NetGain Controller recalled

I got an email from Ryan at EVSource to send the controller back for a fix.  So I managed to borrow a space in a friends garage to park the EV for a few days while this takes place.  I am burning gas like crazy in the Suburban again.  It was cold this morning when I drove Analisa to the train station.  I have grown accustomed to the almost instant heat in the EV.

The Controller is one of the big ticket items in the EV, at around $1,950.  This industry is in its infancy so there will be some modifications along the way which will take the EV off the road.

The Lead Acid batteries are struggling in the cold.  The range has dropped dramatically, another reason to switch to LiFePo4 batteries.
