We have had endless inquiries from those wishing to procure their own drive unit and somehow use our system to make it work at much less expense. This actually rarely works out. Drive units can be damaged internally and something as small as a single thermistor temperature sensor inoperative will prevent the drive unit from working at all. We get about 3 good ones for every four we purchase from salvage.
Tesla has issued several versions of their firmware and our system does not work with all of them. And Tesla has itself had some problems with drive units failing. And so we recommend a drive unit or full subclip that we have tested, installed a Quaife ATB, and know works with our system as a starting point.
But the quest for an inexpensive means of controlling these drive units is relentless, and the hopeful are at least "hopeful". And so we have made our basic controller kit available at a very reasonable price to allow those experimenters basically to learn the hard way.
Kit includes:GEVCU Controller with Tesla control software
- Wiring harness
- PKP2400 CAN Control Switch Panel for Tesla Drive Unit
- IVTSCALE 1000Amp current/voltage sensor
- Custom Speedhut CAN Gage set for Tesla Drive Unit
This is the very basic control system. Works with most 2013-2015 drive units but is NOT GUARANTEED TO WORK WITH YOUR DRIVE UNIT. Additionally, we can provide only LIMITED product support to you in your efforts to get this to work with an UNKNOWN DRIVE UNIT. No returns and no refunds on this product.
