But is it salvageable? Are there any parts in this controller that can be upgraded to handle real power(aka 1000A)? I own a research company and want to use this for development projects but don't want to expect too much as I've got double the amps the ep is "rated" for but the igbt data sheet says max 5800w 1000A 1200v thanks for your thoughts!

Is it capable of rated power? I'll be testing it for my company and would like to use it @160v 1000a but don't want to expect too much.

Sorry for the super late response, but I think you should have decent expectations for it. My BMW is about 3500 pounds and it hits 40mph at 72v @ 1000a, and that's on my proof of concept lead acid battery pack. It'll be even more peppy once it is at 144v on lithium
