This controller works great, I added a heat sink and 12v fan that keeps it cool even in Dallas 110F heat. The price includes the Controller, Heat Sink, fan, PB6 throttle and the angle aluminum stands I used to stand it up.

1) A Curtis 1231C-8601 controller, with FB6 footpedal. I never used this controller or pedal, since I decided to install the Zeva instead. I bought it from Swinburne Uni in...

I'm planning another conversion (still at the beginning) and would be thankfull about your opinnions about this constellation:
NetGain Warp 9 - Curtis 1231C @144V
My first conversion (VW New Beetle) is driven by a
D&D ES-31B and a Curtis 1221C @ 120V
It works, but with 50mph "comfort speed" it...
