HPEVS AC51 / Curtiss 1239E Anybody interested in a simple mod I did to put the brake pot on the dash , can switch between having it come on with brake pedal or by dialing the knob on the dash , great for steep descents whilst 4x4ing no need to keep foot on pedal for max regen.

Also handy because I put a Truetrac in the rear diff & if I lift a wheel a tap on the brake forces the torque to the wheel on the ground , that don't work too well if the regen activates on the brake pedal.

nothing exciting about the video - just out for a sunday drive
