    Am I the only one who didn't know about Zilla Viewer? Uses the DAQ data from the Zilla to give real time dials or guages so you can see what the amps, voltages, rpm, controller temp, ect... Found it at http://www.evgear.com.au/zillaview.html and used it to see my Zilla's temp going nuts. Here's...

    I drove the truck 55 miles just to see how far it'd go in 20 degree weather. As I got home, the brakes blew the front drivers side line. So today I replaced it, it fought me all the way, and I got back in the truck to test drive it. I idled down hill but when I started stepping on the gas...

    So I had a Curtis 500, swapped in a Zilla 1K. Its warmer than it was when I had the Curtis, where I had a 17-20 mile range in 20 degree weather, and now with the Zilla and 30+ degree weather, I had 13 miles last night. Yeah, it was fun accelerating past some of the old fashioned gas vehicles...

    While my wife was driving my 92 Escort conversion it "died". It started normally drove for about 1/2 mile and the dash indicator that the car is ready to drive went out. See evalbum.com/1818. I pulled the codes from the hairball using the palm pilot to find: *1131 - Shorted / Loaded...
