Z2K and control electronics. The interface to the Zilla is on the left side
of the platform. Next to it is the Series/Parallel contactor which provides
an "electric transmission". Next is another pair of contactors which are
used for Forward/Reverse switching. All the way on the right is the main
contactor, which is used to provide power to the controller only when the
car is turned on.
more pictures are on the way. Keep checking back!
