    After reviewing related posts, I decided to add mine, which should be much simpler. I have a Pishiang controller from a Shoprider Dasher 3 which is rated for 40A (highlighted below).


    I would like to modify it to run at 70A.

    What components would I likely need to upgrade? Relay, capacitors, voltage regulators? Anything else?

    I think the motor should be able to handle it for short periods, or at least I'm willing to risk trying it.

    Any tips, references, suggestions (e.g. "don't waste your time") would be much appreciated for my first post.
