Day 1068 “Anti-Hacking upgrade”

(3 days before g17)

I finally hammered out all the details on the keyless system. I redid the relays and put higher amp relays in to handle the actual work of carrying current. this was due in part by the limited size wire the relay board could hold. it caused too much voltage drop to activate the starter. That seemed to be the only problem with the first version. This is a more robust setup and it has a few redundant safety features to prevent hacking and accidental starts.

Tomorrow is the last day for mods. I have a couple more finishing touches for the speaker box and the back glass. But, other than that its all cleaning from now till G17.

Here’s the new relay setup. lots more wire and lots more space needed to fit. It barely fits where I put it.
