I got most of the high-voltage wiring on the component board done today. The pic shows the layout I ended up with. The most positive and most negative of the pack will be attached to the shunt and the fuse, and the motor wiring comes out the bottom of the board. Eventually, I'll put those big Anderson connectors on here to make it really easy to remove.

This is the finished throttle sensor setup. To disconnect it, I'll just loosen a wing nut on the cable and remove it. It should also be a lot easier to adjust than when it was mounted to the firewall.

This is for anybody that wants to see what's really inside a Raptor. I had mine apart today for a little while. I'm mounting throttle sensor to the case of the controller. It should be a lot more portable and reliable this way.

The beginnings of a removable component board. I should be able to transfer this between my truck and my Tercel, eliminating the need for a new controller, contactors, etc., at least initially.

I'm spending the afternoon today cleaning up in preparation for the Discovery Channel. They're coming over for an interview on Monday. My truck is getting a bit of a workout moving my dad's cars around.

Charger boards all wired up, and ready for a test fit.

One board, all wired up. Now I just have to add a connector and mount it in the car.

One down, two to go...

One of the charger boards. I'll have two of these in the trunk, and another with four chargers under the hood.

I'm spending a few hours today working on mounting the 14 chargers for my Tercel. I'll make sure to post more pics when I'm done.
