    My understanding is it could be anything from a standard MOT to the Spanish Inquisition depending on who gets the application and what mood they're in. I don't want to give them any ammunition. ;)

    @Alibro you should look at getting a special fire extinguisher for your workshop / electric vehicle as neither dry chemical or Aquaeous Film Forming Foam extinguishers work on LIPO fires. [MEDIA] https://f500-fct.co.uk/f-500-fire-extinguishers/

    The Freelander is designed to take quite a bit of weight in the back, so suspect it'll remain sensible, but yes putting weight in front of the rear wheels is the best option, at least sharing the weight behind and in front of the rear axle is...

    LOL, it caught my attention. :eek: The controller has an ignition switch cable so it would be easy to rig up something to the key switch but the best thing would be to connect the brake pedal to the operate like ebike brake switches. This would...
