally I hoped I could get it done in 6 months, but now we are into the second year.  Oh well.

On the topic of taking too long, I decided in the interest of getting something on the road, to give up for now on the idea of building my own motor controller.  It is not that I don't think I could eventually get something working.  It's just that between my day job and everything else that needs to get done on the truck, I simply don't have time to work on it.

So I decided I would just go ahead and buy a Curtis controller.  I know it is the low end but I understand they are very reliable and of course cost quite a bit less than anything else available.  I considered the Kelly controller but they have such a bad reputation I decided against it.  I was also interested in a Synkromotive but I could not get any information about when they might finally be available, despite my emails to the company, so I gave up on that.

Here is the Curtis controller I received today.  I look forward to getting it mounted in the truck.
