This second-generation SuperPower was upgraded to dual 24v 500w esc’s. The front and rear bumpers are chrome because I swapped them from a first-gen Superpower. They match the jeep better.I mounted the esc’s on plastic cutting board. The esc’s are mounted below the seats. The stock hall-effect pedal works with the new esc's. I only needed to change connectors. The wiring from the esc’s is fed into the box for the stock controller. This is where I mounted the relays for braking and fwd/rev. The breakers and the on/off relays are mounted under the hood with the second battery. A dash mounted switch activates the on/off relays. The stock brake switch on a SuperPower is a normally-closed switch. I wanted a normally-open switch for the brake relay so I mounted a couple of magnets to the brake pedal and a magnetic switch under the floor. I only needed to drill 3 holes in the jeep for the brake switch conversion and it works great. The magnetic sensor switch is for a garage door opener (I think it was rated 30v 5a from GE). It has 2 n.c. contacts and 2 n.o. contacts. The switch is mounted with a piece of scrap cutting board. The magnets are from cabinet latches and two stacked worked perfect to throw the switch at half-pedal travel.
