I'm learning, so please forgive me for the ignorant question....

The half power reverse comes from the hot lead in the middle of the pack to the F&R ?

Sorry for the hijack mkernan. I hope you dont mind me asking here.

That is right. You can move that cable (green originally) from the Positive post of battery #3 to the F&R terminal right next to itself where the red cable connects. You will have a loop on the bottom terminals of the F&R ... By doing this the F&R shares a common feed of 36v for both F&R. This is a simple no cost mod.

Yeah Scotty, I just need to swap it with back left.

Lift is awesome! It definitely needs heavy duty springs. I can feel it bottom out often. Springs are in, just waiting on disc brakes before I tear it down.

Some of the hils I have climbed are crazy.

Definitely NOT! We get snow once in a blue moon. That's the only way to enjoy it.

I have a heated, well insulated garage. I have one of those pellet heaters that heats it nicely! Makes for a great project garage.

I cant help but notice tires. I am a GM and an auto and truck accessories place. We sell a lot of big rims and directional tires. You would be surprised how many cars out there have a tire on backwards. I get so use to it that it is the first thing I see
