This gives you automatic low speed when in reverse only, and hi-speed forwards only. Still variable pedal so kid has ultimate control in forwards.
Hello, newbie here, thank you so much for posting this.
I just accumulated all the parts to make the ESC conversion. It's a hot wheels jeep wrangler, 12V with Hi/Lo. It's actually brand new, a birthday gift from a family friend to my kids. I have taken it into my own hands to improve their experience. LOL.
Anyways... it looks like this is the diagram I should follow. A couple questions. Thanks much in advance!
1) What gague wires should I use? I am a bit confused as to where is the high current and where is the low current, and also which part is 24V vs. 12V.
2) I don't need Hi-Lo in forward because the controller does the job in varying speed, correct? Only two wires into the F/R selector, basically just reverse polarity?
3) For a speed governor, I should wire the positive in line with the positive in hall effect pedal, and splice in the negative?
4) If I want a remote kill switch, I am basically turning the brakes on and off? Here's a remote kill switch I found on amazon and there are 4 leads: 12V, 12V ground, 12V switched, 12V switched ground. So I should wire 12V to wire going into brake pedal, 12V switched to wire going out of brake pedal, and both grounds to the wire that's connected to RV2-?
