logisystem controllers?

I was all ready to buy the curtis 1231c controller ( small truck, ADC 4001 motor 144v pack) when I met Dave Cloud ( yes a relative of the guy who owns cloudelectric) and he is trying to convince me to purchase the logisystem 550 amp 144 volt controller, which he says is much improved over the original model. Dave also says that their ( logisystems) coustomer service is very good and that they stand by their 1 yr. warrantee. anyone with experience or concerns:confused: thanks again.

I have one in my saturn. Make sure to use plenty of cooling and it seems to work which I wouldnt really call a fault of the controller they all need to be cooled well (and perhaps dont cut off the main contactor with the pedal.) I have 5000 miles on mine so far but I have transfered the batteries to a solectria force so its sitting in the garage. If you do a search you will find my post about how I cooled it with part numbers for the fans as well.

I agree. I believe the main cause for failure of any controller is too much heat. I have a Logisystems and have had it in use for 2 years now with not as much as a hiccup. However, I keep it cooled and do not drive it hard. I have never floored the car. Also, my car weighs a total of 2340 lbs. Not really heavy so easier on the controller. I have had satisfactory response from Logisystems. They upgraded it for free shortly after I bought it and did it in a timely manner

By the way, I now have had my WalMart Maxx-29's in use for over 2 years and they are starting to show signs of wearing out. But not bad for a cheap battery. I would like to go to a newer technology battery but do not know enough about them to make a smart purchase.
