Good news!

I refined the control algorithms a bit and took the car for a spin. Accelerates very smooth now but has a mind of its own. Coming to a stop again is difficult, i.e. the throttle response is so slow, that you need to know well in advance when you want to stop. It even pushes against the brakes if you try to stop that way.
But thats nothing that can't be fixed, I'm happy for now.

We've found the final location for the controller and put in the front batteries to see if they fit:



What are the ideas for protecting the battery poles/the BMS from spray water and from being touched. My first idea was to build a wooden box. But is that stury enough? Will it hold back the batteries when the car crashes into something?
