Looks like a good application, thanks for posting that! Is the joystick still variable or is it only "full forward, full reverse"? I understand the knob is effectively your maximum limit but would expect the joystick to also be analog as you'd need that control normally in a wheelchair. I wonder how the output capabilities of these compare to the various scooter controllers.
Are you still running stock motors and the factory pinion? I think 24V can't drive them faster than 9-11mph on most of the vehicles, and may be fairly short-lived.. (what I mean by that is that at 24V the stock motors would have a theoretical no-load of 31000 RPM, which will only drive the tires at 11mph on that style Jeep with a 19T pinion and 14" wheels; to get it faster you need different gearing or a higher-RPM motor).
F-150 - 24-36V with homebrew 100A variable-speed motor controller, 4x 775 motors (no, it's NOT all-wheel-drive--look up 'quad damage' in the gearbox section for more info!)
Princess Mustang - 24/36V, 4x 775 motors, awaiting a speed controller....
Hurricane - 24V w/50A step-down controller, 775 motors
