Whee, that was exciting!
Pulled the electric cart off the trailer to reassemble it, but it had a bad ground on the controller lead through the 250Amp fuse, so when I tried to climb the driveway, the 18 GA chassis ground wire tried to carry about 200Amps. Fail. Lots of smoke, thought I toasted the expensive speed controller, but once the smoke cleared it was only a 5 foot wire.
