so the controller works with your throttle.. and controls how your motor responds and acts.. they also regulate the output voltage and amps(fuel/octane) going to the motor..
As I mentioned in another post I guess I have to go back to school to get the various mechanical and electrical relationships straight in my head. Fortunately I have the University of the Internet available for my extension classes. I'll be looking, but can you point me at any sites that have a good explanation of an appropriate controller? Thanks for the help now and in the future.
