I have installed the same package u installed and it runs awesome from the way the factory set it. I am curious on how to adjust it now. I may give them a call tomorrow and see what they say.

I don't know how to adjust this with a meter and I wish your friend would tell us what he learned. Best I can explain this adjustment is this; The adjustment is for the top 50% of the total flow allowed. In this case 700 amps. The adjustment is 350 -700 amps.
The range of the adjuster screw is 3/4 of a turn or 270
270 adjustment adds 0- 350 amps to the base 350 amps or 1.3 amps per degree.
Here he was looking to add 150 amps to the base 350 for 500 amps...
150 amps Divided by 1.3 = 115 degrees of clockwise adjustment from the left stop would be awfully close.

From George: "To set the current to 500 amps I used a current clamp & digital volt meter to measure for high of the current. Created a load on the motor to reach the required max current. Remember that this current rating is for 30 sec to a minute only, not for a constant supply. The setting needed to be turned down, CCW, by a pot marked C/L on the side of the control"

This is his translation of the instructions he received from FSIP, he attached his equipment, strapped down the cart and completed load test. It took several "tests" to get it set to correct %. This is why I rely on my ET component builders, as I haven't the knowledge or equipment to figure it out without burning up something. On the last test, he stated "bingo" and we were done, he stated that those that know electronics will understand the process.

Greek to me, well worth the bottle of vodka and social hour.

Finally got to drive for distance today, good drop in distance, got to 16.3 miles before it was time to call for the trailer, didn't allow for batteries to drop below 60%. Street driving @ 23-26 mph (constant), going in large 1.8 mile circles. Although this battery pack is 5 yrs old and doesn't have the "ummph" that it used to. Going to hook up to monitor the voltage drop for pack and per battery next weekend, as I am sure I have a couple of weak cells.

Otherwise happy with new setup, and it likes to spin the tires in loose gravel or sand.
