Unrelated but have you watched Rich Rebuilds' mini cooper conversion videos? They might be helpful if you haven't.Hi all,
I am beginning an EV conversion with a mini cooper from the early 2000s (I'm still trying to choose which year I want but I know it's going to be a model from 2002 - 2010) and I'm trying to make my first purchase for either one or two potentiometers. I've heard that it's good to use two potentiometers because it can be a safety to a faulty potentiometer giving a false reading to the controller, since both potentiometers must have the same readings for any power to be sent from the controller to the motor.
So essentially my question is: is it necessary that I purchase two potentiometers because of the risk of one potentiometer becoming faulty and telling the controller to send too much (or too little) power to my motor or should I just stick with one?
Please let me know what you think.
